SARVANGA DHARA

Sarvang Dhara is an Ayurvedic massage technique that originated in India. This massage involves pouring a steady stream of warm medicated oils or decoctions all over the body, particularly the entire torso or "sarvang," which provides a deeply relaxing and rejuvenating experience.

What does Sarvang Dhara mean?

Sarvang Dhara is derived from two Sanskrit words: "Sarvang" meaning entire body, and "Dhara" meaning flow. Thus, Sarvang Dhara means "the flow on the entire body."

How it is done:

  • The person lies on their back while the therapist pours a steady stream of warm medicated oils or decoctions all over their body.

  • The therapist uses a special pot with a spout to control the flow of the liquid and directs it to specific areas of the body.

  • The oils or decoctions used in Sarvang Dhara may vary depending on the person's individual needs.
