Kalari massage is definitely not a relaxing massage, and it is more correct to call it a healing procedure. Initially, Kalari massage was intended for the preparation and faster recovery of Kalaripayatta fighters. Kalaripayattu is an ancient Indian martial art distributed in the South Indian province of Kerala, and it originated 5,000 years ago.

Now Kalari is mainly used by athletes and is often referred to as Indian sports massage. After Kalari massage, the body acquires great stamina, flexibility and is recharged with energy. Kalari massage is useful for people beginning yoga, dancers, sportsmen/women, athletes and just people with large muscle mass, for whom a regular hand massage is not very effective. This massage is very helpful for joint pain, as it eliminates muscle clamps and simply improves the general condition of the body.
