In Ayurveda, there are treatments which can do miracles and Pizhichil is one such therapy with amazing benefits and that is why it is one of the most-sought-after Ayurvedic treatment.
What is Pizhichil Therapy?
Known with various names, such as Kaya Seka, Taila Seka, and even Sarvanga Sneha, Pizhichil Therapy comes from the Ayurvedic term Pizhichil which means squeezing. That is why in this treatment medicated oil dipped in a cloth is squeezed during the massage therapy offering relaxation to your body.
What is the procedure of Pizhichil Therapy?
Snehana (oleation) and Swedana (sudation) are the two traditional Ayurvedic treatments which are used in this therapy. Firstly, in this therapy that offers exemplary benefits, your whole body is bathed in streams of medicated oil, which is lukewarm with soft massage. Approximately three to four liters of medicated oil is used in Pizhichil Therapy to relax your body.
That is why patients with rheumatic disease, sexual weakness, arthritis, paralysis, etc. experience relief from their troubles. Furthermore, this treatment builds up your immunity and helps you in resolving your neurological disorders and the problem of blood pressure.
Both the classical steps - Snehana in which oil massage is done and Swedana, which includes fomentation, sweat-inducing, and sudation, are executed by a trained Ayurvedic physician for a fixed duration of time with herbal oils so that no complications occur as this therapy also involves massage to enhance the advantages of the therapy, such as healing fractured bones, improving skin quality, relieving you from stress, paralysis, etc.
If you are also suffering from any of the aforementioned problems then it is time to seek Ayurvedic Pizhichil treatment as it helps in keeping all your health issues at bay. You just need to make sure that you select the right place for this treatment as wrong handling of the therapy can lead to some severe health-related problems that can cause great damage to your body.
