What is Abhyanga?
Our body needs equal pampering from outside as it needs from within. In Ayurveda, Gently rubbing of warm oil over the head, body and feet is known as Abhyanga. It should be done slowly and gently so as to let the oil absorb in the skin. It’s an ancient ritual of self-massage & is an integral part of ayurved advised Dinacharya (Daily Regimen).
Daily Abhyanga wards off exertion, it balances vata and nourishes the body. It makes your skin smooth and healthy. It also strengthens the muscles and is very good for nervous system. It aids lymphatic drainage. It boosts blood circulation, lubricates tissues & hydrates the body.
Applying oil before a bath ensures you stay moisturized as the water seals the moisture content of oils and makes it easy to absorb. It takes about 285 seconds (900 Matrakalas) for the oil to reach the deep tissues. Hence, abhyanga should be minimum 4 mins & can extend upto 45mins to get maximum benefits.
It is one of the best therapies for insomnia. A good abhyanga relaxes your nerves and helps in relaxing and unwinding. Abhyanga also helps to maintain optimum levels of Vitamin D also known as sunshine vitamin. Abhyanga improves the skin at the most cellular level & helps it to synthesize Vitamin D from the sun rays. So, find a good spot with enough early morning sunlight for Abhyanga.
