Svedana is the therapeutic application of heat so that
the pores and channels of the body open. By applying heat
to the body the ama (toxins) can be released easily.

Sweating has been found to be very effective for many organic problems from the common cold to cancer. Svedana is particularly effective when done after Abhyanga.
It is purifying and softens the body.
