This is a full body oil
massage, but it differs greatly from other forms of massage, in that, to
perform Chavutti Thirumal, the practitioner uses their bare feet to carry
out specific strokes; some are short, but generally they are long
Chavutti Thirumal, literally translated, means massage by foot pressure.
So, during a treatment the recipient lies flat on the floor - the body
cushioned by mats and towels - the limbs are placed in specific positions
to aid comfort and encourage free flow of energy, the masseur applies one
foot at a time, whilst holding on to a support rope which runs at head
level across the treatment room. This support enables the practitioner to
use their foot to travel the whole length of the body in one sweeping,
flowing stroke, working from the fingertips to the toes. This allows for a
wonderfully deep continuous movement.
Back problems respond well to this treatment, as Chavutti relieves aches and pains as it works on the muscular and the skeletal system simultaneously. It can also help alleviate mild postural problems by gently stretching and re-aligning the spine. Chavutti helps loosen tight contracted muscles, but conversely it can help tone muscles, thereby improving muscular weakness. One of the obvious benefits of working so deeply and thoroughly on the body in this way, is that it encourages an increase in oxygen to the tissues, toxin release, and gentle detoxification. Chavutti works not only on a physical level but on an emotional level, creating an overall sense of well-being.
It is advisable to book at least 3 sessions, to receive the maximum benefits of this deep treatment.
