At New Ideal panchakarma centre we offer pure and authentic treatment with the aim of rejuvenating the body and the spirit. We provide njavarakizhi treatment that is unique to each individual and their body type(dosha), identifying the underlying factors in the ailment.

Njavarakizhi treatment is a deeply invigorating massage that involves fomentation of the body with a bolus of cooked rice. Njavara is a particular kind of rice known for its nutritional and therapeutic value. A generous amount of medicated oil is applied to the whole body and then the body is massaged with small cotton boluses. These boluses are dipped in this regenerating mixture of cow's milk and a brewed herbal decoction.

The Njavarakizhi treatment massage is continued in seven standard postures such as sitting, lying(supine or prone position) etc. The movement of the hands during both fomentation and massage should always be downwards.


After the massage, all the linen bags are opened out and remaining pudding is taken and applied to the body of the patient and rubbed by the hands. After 5 minutes, the paste is wiped off with palm leaf scrapers. The patient is given a bath after some time.

    Owner Anitha and manager Yousaf couldn't do enough to help. Always a smile and a chat. Spotlessly clean and nicely furnished rooms-unusual in India. Kettle in room a nice touch.
