Snehana (Abhyangam)





Snehana (Abhyangam)

Snehan means “love” in Sanskrit, which is referred to as “internal and external oleation”. You may find internal oleation directions in Purvakarma, and external oleation consists of Abhyanga (medicated herbal oil massage). In Abhyanga, warm herbal oil is applied to the entire body with unique strokes and pressure points, designed to help move toxins towards the gastrointestinal tract.

Daily Abhyanga also help make the superficial and deep tissues soft and supple, ripening the doshas at fault, helping to remove stress and nourishing the nervous system. Snehan is usually given daily for three to seven days, or as indicated. Daily Snehan profoundly relaxes the body and mind and improves the flow of energy by opening the channels of circulation. In addition Snehan prepares the body and mind to flush excess toxins and doshas from the system.
