Ayurvedic Foot Pressure Massage (Chavutty Thirummal) CHAVUTTY THIRUMMAL literally means chavutty: by foot, thirummal: massage. In using the foot the masseur has his full body weight at his command, by holding a rope. The massage originated in Kerala many years ago with the development of the martial art Kalari. It was used to remove pain and swelling after a hit or sprain, to normalise muscles, ligaments and dislocated joints and also to expedite the mending of broken bones. Subsequently it was adopted by Kathakali (dance form) students to relax and rejuvenate their muscles. It tones and loosens rigid muscles and ligaments. This massage is usually given over a ten day period to progressively relax and penetrate deeper levels, thereby completely rejuvenating tissues and stretching and loosening rigid ligaments.
