Thokkanam is a word framed by combining two words Thokku and Anam - Thokku means skin, Anam mean support/tones/heat. Thokkanam focuses on treating diseases caused by aggravation of Vatham, the kinetic force of the body. The humoral theory of Siddha states that Vatham is the active force responsible for the physiological functioning of Neuro muscular as well as musculo-skeletal systems. Thokkanam is also useful in diseases where Pitham, as well as Kapham is disturbed. A simple Thokkanam session removes the sedentary feeling, which is due to aggravation of Kapham.

As per the basic principles of Siddha, the meeting points of muscles, nerves, joints and skin including hair roots are places of flow of the vital energy -Vatham. A depletion of the vital energy may lead to pain, altered tone, twitching, spasticity, rigidity, numbness and neuritis.
