Abstract

In today’s world mental disorders are increasing due to rapid modernization of world, negative lifestyle factors, stress problems etc. In Ayurveda we call these mental disorders as Manovikaras. Manas plays very important role in these Manas Vikaras. The management of these mental disorders demand modification of behavioural habits which helps to maintain Mansik Swasthya. Ayurveda has given daily regimen in a very specific way i.e., Dinacharya. By following proper Dinacharya we can fight very effectively with factors like negative lifestyle, stress, anxiety, depression. This ultimately helps us to stay away from mental disorders. Abhyanga is a one of the Karmas in Dinacharya. Abhyanga is nothing but the application of oil on skin. Abhyanga helps to relax the body and mind. As we know, Abhyanga relaxes mind but how application of oil or medicated drugs on skin help to resolve our mental disorders is very mysterious. Here we made an effort to elaborate and connect the point from Samhitas to get exact action of Abhyanga in Manas Rogas.
