Navarakizhi is a unique and deeply beneficial treatment which employs medicated herbal rice to nourish and strengthen the body.
The special Navara rice is blended in milk and herbs and then slowly cooked. The resulting fragrant mixture is then contained in small linen bags or potlis.
Navarakizhi is a two-step process - first specially selected oils are applied all over the body, after which the rice bags are massaged into the body, with extra focus in areas where marma (nerve points) reside.
This procedure is highly rejuvenating and nourishing, and strengthens the patient’s body to bear the stresses and strains of a busy lifestyle. It is extremely effective against rheumatism, joint and muscle pains, back pains (e.g. sciatica, slipped discs), high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels. It enhances physical consistency, strengthens the nervous system, nourishes the tissues and improves the overall appearance of the skin.
Navarakizhi therapy is largely employed in the treatment of neurological disorders, paralysis, chronic rheumatism, arthritis, malnutrition of limbs and recovery from broken bones or stroke.
