Performed with therapists feet. Chavutti Thirumal literally means ‘massage by foot pressure’ whilst balancing on the other foot and holding onto the rope overhead. It is a thorough and deep treatment which includes long strokes from hand to foot to ‘rub and iron' out your body. A smaller, focussed strokes are used to tackle particular muscles, tendons and aches. It is performed in synchronicity with clients and therapist breath for the therapeutic effect.
The myth tells that Chavutti Thirumal is based on the dance of the God Shiva, lord of destruction and creation. In fact, the treatment looks and feels a bit like a dance with rhythmical and fluid strokes on your body performed by one foot while therapist balance on the other, holding onto a rope overhead.
This graceful strength mirrors that of the Kalari warriors in ancient times, who created and perfected this system of bodywork over thousands of years.
