Kizhi is a type of massage therapy used to address problems with the muscles, bones, and joints. Elakizhi is made out of two words: ela, which means leaves, and kizhi, which means bolus (potli). The method involves frying leaves in herbal oil and tying them to a linen cloth to help make the potli. The massage is done with potlis, which are natural herbal components that are considered to be quite efficient.
Elakizhi is commonly regarded as a component of the Panchakarma treatment. The thick bag is made from the leaves of the plants involved, which are claimed to have Vata-balancing powers (bolus). Elakizhi therapy has recently gained favor as a safe and efficient treatment.
