But luckily, a few Ayurvedic Treatment Centers scattered over the city act like oases; peaceful and relaxing nature retreats that offer a number of de-stress treatments.

Abhyangam is either two or four handed therapy done on a Droni (a wooden bed specially made for the therapy). During the massage, the person undergoing this treatment is seated on the Droni. The masseurs stand on either side of the parson applying herbal oil on the head and massaging gently. The therapy is continued on the neck, ears, shoulders, chest, and back. The person then lies on the back and the massage is continued from shoulder to toes. During the course of the therapy the person lies on his right side, left side, stomach, and again on his back, and finally in the sitting position.
