Ayurveda , one of the ancient traditional medicines of India, believes that the body is governed by three fundamental principles - Vata, Pita and Kapha. An imbalance of these causes illness. Ayurvedic treatment helps restore this balance without side effects.

The Ayurveda Therapies include
PIZHICHIL - In this therapeutic process, lukewarm herbal oils are applied all over the body by two or four trained therapists in a special rhythmic way. This is done continuously for about 60 to 90 minutes per day for a period of 7 to 21 days. This treatment is very useful for rheumatic diseases like arthritis, paralysis, hemiplegia, paralysis-agitanus, weakness and nervous disorders.

NJAVARAKIZHI - It is a course by which the whole body or any specific part of the body is made to perspire by the external application of certain medicated puddings. These healing puddings are in the form of boluses tied up in muslin bag. Two or four therapists apply this for about 60 to 90 minutes per day for a period of 14 days. This treatment is beneficial for all types of rheumatism, joint pain, emaciation of limbs, high blood pressure, cholesterol and certain kinds of skin diseases.
