Abhyanga is one of the poorvakarma of panchakarma. Abhyanga is not merely a body massage but it has strong systemic action too. It plays major role in bringing the morbid materials from tissues to gastro intestinal tract thereby aids in panchakarma to eliminate it out of the body through shodhana (purificatory measures). Thus abhyanga is part and parcel of penta bio purification.
