In KALARIPAYATTU(Kalari) , which is Kerala’s own martial art , birthed a therapeutic way of massage for enhancing the stamina and flexibility of kalari practitioners which fighters performed on each other’s body using ayurveda and medicinal oils. And that, later came to be known as Kerala massage because of its vast benefits and general wellness of the mind and body.

Today, this Kerala art of performing massage and treatments to the body by a learned man has gained popularity around the globe but remains a rare practice because of limited propagators & secrecy of this Indian medicinal field of therapy.

Kizhi along with Kerala massage is performed on the patient’s body when there is a specific area of pain and discomfort caused due to seasonal changes in the geographical region. For example, during the time of winters, we may experience a sense of stiffness and blood clotting in the legs, knees, cervical, shoulders, neck or back.  In such a condition the whole body is massaged instrokes of ayurvedic oils along with a healing medicinal procedure using organically created medicine made of herbs and oils.
