What is Ayurveda?

This ancient science originated almost 5000 years ago in India. Ayurveda is literally defined as the knowledge of life.

Why is it Important?

At Trimed, the various Ayurvedic interventions- pizhichil, kizhi, abhyangam, shirodhara are used to treat conditions like arthritis, spondylosis, weight disorders, insomnia, stroke, Parkinson's disease, dementia and a host of other conditions. These modalities in conjunction with other appropriate therapy methods helps restore optimum quality of life to people.

How does it work?

Pizhichil, referring to the synchronised pouring of warm medicated oil and gently massaging it in the affected areas, improves mobility and flexibility of joints and in turn reduces pain and inflammation in the affected areas.


Referring to the gradual flow of medicated oil on the forehead, Shirodhara helps reduce symptoms of stress, anxiety, depression, insomnia and other disorders.
