Sthanik Abhyanga and Swedana constitute a comprehensive Ayurvedic therapy involving localized oil massage (Abhyanga) followed by steam therapy (Swedana) focused on specific areas of the body. In Sthanik Abhyanga, warm medicated oils are meticulously massaged onto targeted areas, aiming to alleviate tension, improve circulation, and nourish tissues. Following Abhyanga, Swedana involves subjecting the treated area to steam, which further enhances absorption of the therapeutic oils and promotes detoxification. Together, these therapies deeply penetrate tissues, alleviate pain, reduce stiffness, and promote overall relaxation and rejuvenation, making them integral components of holistic healing practices in Ayurveda.
