Based on the classical principle of an inherent similarity between the universal and the individual—Siddha medicine is one of the oldest medical traditions. Too often confused with ayurveda, it is a pure Dravidian system that started in southern India much before the Aryan era. Ever since the time of the legendary Sage Agastya and his 18 siddhars—the ancient propagators and practitioners of this system—Siddha knowledge has continued to percolate from master to disciple.
This timeless medical system has two branches—Siddha massage and Siddha medicine. But the treatment as a whole works on removing energy blocks from the ten vital points of prana or energy concentration. Treatment also includes 13 retrieval systems, which have cured problems like cervical spondylitis, skeleto-muscular pains, rheumatic lumbar, back pain, slip disc and even paralysis!
