Njavara Kizhi is a unique healing procedure that has been practiced by Ayurvedic doctors in Kerala for hundreds of years. This treatment can be said to have a truly magical healing effect – it strengthens the immune system, energizes muscles and maintains muscle tone, acting as a gentle exfoliation, improves skin and gives it shine, lowers blood pressure, and has many other beneficial health effects.
For the procedure, a special type of Njavara rice is used, known for its nutritional and medicinal value. Rice is cooked in milk and herbal decoction according to a special technique, and special ingredients are added, which the doctor selects individually for each patient in accordance with his constitution and the state of the body. Therefore, before using this procedure, it is necessary to consult our doctor.
The resulting mixture is wrapped in muslin cloth, forming small bags. Healing oil is generously applied to the body and head. Then the body is massaged with warm bags, from time to time, warming them up in a mixture of warm milk and herbal decoction as they cool down. During the massage, profuse perspiration occurs, which has a beneficial effect on the body. The procedure is performed in seven different positions. At the end of the procedure, the rice paste adhered to the body is removed. After that, a light massage with warm medicated oil is done again.
On the recommendation of a doctor, there may be another variation of this procedure. Instead of tying the cooked rice in bags, it is ground into a paste and massaged all over the body (excluding the head and face). This is especially useful for children and the elderly.
This procedure can be done between 9:00 and 17:00. Any other time is not recommended.
