Abhyanga therapy in Ayurvedic Clinic Singapore, Ayurlife Improves metabolism:

Sesame oil is the best oil to penetrate deep into the tissues as it has a low molecular weight. It penetrates all 7 skin layers and enters the pores in the skin and affects the whole body. Another interesting fact is that the seven layers of skin are the seven minerals or tissues of the body: plasma, red blood cells, muscle, adipose tissue, bone, nerve tissue and reproductive tissue. Every tissue has an Agni that is supposed to digest and manipulate other important metabolic processes related to that tissue. As each layer of skin absorbs the oil, the metabolism of that tissue is revived and affects the function of the tissue metabolism within the body.
