Purvakarma therapies help to mobilize and liquefy toxins (ama) from the tissues and to move it out towards the intestines. There are two steps
Internal Oelation (Abyantar snehana )- With ghee or medicated oil, helps loosen ama (toxins) and move it from deeper tissues into the gastrointestinal tract.
External oleation (Abhyanga / bahya snehana) – With vigorous massage over the whole body with medicated oils. The choice of oils depends on the particular needs and dosic imbalance of the individual.
