The word Abhyangam is a Sanskrit word, which literally means oil application all over the body. It is a program where the prescribed oil is liberally applied using different strokes & oils as per the need of the body. This relaxing and refreshing full body massage is a masterpiece of Kerala Ayurveda. It is done with medicated herbal oils by two therapists in a synchronized manner for almost 45 minutes. The number of strokes and pressure varies with the condition of the individual. This massage is done to prevent ageing and degeneration. This seven-position therapy will treat the whole body physically, mentally and emotionally while balancing and eliminating the doshas. Its rhythmic motion helps to relieve joints and muscles from stiffness and helps in freeing the body movements. This stimulating treatment increases blood circulation, which in turn encourages quick removal of metabolic wastes, while providing relief to diseases such as anxiety, fatigue, circulatory disorders, arthritic problems, backaches and injuries. The effects of both are compounded since the heat and steam allow the medicated oils to seep into the body and nourish from inside. It has been stated in the texts of Ayurveda that abhyangam should be done by everybody and everyday who desires for good health. The Kerala (southern India) style of Abhyangam uses 7 positions in an hour of Abhyangam. Sometimes there is even the foetal position, where the vertebras are completely exposed, as they need oil nourishment. The reason behind all the positions is to cover maximum surface area, so that there is more absorption of oil.
