    Treatment for a King

    Considered the ultimate treatment for a King in ancient India, Shastika Shali or Navarakhizhi in Malayalam, is one of the most important svedana sweat? inducing treatments used in Ayurvedic medicine.

    To start the treatment warm medicinal oil is applied over the body, helping you sink into relaxation. Next you will be massaged with heated boluses prepared with a mixture of Ayurvedic herbs ? and medicinal rice ? cooked to form a pudding like texture. The bundles are delicately dipped in a decoction of herbs and cows milk ? constantly warmed to induce deep nourishment to the muscles ?? and nerve endings. To finish the treatment the bundles are opened and the mixture is massaged over your body providing a sense of calm and grounding. Traditionally in India the mixture would then be removed with banana leaves.

    The combination of massage, heat ☀️ and pressure are applied to improve circulation, help remove stiffness of the joints and provide cleansing for the bodily channels.

    It is is useful in treating chronic Vata diseases including insomnia ? multiple sclerosis, paralysis, muscle weakness or muscle stiffness, diseases of the joints such as osteoarthritis and other degenerative conditions. It is also done as a rejuvenation and anti-ageing treatment for a healthy individual as it delays the process of ageing, premature greying of the hair, hair fall and the appearance of wrinkles.

    It is important to note that this treatment is not for everyone and should only be avoided if you suffer from heart ? disease, asthma ? or fever.
