Chavutti Thirumal - probably the most unusual treatment anyone could ever receive!
Chavutti Thirumal is an Indian massage therapy, several thousands of years old, and literally means 'massage by foot pressure'. It is given entirely with the feet and the practitioner uses a rope for balance, with one foot on the body and one on the floor at all times. It originated alongside traditional Indian martial arts, dancing and yoga, and was developed for maintaining and improving suppleness, and treating pain and swelling caused by combat. Chavutti is equally suitable for those not involved in sport or exercise, as it is an incredibly relaxing treatment in which the whole body is deeply massaged with long sweeping strokes. Chavutti is completely holistic and pampering and leaves the client uplifted and energised aswell as treating muscle tightness and pain. This treatment is also the perfect complement to therapies such as acupuncture and osteopathy.
