Snehana (Oleation therapy) is a part of pre-therapeutic procedure in Panchakarma. It includes external and internal oleation. In internal oleation, panchakarma expert asks for drinking a specific amount of medicated ghee or oil for a specific period. The amount of medicated ghee or oil is gradually increased on daily basis. The course of oleation therapy may take 3 to 7 days. Ayurvedic massage with medicated oils is a part of external oleation. The duration of massage may be 30 to 45minutes according to individual needs and health condition. After Ayurvedic massage, herbal steam bath is also very important.
Greeva Vasti is one of the parts of Panchakarma in Ayurveda Treatment. ‘Greeva’ refers to the neck region thus it is the procedure in which the medicated oil is retained in the neck region for a certain period of time.
Method of oil pooling: The chosen medicated oil is heated passively. Required quantity of oil (sufficient enough to fill the space within the ring of wet flour) is taken in a small bowl. The bowl is kept in the vessel filled with hot water. When the oil gets warm, the bowl is removed. Oil is poured into the compartment (space within the constructed ring of wet flour).
Recycling the oil: Care should be taken to maintain the temperature of the oil in the GreevaVasti pool. The temperature should be kept uniform throughout the procedure (until the procedure is completed). For this to happen, the oil from the pool is removed at regular intervals (leaving some oil in it i.e. oil should not be completely removed) and replaced by warm oil (on the other side, simultaneously oil is passively heated).
