“Thala” means “head“ and “pothichil” means “pack.” The entire head is covered with medicinal paste in this treatment.
This is highly beneficial for disorders like stress, sleep disorders, multiple sclerosis, hormonal imbalance and hair growth.
- The therapist will apply a pack on the head which is made out of gooseberry, buttermilk and other herbs. The pack is then wrapped with leaves.
- You have to keep the pack on for 20 – 40 minutes depending on the condition and the type of herb used.
