Just like other organs, skin which is the largest organ of the body and is the first barrier for any foreign invasion, also needs special care and attention. For proper health of skin, abhyanga is mentioned in ancient ayurvedic texts. other than skin health, it is also believed to perform other important functions in body depending on various factors. In Ayurveda, abhyanga is described as a daily routine practice to be followed for healthy individuals. Since ancient times, India has accepted Abhyanga as a routine practice in infants, and is believed to increase strength, nourishes body, improves skin texture and accelerates growth, development and health of the newborn. The term Abhyanga includes application of oil or unctuous substances over either whole body or a part of it with optimum pressure and in a particular way. Abhyanga is said to be the method of gentle oil massage (oleation) all over the body followed by bath. Abhyanga in newborns is reported to improve weight gain by better thermoregulation.
