Thalapothichil is a special procedure of application of medicated paste on the head. Thalapothichil is from Malayalam, where thala refers to head and pothichil is covering. It is the traditional Ayurveda treatment of Kerala which is very effective in various psychosomatic disorders. The person is made to sit in an easy position. A gentle oil massage is given to head with specific medicated oil.

An herbal paste is freshly prepared and applied over the scalp in a layer, leaving a small central portion. Medicated oil is filled in this groove. The paste is then covered with leaves (plantain or lotus leaf) and cloth leaving the groove open. At the end of the procedure the paste is removed; a gentle head massage is given.
