Abhyangam means ‘oil massage’ in Sanskrit and that is exactly what it does. Experts have defined it as an intense deep tissue holistic treatment of the body. It can either be performed individually or as a part of the Panchkarma therapy of eliminating toxic elements from the body.
Indian Ayurveda has been for a long time considered an alternative to modern medicine and Abhyangam is an ayurvedic procedure. The oils used during the treatment are prepared according to the needs of individual recipients and are pre medicated with various herbs.
This ayurvedic massage is used for healing and detoxifying the body. The use of natural substances for the treatment is much appreciated by people and thus is one of the favorites when it comes to choosing. It is distinguished from traditional or western massage as it is seen by practitioners as a holistic medicinal treatment rather than an actual massage.
