Chavutti Thirumal at About Balance Brighton
Chavutti Thirumal is a unique massage technique which originates amongst the Kalari martial artists in Kerala in India.
In Malayam, the local language in Kerala, Chavutti Thirumal translates as ‘massage by foot pressure’. This massage uses the feet to massage the client, with firm, sweeping, sensual strokes. The aim is to open the physical body, thereby improving circulation and releasing tension, and also clear the energetic body (the ‘nadis’ or energetic channels).
This whole-body massage is strong and invigorating yet rejuvenating and deeply relaxing. It takes place on a floor mattress and makes abundant use of oil. The client is unclothed except for a thong or cloth to preserve modesty.
