Chavutti Thirumal Course (massage with feet)

About the Course

The Chavutti Thirumal massage is a traditional form of massage, practiced during the ancient times in Kerala. It was originated primarily for soldiers involved in combat, dancers and people who were involved in a lot of strenuous work. In the present times, it is recommended for people from all walks of life, especially for those who do not get much physical activity during the day.
Students undertaking the course would learn the art of massaging by applying pressure on the body with their feet. The feet provide an even and deeper pressure on the body, as compared to the hand. They will learn and practice balancing with a rope overhead, and provide massage on specific pressure points through long, deep and effective strokes on the body.

The student will gain immense knowledge on the use of their body weight in removing stiffness and soreness from the muscles and providing suppleness to the recipient’s body, focusing on their bones and muscle alignments.
