Ksheeradhara in Ayurveda

Sarvangadhara is dhara (streaming) over the whole body and part of the Purvakarma therapies help loosen up the toxins prior to the main course of treatment.

Milk, especially cow’s milk is the liquid used for Ksheeradhara. In some occasions, buffalo milk also can be used. In both cases herbal decoctions are also added with fresh milk. At least two well-trained attendants are necessary to carry out this treatment effectively.

The treatment is carried out in all seven standard positions. Ksheeradhara is recommended for diseases caused due to disrupted vata humour.
