Ayurvedic Therapies


This total body massage with herbal oils tones the skin, rejuvenates and strengthens all the tissues so as to achieve ideal health and longevity. This increases primary vitality (Ojas) and resistance. It is also beneficial to the eyes and gives sound sleep and is also a cure for rheumatism. Abhyangam keeps your body fit, control fat, reduces sagging and makes the skin younger, reduces stress and increases circulation when massaged with medicated oils.


A specialised treatment involving squeezing a cloth soaked in oil over the body. During this treatment, the patient is made to sit on the droni and then medicated oils are administered over the body and the head. Four therapists, two on either side of the patient aid in this process, especially if Dhara treatment is undertaken simultaneously. A cloth is tied over the patient’s forehead to prevent the oil from getting into the eyes. The warm medicated oil is then poured in a continually flowing single stream, squeezing a clean cloth dipped in oil over the body. The treatment starts and ends with the patient in a sitting position. In the duration in between, the patient is made to lie flat. As is the case with Dhara, the duration and bathing process varies with each patient. Pizhichil oil therapy helps alleviate skeletal and muscular diseases, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, lumbago, sciatica, hemiplegia, neuropathy, and more. It is very important to note however, that because Ayurveda is tailor-made to suit each individual and the typical ailment, certain treatments might not be administered to him, as per doctor’s orders.


A treatment where the patient is made to lie on a special wooden bed (droni) after which, the medicated oil/milk/buttermilk are poured in a prescribed continuous stream on the head by the therapist, who is also assisted by two other therapists. For the oil application on the head, a wide mouthed earthen vessel with a hole at the bottom is hung about two inches from the patient's forehead. A thread hangs forth from the hole along which the oil flows. The prescribed liquid is then poured into the vessel and on the upper forehead in a steady stream. The liquid drippings are collected and the oil is poured back into the vessel. The patient is then given a warm water bath or toweled off. This treatment continues depending on the severity of each case, in order to alleviate fatigue, improve memory, restore equilibrium and is also effective in cases involving insomnia, migraine, ear nose diseases, spondilitis and paraplegia
