Abhyanga is the Sanskrit word for an oil massage given to the entire body. It is most commonly performed with sesame oil. Although this daily ayurvedic routine takes only a minute or two, when it is performed habitually the results are multi-dimensional.
This is ayurvedic treatment in which a medicated herbal paste is applied over the entire body and allowed to dry. The ingredients of the paste vary according to the nature of the ailment. It is then removed using a special deep tissue technique which leaves the muscles and fascia revitalized and flexible.
