'Urichil' is a traditional treatment originating from South Indian martial arts. Warriors oiled down their bodies before battle, taking care not to overstimulate the 107 Marma points in the body. Later, masters loosened disciples' muscles using the bottoms of their feet, reducing muscle tension and risk of injury after exercise.
Urichil was used to treat injuries as well. 'Amsa Marma' was for a bad shoulder, and 'Kukundara Marma' for a hurting leg. By applying the correct pressure to a damaged area, the stagnant 'prana' (life force) would flow naturally, relieving the body of unneeded tension. ("Illustrated Marma", "Secret Marmatsubo Stimulation Yoga", etc. by Takeshi Ito) We can use Urichil to relieve tension in our bodies from our own battles too! Wild Lotus offers Urichill without oil, under the name 'Urichill Rakken'.
Wild Lotus'. "Rakken' is based on 'Rakkenho', a treatment style taught by Osho Yamauchi in Nara, Japan.
