Purvakarma- Ayurveda in India – Treatment & Therapies
Panchakarma is one of the vital ayurvedic treatments for complete purification and rejuvenation of the body. But in order to prepare the body for this treatment, Purvakarma is required. It is a pre-purification measure that precedes the Panchakarma process. It involves a combination of Snehanam (oleation) and Swedhanam (fomentation) both of which helps in loosening up the body and prepared it to flush out the toxins by moving them through the gastrointestinal tract.
Snehana – Snehana involves both internal and external oleation. For external Snehana, Abhyanga oil massage is done in which the body is massaged with various Ayurvedic oils that promote the toxins to move towards the gastro-intestinal tract. There are several other benefits of the Abhyanga massage. It relieves stress and improves the functions of the nervous system. It enhances the softness and suppleness of the superficial and deep tissues. Snehana is recommended for 3 to 7 days at a stretch. Internal Snegana is done through the oral intake of ayurvedic medicated Ghee.
Swedana – Swedana or sweating is done on a daily basis for 3 to 7 days and the process follows Snehana – Abhyanga. In this process, herbal decoction infused steam in applied to the body to make it sweat and liquefy the toxins which lead to its release through the gastro-intestinal tract.
