Pizzichili: The Ultimate Indulgence!

Pizzichili: The Ultimate Indulgence!

By Sandy Zimmerman

In ancient India, the Maharajas were pampered with spectacular

Ayurvedic wellness treatments but don’t be jealous.

Today these wondrous treatments are NOT ONLY for Maharajas,

they are being enjoyed at the Maharishi Ayurveda Health Center,

just one hour from Boston.

Pizzichili, one of their unbelievably comforting treatments, is

known as the Royal Treatment and that is the perfect name for it!

The “Wet table” is similar to a Vichy Treatment but without all of

the showers above you.

The two therapists (Ayurvedic technicians) do it all!

It is the personal attention that makes all of their spa

treatments so different!

The technicians entered the treatment room holding glass

pitchers of a specially prepared blend of warm herbalized oil.

With one technician

on each side, they

slowly poured the oil

simultaneously in

perfect harmony as

though they were one


How could the two be so in tune with each other, their

movements synchronized so well?

After I am practically swimming in a warm bath of oil, the table is

a little slippery as I turn each way to let the technicians reach the

areas of my body.

They also used a hose to apply the warm oil for an entirely

different feeling.

The two women spend so much time with a constant flow of oil

for this 90 minute treatment!

Pizzichili is considered a deep massage although it does not hurt


The technicians do not poke and probe your body.

This is a gentle massage with warm oil penetrating deep inside the

skin to balance the body and rid you of the toxins.

The gentle massage includes “marma points” – similar to the

pressure points in reflexology, acupuncture and acupressure.  

Clients choose whether they decide for

themselves which spa treatments they wish or have a

consultation with the Vaidya, an Eastern

Ayurvedic medical practitioner from India, to

recommend a special preparation of warm blended herb oil just

for their medical imbalances.

PIZZICHILI: The Ultimate Indulgence

I enjoyed the Pizzichili treatment so much and began

to experience a calm carefree feeling.

Hope that wonderful feeling can last a while after

returning to Las Vegas.

Forget about business and free your mind of

annoyances, try the

ultimate indulgences at the Maharishi Ayurveda

Health Center,

679 George Hill Road, Lancaster, MA., just one

hour from Boston.

For information, call (877)-890-8600.

(They prepare all the oils for the                  treatments in the Oil Kitchen.)

These 5,000 year old wellness treatments together

with healthy eating routines and exercise are all

combined in the Maharishi program.

It is important to try to have these principals

in mind to be able to

keep your mind and body in balance.

The Vaidya advises, "Everybody has a rest cycle.

This is the time the energy and attention of the

person can focus

on internal balancing and healing.

Making the most of this time is the foundation of

good health."

Eight hours of sleep, taken at different times of

the day, does not

create the same level of rest and rejuvenation.

The greatest benefits of sleep comes if we go to bed

before 10 pm,

then we are sleeping during the time the metabolism

cleans the

body of toxins and impurities.

Avoid eating, reading, or watching television at


Pleasant relaxing activity is ideal for the evening.

Strenuous or exciting mental and/or physical activity

in the evening could make it more difficult to fall


An evening walk is recommended.

Not only does it assist the body

in digestion, it also allows the body to absorb the

deeply restful qualities outdoors and helps promote

a good night's sleep.
