Herbal Topical Application Therapy

Lepanam or Herbal Topical Application Treatment may be used for anti-inflammatory purpose or as an analgesic in case of joint inflammation, swelling and pain; for skin health or simply for cosmetic enhancement of skin texture. Lepanam involves the application of a specially prepared herb paste on to the entire body or specific affected area. This meticulously crafted paste is a harmonious blend of herbs, leaf extracts, buttermilk, and herbal powders that are carefully selected to match the individual's specific ailment and dosha imbalances.

Lepanam has been time tested to work wonders in treating skin afflictions, wounds, swelling of the joints and other inflammatory conditions. The action and benefit of a lepanam varies according to the herbs it comprises and the health condition it addresses, hence the need for a one-on-one consultation with the Ayurvedic Physician to identify the specific need is important. The herb paste is then customized accordingly. A lepanam may be applied over the head for those suffering from mental disorders, insomnia, stress and dandruff. While a special herb paste is applied over the face (Mukhalepanam) for smooth and glowing skin. It may help treat acne, exfoliate dead skin, diminish pigmentation and skin discoloration and is especially beneficial in chronic skin conditions like Eczema and Psoriasis too. A lepanam may also comprise special analgesic and anti-inflammatory herbs, proven effective in alleviating joint pain, inflammation and swelling that arises from Arthritic and Rheumatic conditions. These herb pastes offer targeted relief by promoting blood and nutrient circulation to the affected joints and alleviating discomfort and pain.

" I heard about Ayurvedagram Bali for the first time from my wife, who had been to Ayurvedagram Bangalore. She was there for about a week and felt a significant difference. To me, initially the whole concept of Ayurveda was wasting money, neither did I believe in Yoga. But when Arvind and Monica told me about Ayurvedagram Bali, somehow my gut told me I needed to come here and I just followed my instinct and came to Bali. I came here with back pain, shoulder pain, knee pain and sinus issues that have plagued me throughout life. Now I get up with a clear nose, no runny nose anymore, pains gone. I feel much lighter, rejuvenated, detoxed and cleansed. So, I believe my purpose has been achieved.”
