Abhyangam in Sanskrit is referred to oil massage. During Abhyangam treatment, an ayurvedic massage is performed by a trained therapist using medicated oils. A massage done by changing seven positions works both on the physical and mental level. Abhyangam stimulates body circulation and provides relief from stress, fatigue, and anxiety.
A whole body massage performed using Ayurvedic oils is very effective in case of joint pain, muscle stiffness, and in diseases like osteoarthritis, spondylitis, muscular spasm and certain case of sports injuries.
