Pizhichil is an excellent remedy for best relaxation in ayurveda. The treatment is also beneficial for various ailments such as nervous weakness, sexual weakness, hypertension, Vata imbalances, and limbs emaciation.
Pizhichil is a treatment which comprises a combination of  heat treatment and oil massage. The therapy has been used since ancient times as kings used to take this treatment. Hence, the treatment is also called ‘Treatment for aristocrats’.

It is a gentle and synchronized body massage, which is done with constant flow of warm herbal oil.
This ayurvedic treatment involves a oil massage over body by a cloth soaked in oil. During Pizhichil therapy, a person undergoing the treatment, is made to sit on a chair specially made for this therapy.
Medicinal oils are then applied over the body and head. Shirodhara is also performed when needed during the therapy.
On the forehead, a cloth is tied to prevent oil from getting into the eyes. Through squeezing a clean cloth dipped in oil, the warm medicinal oil is poured over the body in a continually flowing single stream. Whole process occurs in a sitting position, but when Shirodhara takes place, then only the person is made to lie down.
