Patra, which refers to a leaf, and pottali, which refers to a bundle, make up the term "patra pottali." Patra pottali sveda is a type of Ushma sveda and refers to the svedana conducted with a bundle of vatakaphahara patra.
Patra Pottali Sweda is a treatment that causes sweating by applying a heated pack of particular herbal leaves to the Upastambhita Vyadhi avastha. Various medicinal Vata-hara leaves, such as Eranda, Arka, Nirgundi, Dhatura, and Nimba, are grated for use in this therapy. Garlic, grated wet coconut, lemon, an earthen pan, Vatahara Taila, two cloth pieces, and thread are also used to make pottali. According to Abhyanga's recommendations, the treatment process is carried out for 5–10 minutes in each position, and the entire operation is finished in 35–45 minutes.

The patient should therefore be seated with one leg over the Droni and Talam should be applied with the appropriate Kalka.
After that, you should practice abhyanga for 15 to 35 minutes while using the recommended taila.

The proper execution of this deep balancing therapy requires the involvement of several therapists and follows a complex process..The rejuvenating Kashayaseka therapy is offered just after an Abhyanga massage. While the body is being massaged, a warm herbal decoction is flowing over it in delicate rivulets.
This therapy has lasting effects and is very mild and calming. Varicose veins are treated, along with inflammation, pain from the body, rheumatoid and osteo-arthritis, and deep nervous system relaxation. As a skin anti-aging treatment, it also enhances circulation and skin tone. Additionally, it is recognised to eliminate excess Vata and Kapha buildup.
Kashayam and dhara both mean “continuous pouring,” respectively.The herbal decoction is applied to the entire body or a specific area during this treatment. The decoction is chosen based on your medical condition.
The medicine in the decoction comes into touch with the skin and penetrates the skin pores, soothing the mind and inducing sleep. The pharmacological effects of the medications and the temperature that is maintained throughout the course of treatment serve as a counter irritant, a thermal stimulation that may modify pain and itching sensations.
This treatment can be used to treat neurological illnesses, muscle pain, inflammation, and skin conditions like eczema, dermatitis, and psoriasis depending on the herbs chosen to make the decoction.
