Podikizhi is a relaxing Ayurvedic therapy that uses a specific herbal powder made of 12 rejuvenating herbs. This herbal powder is tied up in a pouch or a ‘kizhi’ which is then warmed up and used for the massage on various parts of the body. Our experienced Ayurveda doctors, at AR ayurveda vaidya sala in Chennai, diagnose the patient’s dosha predominance and disease before deciding upon the ingredients of the kizhi and the type of kizhi to be used in the treatment.
This revitalizing massage treatment takes about an hour. Podikizhi is an effective ayurvedic treatment for treating joint diseases such as arthritis, various neurological conditions, and for reducing weight. An abhyanga or oil body massage is commonly recommended before the Podikizhi treatment.
