This is a special type of Kerala Ayurveda Therapy – Swedana Chikitsa (fomentation) Kizhi therapy is very useful to alleviate pain in the joints, muscles etc. First we prep the imbalanced body part with gentle herbal oil massage and marma therapy. Then, a cotton poultice is prepared and filled with herbal powder. This powder is made specifically for your needs, so the herbs used will depend on the underlying condition for which this treatment is recommended. This poultice is then warmed and applied to the body part needing treatment.
This Ayurvedic therapy opens up the dermal pores and brings in medicinal heat to the muscles and joints, inducing pain relief and relaxation. This treatment can be added on to an Abhyanga massage. This service is only offered as a treatment under the guidance of our Vaidya and first requires an Ayurvedic consultation.
