What is Naranga Kizhi?


Naranga Kizhi is one of the traditional Ayurvedic healing massages that is administered to provide relief from frozen joints or cervical spondolysis. A bolus or Pinda or kizhi is made out of the mixture of medicinal herbs and lemon. Wild lemons are also used sometimes while preparing the bolus. The treatment is based on fomentation or Sweda which means inducing sweat in order to treat various ailments. The boiled herbs along with lemon are tied in the bolus and heat is administered to the affected part till you sweat.

The medicinal herbs in this case are chosen on basis of their anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties so that the bolus prepared from it can prevent further soreness of joints and relieve the pain in the joints and soft tissues.

How Naranga Kizhi helps?

Naranga kizhi is mainly associated with providing relief from the stiffness of joints and other musculoskeletal pains. It also helps in the treatment of frozen shoulder, whiplash, sprained ligaments, sports injuries, lumbar spondylosis, cartilage tears and rheumatoid arthritis. You can also opt for this treatment in case of a catch or pain in the lower back or neck, sprains or muscular cramps too. Though it may not be the first choice of treatment for neurological ailments, it can be used to relieve the pain in the nerves too.

The Naranga kizhi is usually provided after a session of Abhyanga massage and takes 30-40 minutes. Naranga kizhi also pacifies the Vata and Kapha doshas and helps eliminate toxins from the body. It facilitates the smooth movement of joints and improves blood circulation too.
