Abhyanga Therapy - Panchakarma Therapies
Abhyanga (Oil Massage) is a form of Ayurvedic medicine that involves massage of the body with dosha-specific warm herb infused oils. The oil is usually pre-mixed with herbs for specific conditions. Abhyanga may be performed by one or more therapists working in sync, but it can also be done by oneself. Abhyanga is a full body massage, which is usually done with medicated sesame oil. In Ayurveda the word for oil is taila. Taila is originated from the formal word tila. Tila means sesame.
