Abhyanga

Abhyanga

 In the name of Ayurvedic Massage, Abhyanga had already gained the worldwide attention and popularity. In Ayurveda, Abhyanga is renowned for the application of oil to the skin, which is followed by massaging in specific directions. The practice of massaging in specific direction enhances blood circulation, helps in elimination of toxins from tissues, soothe mental and physical fatigue, boost the musculoskeletal system functioning, remove heaviness and stiffness of the body and ultimately results in complete relaxation of the whole body and mind. Even before the Vedic period, Abhyanga therapy was practised and is known to be the ancient practice in Ayurveda.

  • Next step is to let the patient lie on the back so that oil can be applied on the chest, abdomen, face as well as the anterior portions of the limbs.
  • After that, the patient is asked to rest on his/her left side. By such a posture, right side of the back, trunk, right shoulder, right arm and outer side of the right hip and lower limb are easily accessible.
