TALAPOTHICHIL (Head Treatment)

This massage needs 1 day preparation time so kindly book your appointment 1 day in advance


Talapothichil is an ancient Ayurvedic treatment that involves applying a herbal paste on the head to provide various health benefits. It is a part of the Panchakarma therapy that is commonly used in Ayurvedic medicine.

What does Talapothichil  mean?

Talapothichil is derived from two Sanskrit words "Tala" which means head and "Pothichil" which means covering with a paste. Therefore, the name "Talapothichil" literally means covering the head with a paste.

How it is done:

  • The treatment involves applying a medicated paste made from natural ingredients like amla, neem, sandalwood, turmeric, and coconut oil, to the scalp and hair. 

  • The paste is left on for a specified period of time, during which the head is wrapped with banana leaves to allow the paste to penetrate into the scalp. 

  • After the paste is removed, the head is washed with warm water.


  • Relieving stress and anxiety

  • Reducing hair fall and promoting hair growth

  • Improving the texture and quality of hair

  • Relieving migraines and headaches

  • Relieving mental fatigue and improving concentration

  • Reducing the effects of aging on the scalp and hair

  • Preventing dandruff and other scalp infections


 A typical Talapothichil treatment session lasts between 45 to 60 minutes.
