Traditional Indian medicine places utmost importance on the food we eat. Good food will lead to a healthy body, which in turn will lead to a healthy mind

At Kalariyil Ashram, this is practiced by growing our own food in a sustainable organic way. We grow our own rice, vegetables, fruits, coconuts, and even have our own organic dairy-farm.

Treatment for Revival: a 7-10 Day Course – “Tapa Abhyavakaranam”

Treatment is tailor made for each patient and will be performed by highly experienced practitioners.

Abhyanga is a full body oil massage designed to stimulate the circulatory, nervous and lymphatic systems. Inflammatory blocks are located and corrected thus restoring the natural equilibrium of the body. Abhyanga also has a healing, cleansing and revitalizing effect on the body which improves flexibility and realigns both the joints and the spine.

 Anga Dhara; Litres of warm oil are poured over the body while a gentle massage is performed. The body becomes fully relaxed and all tension and stiffness is eased. The effect of the warm oil is the opening of the pores of the skin and the relaxation of the muscular tissues. This facilitates the body’s releasing of accumulated toxins which are simultaneously removed by the flow of oil.

 Shiro Dhara, also known as a head bath, is a gentle and powerful treatment. Warm oil is poured from a hanging pot onto the forehead and scalp which are massaged gently. Many toxins are released from the scalp and are carried away by the flow of the oil. This treatment is so relaxing it often sends people into a deep sleep. They awake feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

Kizhi is a bundle of medicinal herbs which is heated in oil and applied to the body. The hot oil activates the medicine within the Kizhi, and the heat stimulates and relaxes the body. Kizhi’s are used to remove inflammatory blocks, and improve circulation and flexibility in joints and muscles.
