Traditional Indian Medicine

Originating in India, Ayurveda is one of the oldest, most comprehensive health systems in the world. While Ayurveda provides a vast guide of practical advice and wisdom on almost every aspect of your health, Kalari Ayurveda Centre specialise in its use for pain and injury management.

Kalari Chikitsa

Traditional Indian Sports Medicine

Kalari Chikitsa is an ancient system of musculoskeletal treatments. Originating in Kerala in Southern India, Kalari Chikitsa was developed to benefit the warriors of Kalaripayattu. The techniques that were used to treat the ancient warriors are also highly effective in the treatment of modern day aches, pains and injuries.

Kalaripayattu develops the body and mind through a powerful flowing practice. It is a comprehensive system that was originally designed to create an expert warrior. Classes are available at our Brisbane school, Australian School of Kalaripayattu.
