Abhyanga is an Ayurvedic procedure for massaging the entire body from head to toe with herbal oils. There are many varieties of classically prepared herbal oils that are used for balancing specific doshas and many health conditions. Traditionally, the base oil is either sesame, castor, or coconut.
Abhyanga is a part of the Dinacharya daily regimen that is explained in the classical Ayurvedic textbook on ways to maintain strong health and wellbeing. Vata is the king of the doshas and is responsible for all the body's energy, movement, and nerve impulses, which manifests as breath, circulation, elimination, and the flow of thoughts. In comparison the other two doshas, pitta and kapha have much less of an impact.
Pitta, kapha, dhatus (body tissues), malas (metabolic waste) and whatever else is present in the body is ineffective without the movement instilled by vata dosha. Vata dosha is the energy behind all movement for which the body functions.
Abhyanga is the treatment that balances vata dosha. The qualities of vata dosha are dry and active and oil is the best remedy for balancing these two qualities.

Jwara is a Sanskrit word for fever and according to Ayurveda it is considered the "king of all illnesses". This is because Jwara affects not just the body but also the mind and senses. Ayurveda understands jwara as not only an increase in body temperature but is also a feeling of malaise, unease, and discomfort, and involves the deha (body), indriya (senses), and mana (mind).
