  • The roots are cut into small pieces and placed in a pot of water. The mixture is boiled until the amount is reduced to1/4 from the original. The liquid is then strained to remove the solid and obtain a decoction of Bala Quat (Sida Cordifolia Root Decoction)
  • This decoction is divided into 2 equal parts. Milk and rice are added to one part of it and the mixture is allowed to boil. Once the rice is cooked well, the mixture is ground until soft

  • Navarakishi is performed by four therapists so that the treatment can be kept in sync on both sides of the patient. Boluses immersed in enriched milk rub on both sides of the patient's body, rhythmically
  • The application is done in a circular motion clockwise and should cover all joints of the body. The massage starts from the nape of the neck to the lower back and from the hips to the legs. Boluses are replaced by warm ones after they have lowered their temperature. This method should be carried out throughout the recommended time / at least about an hour / without interruption
