The Kalarippayattu massage is given using warm therapeutic oils on the whole body,
according to the individuals’needs. The oil is applied literally almost everywhere.
Massage is immune boosting, the lubrication has fantastic health benefits.
The joints get fed, the skin, the bones nourished and strengthened. As it is a lymphatic
massage, blood circulation is improved, toxins move out of the tissues, special herbs
support your body and mind helping articulations, easing pains, tension, inflammations,
stress anxiety, insomnia, etc… In Sanskrit the word oil, sneha, means LOVE. Oil has the same
properties as love: thick, grounding, nourishing, protecting, lubricating, giving energy and
well being… in Ayurveda lots of warm oil is used generously.
Massage stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system: you can relax deeply, letting go of
anchored fears, attachments, and energy flow can happen for healing powers to do their
wonderful job (homeostasis).
To receive caring holistic touch gives one a sense of being worthy of love, free of judgment,
free of any expectation or pressure, just the feeling of the holiness, sacredness of life. And as
the Kalarippayattu touch embraces the whole body-soul complex, its like the joy of a baby,
cared for, touched, in its totality, loved just for it being, and the awe of life through it!
