Quite naturally, one discovers less preoccupation with mental constructions about the future and experiences more of a gentle and present physicality. This state of awareness and receptivity promotes deep cellular and energetic integration of the benefits of Ayurvedic treatments. The moist qualities of monsoon also help soften and ripen the seven tissues of the body the dhatus during poorva karma, the preparatory phase of pancha karma involving snehana (oil application) and svedhana (steam treatments).
