The massage along with steam bath produces great results. The effects are compounded since the heat and steam allow the medicated oils to seep into the body and nourish them from the inside.
The patient is laid on a massaging table and warm medicated oils selected and prepared according to his/her Dosha type, is applied on him. A gentle systematic massage is done on the whole body and fundamentally more on the required body parts by trained therapists, for around 30 to 60 minutes depending on the body type.
After the therapy the patient is said to take complete rest for some time for the oil to be absorbed in the body. Light digestible diet would be advised after the bath.
