Happy New Year everyone! Finally back to work practicing my treatments here in Boston. Here is a recap on the Manja Kizhi . I worked on a client this past weekend who has suffered from chronic shoulder/neck pain. Manja Kizhi is an effective treatment for the management of severe pain and swelling due to diseases like gout, arthritis etc. There are many analgesic herbs that are typically known for their analgesic properties of giving relief from joint pains like those felt in arthritis, neck and back pain, or tendonitis. In fact, these therapeutic herbs are anti- inflammatory herbs and treat the pain conditions that result from inflammation of joints. Prior to this treatment an oil massage "Abhyanga" is done.
