Warm paste of ayurvedic herbs are applied to the body and let dry, while compressions are administered to back, legs and arms. Herbs are removed with a loofa and exfoliated skin is soft and smooth after a warm bath. Very brisk massage is done with herbal balancing oil to help detoxify and nourish the skin.
