Abhyanga - Oil Massage

Abhyanga is the anointing of the body with oil. Often medicated and usually warm, the oil is massaged into the entire body before bathing. For thousands of years, people have used abhyanga to maintain health,benefit sleep patterns, increase longevity. It has also been used as a medicine for certain disorders. Abhyanga can beĀ  incorporated into a routine appropriate for almost anyone.

It is believed that there are seven layers of tissue in the body (called dhatus). Each successive layer is more concentrated and life-giving. For sneha to reach the deepest layer, it is believed that it must be massaged into the body for 800 matras, roughly five minutes. To give this kind of attention to your entire body, you may need about fifteen minutes. Considering the benefits that have been gained by people for thousands of years, fifteen minutes per day is a minimal amount of time.
