Chavutti Thirumal and Kriya Breathing

Jessica previously trained and worked as a dancer before pursuing her study of Chavutti Thirumal massage and Kriya breathing at the Institute of Yogic Culture in South India. She has been an established practitioner since 1987, and consults at Natureworks (near Selfridges, off Oxford St) in central London. Jessica is also a professional singer, and utilizes her skills by using the voice for healing. She holds a 2nd Dan in Aikido and practices at Tetsushinkan at moving

Chavutti Thirumal is a massage from Kerala in South India, developed originally for practitioners of the South Indian martial art of  Kalari. They and the Kathakali dancers have this massage to help them become more supple and flexible. It is also given to those not involved in regular physical exercise.

The full body oil massage is given with the feet, allowing long continuous strokes to be made with controlled pressure, covering all muscles and ligaments.

Chavutti Thirumal stimulates the circulatory and immune systems, relaxing the muscles and encourages energy and blood flow. In India, for the full rejuvenating effect, the massage is given on ten consecutive days or up to a week apart. One massage is also very beneficial. A session takes from one and a half to two hours.

Kriya breathing is a series of yoga breathing exercises working down through the body to cleanse and stimulate the internal organs. These powerful exercises help to bring a feeling of calmness and centering and can be used as a preparation for meditation.
