Why should you get it?

Ayurvedic Poultice Massage is a simple heat therapy. Like any other heat treatment, it is detoxifying and induces sweat that helps eliminate toxins. The poultice will relieve aches and tensions in the muscle as well as stretch the connective tissues in the body. The heat of the poultice (or potlis) opens the pores and alleviating pain, stiff, sore or pulled muscles and ligaments. The hot compresses are ideal for relieving chronic back aches, arthritis, even skin conditions, migraines and chronic stress or anxiety. The herbs used in the poultice possess medicinal properties that are anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, astringent and antioxidant.
