Abhyanga is a massage of the body with warm oil. Abhyanga may be done using oil, herbal powder, herbal pastes or ghee. The material is often pre-medicated with herbs for specific conditions. When warm oil applied to the skin get absorbed through the skin cracks and inter-cellular spaces. The warmth of the oil and the hand movements during the massage helps to increase the peripheral circulation. This will enhance the absorption of the active ingredients in the oil through the blood and lymphatic circulation. The active ingredients will be transferred to the target organs accordingly.
