At Ayurmana, we offer pure and authentic treatment with the aim of rejuvenating the body and the spirit. We provide pizhichil treatment that is unique to each individual and their body type (dosha), identifying the underlying factors in the ailment. Pizhichil treatment is a combination of oil massage and heat treatments.
Pizhichil massage was mostly used by maharajas in olden days, and popularly known as the treatment for aristocrats. A gentle, synchronized massage of up and down is carried out on all parts of the body other than the head are subjected to this treatment. The patient should lay on the treatment table and two or four trained therapists perform the massage under the supervision of a physician. It is administered in seven standard positions so that no area of the body is left uncovered.
A cloth dipped in lukewarm medicated oil is squeezed over the patient’s body uniformly and then the oil rubbed smoothly over the body of the patient by masseurs on either side. The session may take 1 hour including continuous oil pouring over the body, then be rubbing and stimulating the skin using hands and special cotton cloths. Special caution has to be taken for the patient’s head should not get sweat during the treatment.
A cloth is tied over the forehead of the therapy taker to prevent oil from getting into the eyes. Pizhichil treatment is a highly rejuvenating treatment that enhances muscle tone and re-tunes the entire nervous system. Fresh medicated oil is used every day and the duration of pizhichil is decided by the Ayurveda expert after the body constitution of the individual has been determined.
