About the Course

The ancient martial art Kalarippayatt and the classical dance  Kathakali. Chavutti Thirummal, the Keralite massage with the foot, is an inseparable part of these traditions.

This is a unique whole body massage using the feet instead of hands. The therapist holds a rope and gives massage with his feet, the feet moving in several patterns all over the client’s body.

After applying healing oils, the therapist uses body weight to work on the energy lines focusing on muscle and bone alignment. This restores elasticity and flexibility. Massage is done mainly with the instep of the foot, at times using the toes and heels.

Chavutti Thirummal is a delicate balancing act with the rope and requires tremendous  coordination, concentration and physical power.

Chavutti Thirummal is done on a firm, supportive mat on the floor.
