    Udvartana

    Udvartana is an invigorating full body massage done in a rhythmic motion using herbal powder or paste. ... This massage also improves muscle tone and circulation apart from cleansing and nourishing the skin. Udvartana is highly recommended for dissolving excessive fat from the body.
    Massage is done in an upward direction i.e. from below upwards (opposite to thetraditional or conventional massage as done in Abhyanga in which strokes are given from above downwards). Massage is done in a direction opposite to that of the body hairs (which point downwards) i.e. Pratiloma gati. This means to tell that when Udwarthana is done, we are massaging in such a way that we are elevating the hairsf rom a ‘downward pointing direction’ and push them so as to change their direction and point upwards (the hairs come back to their normal position after the procedure is completed).
