Legitimate & excellent Ayurvedic massage by Mr. T.C. Rajan.

I am a licensed massage therapist in the US and this was the best Ayurvedic massage I’ve received. Mr. T.C. Rajan and his wife make their own amazing herbal oils and remedies in the back. The place is kept clean. This is not the treatment that trap tourists. Highly recommend!

a great massage, strong hands, herbal bath afterwards
Dec 2019
"Want a massage?", the old (well, my age, it turns out) guy asked as we were looking in the slightly musty windows of (what turned out to be) his shop, while walking back to our hotel our first evening in Thekaddy.

we went in, and he made his pitch, and talked. he pointed to the photos on his wall of his father and grandfather. we said we'd think about it.

the next day, we went back, made an appointment for an hour later.

my wife's massage was provided by a woman, a student of Mr TC Gurukkal. i am told it was a great massage, that the masseuse had very strong hands.

my massage was by Mr Gurukkal himself (i asked him if his son, who had been in the shop, was going to take over the practice; "Please ask him and let me know what he says", was the reply, "I'm also curious to know!"). and, the massage was wonderul.

after the massage, i had (and, later, my wife also) an herbal bath (well, a "bucket bath", where you pour water on yourself).

all in all, a great experience which had us wondering, "hmm, i wonder if we could maybe come back to Thekkady next year, stay a few more days..."

Very very bad experience
May 2019 • Couples
The place is really dirty and I was freezing during the massage. Shouldn't be like this. The massage itself was mediocre, definitely worse than expected. The person who did it was either asking nonstop: "Good massage? Will you bring me more clients?" or replying his phone. Relax in silence was never possible. To dry myself I received a newspaper and the shower was just a bucket. Awful. The price was twice higher then in a good hotel, where they did great massage in a perfect clean room. So, I consider it as a rip off.

Great treatments

Rajaan Gurukkal is a Kalari martial arts master and an amazing therapist. Being a massage therapist myself, trust me, I know. He will palpate and feel body imbalances and has the knowledge, skills and experience to help. Massages are intense, not painful though, and are quite an experience. Highly recommended

An exceptional massage combined with health diagnosis.
Dec 2018 • Couples
An exceptional massage combining with body diagnosis.
I entered the clinic of T.C. Rajan by chance and it took me only few seconds to understand that this place is different. Me and my wife took the full body treatment and we enjoyed it very much. During the massage, TC detected three out of four known health problems that I have. We repeated the treatment the day after and in some painful points I felt a small relief. T.C. claims that if we will come to a three weeks treatment, our health problems will be solved. I don't think we will accept this invitation, but maybe it is our problem.
All in all that experience was fantastic and we strongly recommend it when visiting Kumily.
