About Njavarakizhi

Njavarakizhi is the most refreshing and rejuvenating massage therapy that has been widely practiced since ancient times. The term Njavara refers to an indigenous variety of rice having medicinal properties grown in Kerala. The kizhi stands for bolus. Hence, Njavarakizhi is a unique Ayurveda massage therapy in which certain medicinal drugs with the Njavara rice pudding tied in a muslin cloth are applied to the affected part.

The patient is allowed to sleep on the massage table to make themselves relax. Then, rice in the form of a pudding is made as boluses in a thin muslin cloth and can be applied to the affected part or whole body. During the procedure, Kizhi is dipped in warm decoction and the Ayurveda practitioner will rub it against the body or the affected part of the body. Then, the Kizhi is dipped into mixed warm milk and herbal decoctions to cool down the body. Finally, the rice in the form of pudding that gets stuck to the body is removed by coconut leaves. Also, a herbal oil massage is recommended to relax for half an hour.

Njavarakizhi massage therapy can be beneficial for people who suffer from Sciatica, Scoliosis, Kyphosis, Perthes disease, Cervical myelopathy, Hemiplegia Arthritis, and muscle pain, Cervical Spondylosis, Whiplash, etc.
