Thalapothichil, an Ayurvedic hair therapy method offered by Ayurlife will help you to improve your hair health. The term Thalapothichil is formed by the assembly of two words:‘Thala’ means head and ‘Pothichil’ which means covering. This is also known as Shirolepam therapy. Our head is a gathering point of numerous marma points. Application of specially prepared herbal paste in the scalp and massaging will stimulate these marma points. A calm and cool effect produced by the procedure will relieve all your stress and bring you quality sleep.

Proper counseling will be conducted for the patient in order to prepare them for therapy. The diet routines and medications to be followed will be described by the instructors. For the patients who are ready to extend maximum cooperation, Ayurlife can reward a magical change.
