Massage is done in an upward direction i.e. from below upwards (opposite to thetraditional or conventional massage as done in Abhyanga in which strokes are given from above downwards).

This means to tell that when Udwarthana is done, we are massaging in such a way that we are elevating the hairsf rom a ‘downward pointing direction’ and push them so as to change their direction and point upwards (the hairs come back to their normal position after the procedure is completed).
