Udvarthanam refers to elevated, upward strokes during a medicated powder massage. Udvarthanam is an Ayurvedic weight loss treatment consisting of the Ayurvedic application of medicated powder for one hour, steam treatment for twenty minutes, and then the pouring of medicated water continuously over the body simultaneously by two Ayurvedic practitioners for one hour. Combined with an Indian vegetarian diet and aerobics or cardio workout, you may see weight loss in a matter of weeks. The unique Ayurvedic treatment of the stomach loosens fatty tissue and prepares it to be burned through exercise. Udvarthanam helps to break down cellulite under the skin. It reduces cellulite and excess fat accumulation under the subcutaneous tissue through unique Udvarthanam strokes. You can actually feel the fat detaching from surrounding tissue and feel it loose in your skin after the sometimes painful treatment. No pain, no gain. This enhances the weight loss process in a regimented exercise routine. Udvarthanam is an effective treatment for abdominal obesity, overweight people, cellulite breakdown, and the tightening of loose skin after weight loss.

Udvarthanam is also a good treatment for people with problems relating to the nervous system, hemiplegia, paralysis, muscular weakness, diabetic neuropathy, sclerosis of blood vessels, and sciatica of kapha origin.
