The traditional Ayurvedic oil treatment where warm oil is applied to the body with gentle pressure and motions designed to encourage the oil to penetrate into the skin and deep tissues. Extra attention is given to the joints and places in the body that are most likely to become dry and undernourished. Warm oil encourages the body and mind to release tension and to become calm and grounded. Gentle motions encourage the tissues to relax and release unwanted ama (gunk) from the blood, lymph, and other tissues to create wellness, harmony, and balance. This treatment is wonderful for any dosha or constitution, but it especially balancing for Vata and the Vata time of year (fall and winter). This is not massage body work, but treatment to address specific doshic imbalances, encourage proper flow of movement in the body including (but not limited to) that of blood, lymph, and other tissues. This proper movement facilitates the elimination of ama (impurities and toxins) from the srotamsi (bodily channels). These treatments nourish the dhatus (tissues) to encourage healing and balance in the mind, body, spirit, and senses. They can be deeply calming or energizing depending on your current need. Ayurveda calls this Rasayana: individualized nourishment.
