Abdul Nasir*, Gazala Fatma, Mohd. Akhtar Siddiqui and Mohd. Aftab Ahmad

ABSTRACT

Dalak (Massage) is one of the most important therapy of Regimental
therapies (it includes massage, exercise, venesection, cupping,
leeching, diaphoresis, diuresis, purging, emesis, turkish bath,
cauterization). Dalak (Massage) is a type of exercise in which surface
of body is rubbed with hands, to increase the blood circulation and
remove the waste materials from the body. Several types of Dalak
(Massage) are mentioned in unani classical literature e.g. Dalak
Layyan (Soft massage) is sedative and relaxant. Dalak Khashan (dry
and hard massage) is deobstruent and increase the blood supply.
According to Allama Nafees Dalak (Massage) is described under the
heading of exercise because it executes the same function as exercise
i.e.it disintegrates the waste product, liquify the viscid matter, produces
energy and strengthens ligament, tendons and muscles. Dalak
(Massage) are indicated by Unani physicians in chronic arthralgia, muscular weakness,
paralysis, sciatica, gout, melancholia, uterine complications, obesity, sprain, neuralgia etc. so,
it can be utilized for the purpose of restoring individual health and therapeutic purposes. The
detail of this topic will be discussed in full length paper.

Keywords: Dalak, Massage, Regimental Therapy.
