An amazing masterpiece of Ayurveda known to invigorate and rejuvenate the inner you, Abhyangam is one of the most important practices to maintain a healthy body and mind. The meaning of ‘Abhyanga,’ is the application of oil to the body. It is the process of oleation, smearing medicated oils all over the body followed by gentle massaging of the whole body.
The herbal oil used for this purpose is decided by the Ayurvedic physician on basis of the patient’s Dosha Prakriti. A variety of Ayurvedic techniques are applied along the energy channels (Srotas) of your body in a synchronized manner to restore the flow of vital energy, Prana. Also, the systematic massage with Ayurvedic herbal oils help squeeze out toxic accumulation from the channels.
Abhyangam treatment addresses imbalances within the body and works to bring a person’s Dosha back into its original state.The massage along with steam bath produces great results. The effects are compounded since the heat and steam allow the medicated oils to seep into the body and nourish them from the inside.
