The chest is the region of the body located between the neck and the abdominals.  This anatomical region helps protect some of the major internal organs of the body, such as the heart and lungs

When the treatment procedure starts the first organ which will be in contact with the medicine is the skin, Skin is a large, highly complex organ and structurally integrated organ system and the component of the skin are cutaneous membrane associated with hairs, nails and exocrine glands, the cutaneous membrane has two components, superficial epithelium or epidermis and the underlying connective tissue of the dermis.

The Quality of the skin is supported by an extensive network of blood vessels, and sensory receptors that monitor touch, pressure, temperature and pain Our body is made up of different types of cells and each cell membrane is made up of Phospholipids, lipid soluble substances can easily cross the cell membrane because of this the base of the medicine which we use is in lipid form (medicated oils)

When the procedure starts, medicated oil cross the cell membrane through the skin, and the functions of phospholipids will increase and act as a carrier for various cellular elements or impurities which are responsible for the formation of diseases,

The Luke warm oil will increase the temperature to more than 2 to 3c in the localized area, by which vasodilatation will happen and the blood circulation will increase and necessary oxygen and nutrition materials are supplied and the free radicals which is responsible for the disease will be removed and helps to remove the congestion of the lungs and reduces the breathlessness.

This therapy produces sedative effect because of the pharmacological action of the used medicine like Anti-inflammatory action, Analgesic action, muscle relaxant, Decongestant activity etc. and acts as a counter irritant which is the thermal stimulus and may affect the pain sensation.

It also induces muscles relaxation and increases the efficiency of muscle action as the increased blood supply ensures the optimum condition for muscle contraction because of its therapeutic action of the medicine and procedure.
