The process of anointing the body from head to toe with warm oil is one of the most comforting and soothing treatments you can give to your body. Oiling of the body should be done daily according to Ayurveda and it can be done by anyone. There are also experienced masseurs who can perform a wide variety of oil massages including face massage, head massage and whole body massage (Abhyanga).
