Ayurvedic approach to pain management: It suggests that mind and body both react to a pain experience. A physical pain is also experienced by the brain as the pain relieving chemicals are triggered.

These known treatments are famous for absolute healing, boosting immunity and relieving stress.
Ayurvedic therapies for pain : Ayurveda suggests therapies to relieve pain such as “kati vasti” extremely effective for the disorders of the spine and back pain which is treated by warm oil poured in a reservoir made of dough, placed on the back.
