Uzhichil

Uzhichil Ayurveda Treatment is a complete Kalari massage system which rejuvenates the nervous and muscular system of the body and stimulates blood circulation. This method of treatment is a result of the blend of Dhanurveda and Ayurveda. Uzhichil treatment is the systematic application of pressure on the muscles according to their structure, at the same time stimulating the nervous system and the circulatory system. This is done by oiling and massaging the various parts of the body. The practice was primarily developed for preparing healthy body for Kalarippayat training. It can also enhance the general fitness of an average man. The oil used for Uzhichil treatment depends upon the prakrutham or physical nature of the person. In general cases, specially prepared Mukkoott oil is used. In Uzhichil the masseur has to have exact knowledge of the vital spots (called marmas in Ayurveda) and the energetic channels of the human body (called nadis in Ayurveda).Uzhichil is of two types: Kaiuzhichil - using hands, and Chavuttiuzhichil - using feet. Kaiuzhichil ayurveda treatment is applied on children, old and people of light build while Chavuttiuzhichil treatment is used to treat young and healthy persons. Uzhichil is always done so as to minimize the pressure on the heart and on the nerves to the heart. This is achieved by massaging from the waist downwards and upwards to the upper parts of the body. The pressure and the force of the massage is increased day by day till the 4th and then reduced so as to reach the minimum again on the 7th day. The massage is also done for the face and the head.It is a highly effective treatment method for even spondylitis and back pain and as a supplementary form of treatment which increases vitality and strength. By stimulating the normal energy flow in the body it increases mental sharpness. During the treatment period the patient is required to strictly follow the instructions of the Gurukkal especially in matters of food.
