But two or four-handed Abhyanga is also offered by therapists, often as a treatment from woman to woman or man to man. Abhyanga massage is usually carried out with heated vegetable oil, but tea or other substances may also be used. Abhyanga is also used in medical treatments; for example, to incorporate herbal extracts into the body.
