Kalari Marma Massage
What is Kalari Marma Massage?
Kalari Marma Massage is a form of massage in the Kalari Chikitsa system. Originating in Kerala in South India, Kalari Chikitsa is an ancient system of musculoskeletal treatments developed to benefit the warriors of Kalaripayattu.
Kalari Marma Massage was traditionally used by the Kalaripayattu warriors to treat and prevent their training and combat-related injuries. It was also used to treat the conditions that affected their ability to perform the martial art.
The techniques that were used to treat the ancient warriors, help a wider range of people today. Kalari Marma Massage is a highly effective form of treatment for injuries, chronic pain and movement dysfunctions.
Kalari Marma Massage utilises specialised massage techniques using warm herbalised oil. Herbal poultices (Kizhi) and marma applications are also used to enhance the treatment. Herbal medicine, herbal steam therapy (Swedana) and dietary restrictions may also be prescribed depending on your condition.
