What is Pinda Massage?

Pinda massage or Pinda Sweda is performed with closed bags or sphere-shaped cloth bags made of linen or cotton, called pindas, which are filled with Asian healing herbs. Rice is also added for consistency during the massage.

Aromatic and medicinal herbs are prepared and mixed with essential oils which are steamed and heated. They are then applied to the body to benefit from their detoxifying, soothing and moisturising properties. It combines aromatherapy with the therapeutic power of phytotherapy.

How is the pinda massage performed?

Before performing the pinda massage, the skin is usually impregnated with a carrier oil (e.g. sweet almond oil) to facilitate the sliding of the pindas and also to moisturise the skin in depth.

The person who is going to undergo this treatment is placed face down and begins by pressing the soles of the feet with the pindas, followed by the ankle, calf, legs, buttocks, waist, back, arms and neck.

This massage should be done in an upward direction. The muscles and tendons are massaged with strong, yet light and harmonious movements. The pindas should be massaged gently on the neck.

Origin of the pinda massage

Massage with aromatic pindas has its origins in oriental medicine and Ayurveda. Ayurveda is the traditional medicine of India and its aim is to unite body-mind and spirit.

This Indian massage usually lasts 60 to 90 minutes, during which time total relaxation is achieved. The therapists or masseurs work and massage fundamental points of the body, drain toxins, relieve pain and tension in those areas. There are hydrating pindas, draining pindas and reducing pindas.
