Kayasekam (Pizhichil)

This is the ‘king’ among traditional therapies of Kerala. It is a therapeutic process in which lukewarm medicated oil is poured all over the body in a uniform rhythmic way continuously in a specific direction for 45 to 60 minutes. Enormous amount of medicated oil is used in this therapy along with simultaneous gentle massages for 45 to 60 minutes daily for 7 to 21 days. This treatment protects the body from illnesses and builds up immunity for a healthy life. It is very useful for rheumatic diseases, arthritis, paralysis, sexual weakness, neurological disorders, high blood pressure, nervous weakness and helps to arrest the ageing process.
