Padaghata (Pada Ghata, where Pada means Foot and Ghata means Pressure) is an Abhyanga full body massage that uses solely the feet to give the massage instead of using the hands and arms.

The receiver typically lies on a mat on the floor. The therapist holds onto a rope or bars to keep balance while giving the massage with his or her feet. There are obvious similarities with Keralite Chavutti Thirumal Barefoot Massage.

A Padaghata treatment with the feet is stronger than an Abhyanga Oil Massage given with the hands, and especially suitable for deep muscle and joint relaxation. Those with longstanding back pains can optimally benefit from this treatment.
