This is an important therapeutic massage in Ayurveda where along with gentle massage luke-warm oil is made to fall in a continuous stream onto the body for a specified period of time. Cloth pieces dipped in oil is squeezed to drip in a constant stream on the patient lying down in a special table called "droni" from an approximate height of 7-9 inches. Oil-drip and massage is maintained with the patient in seven different positions. Sekam when done on the whole body is called kayaseka or sarvanga seka. It can also be done on a particular region alone (Ekanga seka) or on the head region alone (Sira seka or urdhwanga seka).
