“Snehan is Sanskrit for both oil and love. Snehana is the art of removing obstacles lodged in the body through the power of touch.”

In Ayurveda, snehan chikitsa is a form of therapy used to prepare the body for Panchakarma (Ayurvedic cleansing program) and during it. However snehan chikitsa (Massage Therapy) can be used on its own as an individual Ayurvedic treatment. It helps with a wide array of health issues as well as being a rejuvenative treatment. One of Snehan’s main benefits is that it pacifies Vata Dosha. In Ayurveda, Vata Dosha controls all functions of the body, if this Dosha is working correctly, so is the body. Thus snehan therapy greatly increases overall health because it directly treats Vata Dosha. When Vata Dosha is balanced, the person experiences clarity of mind, reduction in anxiety, and an overall sense of wellbeing.

Benefits include:

  • Regeneration of tissues
  • Removal of toxins from the tissues and the body
  • Increase in endurance and stability in the body
  • Reduces wear and tear of the joints
  • Decreases rigidity
  • Helps with injuries
  • Improves the metabolism and appearance of the skin
  • Slows ageing process
  • Improves sleep
  • Overall sense of calm and wellbeing

Snehana (Oil Massage)

This is an Ayurvedic treatment where warm medicated oil is massaged into the body.  Snehana is a very grounding and nourishing treatment because the strokes of this treatment are sequenced in a way to directly treat Vata Dosha and the Five Vayus.
The Five Vayus govern the function of Prana ( Life Force) within our body and through this intimate massage, the Vayus are invited to return to a place of balance, calm, and equilibrium.  This leaves the client feeling nourished, satiated, and refreshed.

Snehana with Vayu Diagnosis 

The Vayus are important energetic channels (similar to meridians in Chinese Medicine) which directly cross over organs in the body and correspond to the Chakras. They contain vital information about our current well being as they help with both physical and subtle activities.
For example, our ability to physically digest our food and emotionally digest our experiences is related to Samana Vayu.

While Snehana , the physical massage, will directly work on all the Vayus, Vayu Diagnosis was designed to give the client direct feedback about their unconscious patterns and blockages present in their channels, so that every Snehana becomes an opportunity for awareness and change. For Ayurveda to serve the client, it needs to hand the power back to the client so they can make simple and yet radical changes to their lives, freeing themselves from restricting patterns and behaviors. Vayu Diagnosis was designed to do just this, by first anchoring the client’s awareness to their own body and secondly, by giving the client the information needed so that the client can make their own changes to themselves, preventing the reoccurrence of patterns. The goal of Vayu Diagnosis is to empower the client in taking ownership over their body, health and lives.
