This is Snehana, or Oleation Therapy, an integral process that prepares the body to receive specialized Panchakarma treatment in Ayurveda.It involves the application of medicated oils, ghee and herbs to the body for three to seven days. This treatment is crucial as it loosens the Amam, or toxins, and Doshas in the body, thereby facilitating their expulsion during the initial stage of treatment. There are two primary types of Snehana - Bahya Snehana (External Oleation) and Abhyantara Snehana (Internal Oleation).
