A physical examination and Kalari treatment is also available at an additional price to those interested (places limited): These treatments include Massage, Marma treatment, Khizi and Dhara.

Kalari Chikitsa treatment is based around a specific knowledge of the subtle body and the flow of energy within it.

Kalari Nadi Massage (7-day, 700 USD)

Performed over 7 days, this treatment works to release tension in the neurological body through a series of deep massage strokes. These strokes follow the Nadis (energy meridians) of the body, rebalancing pull between the myofascial lines and restoring balance and stability to the body. This treatment is both curative and preventative and is traditionally given to all students once a year as part of their training.

Marma Therapy (7-days, 500 USD)

Acupressure is applied to vital points (Marma) in order to stimulate the subtle body and improve the flow of Prana through the joint. At the same time these techniques serve to release chronic tension from the musculoskeletal system, allowing it to return to a more harmonious state. These are precise techniques and are available from only a handful of therapists outside of India.

Khizi (7-days, 700 USD)

Here a herbal compress is used together with hot oil to relieve chronic muscle spasm or joint inflammation. The oil acts as a conduit to send the medicines inside the compress deep into the body's tissues, bringing lasting relief to joint and muscle pain. The heat encourages the body to sweat and rid itself of toxins contained within. This can be a very affective treatment for Arthritis, Nerve impingement and other Inflammatory conditions.

Dhara (7-days, 350 USD)

Literally translated as 'pouring', Dhara involves the use of medicated fluid being poured over painful joints. It's effect is to calm the nervous system in and around that area. This can be a very effective treatment for joint pain and conditions related to oversensitivity.

PLEASE NOTE: All treatments start with a face-to-face consultation with Adam Phillips; our senior instructor with over 20 years experience in Kalari Treatment. A thorough examination is made to determine the cause of any symptoms you are having. This will consist of a in person interview followed by a physical assessment involving muscle, nerve and joint testing. Following this consultation you may be referred onto Dr. Caoru Osanai for further medical input should it be required.
