Abhiyanga (Sanskrit: अभ्यंग or अभ्यङ्ग “oil massage“) is a form of Ayurvedic medicine that involves massage of the body with large amounts of warm oil to heal and detoxify body, mind and spirit. The oil can be pre-medicated with herbs blended to your Dosha type for specific conditions.
Snehan is the application of oil to the body externally and/or internally. From basic massage to more complex ones, to all internal therapeutic oil treatments, all are a form of Snehan.
Though the term denotes a large spectrum of treatments, here we are referring to Snehan as a basic massage using medicinal Ayurvedic oils.
