Abstract

Ayurvedic massage is also known as Abhyanga. It is an ayurvedic holistic, synchronized massaging of the body towards the movement of arterial blood, basically in the opposite direction of hair growth. This massages is used for healing and detoxifying the body, mind and spirit. This is done to increase the blood flow towards the distant parts of the body and avoid overwhelming the heart with a sudden venous return. Abhyanga may be done using oil, herbal powder, herbal pastes or ghee. The massage strokes are long and flowing to keep the body warm for maximum absorption of the medicinal oil. This helps reduce your body fatigue and knots in the muscles. Here's what one says — "Give yourself a full-body oil massage on a daily basis. It is nourishing; pacifies the doshas; relieves fatigue; provides stamina, pleasure and perfect sleep; enhances the complexion and the luster of the skin; promotes longevity; and nourishes all parts of the body."Purpose: The purpose of this study is to establish the importance of Abhyanga (massage) in Dincharya.
