Pizhichil is considered as one of the most effective treatments in Vathavyadhi. The word ‘Pizhichil’ literally means squeezing. It is a type of Sarvanga Dhara.
The patient is made to lie on a specially designed wooden table and then oil is applied on the head and body. Subsequently pieces of cotton cloth dipped in lukewarm medicated oil are squeezed over the patient’s body. Our therapists ensure that the oil is spread appropriately over the whole body. The body is then massaged in a rhythmic and synchronized manner. The commonly observed duration of this treatment is one and a half hour, which may be varied depending on the condition sought to be treated.
Pizhichil is carried out employing seven positions. These include sitting, lying on the back, lying on the right side, lying on the left side, lying on the stomach, lying on the back and sitting once again. This treatment is very effective against rheumatic diseases like arthritis, joint stiffness, hemiplegia, paraplegia etc.
