Abhyangam in Sanskrit means ‘Oil Application.’ This relaxing and refreshing full body massage is done with medicated herbal oils. The number of strokes and pressure vary with the condition of the individual. This massage is indicated daily to prevent aging and degeneration. It helps to treat the whole body physically, mentally and emotionally while balancing the doshas. Its rhythmic motion helps to relieve joints and muscles from stiffness and helps in freeing body movements.
This stimulating treatment increases blood circulation, which in turn encourages quick removal of metabolic wastes while also providing relief to diseases such as anxiety, fatigue, circulatory disorders, arthritic problems, backaches, and injuries. The effects of both are compounded since the heat and steam allow the medicated oils to seep into the body and helps to nourish from the inside.
It has become popular because of its effective way of conditioning the body. Abhyangam can be used therapeutically. The therapy is designed around each individual, to suit his or her disease or condition. An ayurvedic physician can assess this and will then decide on the appropriate oils and the exact way of this therapy.
