Pizhichil or Thaila Dhara is the combination of two classical treatments, Snehana (oleation) and Swedana (sudation). It is one of the parts of panchakarma treatment in ayurveda.
A gentle, synchronized massage of up and down is carried out on all parts of the body other than the head are subjected to this treatment. The procedure requires three trained therapist – one for warming the oil and two others for pouring the warm medicated oil over the whole body or affected area. It is administered in seven standard positions, so that no area of the body is left uncovered.
Cloth dipped in lukewarm medicated oil is squeezed over the patient’s body uniformly and then the oil rubbed smoothly over the body of the patient by masseurs on either side.
The session may take 1 hour including continuous oil pouring over the body, then rubbing and stimulating the skin using hands and special cotton cloths. Special caution has to be taken for the patient’s head should not get sweat during the treatment. A cloth is tied over the forehead of the therapy taken to prevent oil from getting into the eyes.
