Elakizhi Treatment

Elakizhi, where Ela means leaf and Kizhi means bundle, is a massage treatment, hailing from the ancient traditions of Ayurveda, in which medicinal leaves are used totackle arthritis, joint pain, muscle cramps and stress. This treatment is specially recommended for inflammatory conditions of bones & joints, chronic back pain, spondylitis and sports injuries.

Finely crushed herbal leaves and other medicated powders are warmed in medicated oil and bundled into boluses in cotton cloth. These bundles are steamed and the fomentation is patted rhythmically all over the body for sedation for about 45- 60 minutes depending on the condition. The technique alleviates sore muscles and joints and is effective in various types of arthritis, frozen shoulder, sports injuries and for all other spastic and inflammatory conditions etc. It enhances peripheral blood circulation, cleanses the channels of circulation and expels toxins through the sweat.
