Spas provide holistic treatment using diet, massages, herbs, aromatherapy, music, and meditation to regenerate balance and heal, cleanse, relax and revitalize.

Since time immemorial, Ayurveda has been India’s time tested remedial and restorative healthcare science for balancing the mind, body and spirit. Modern lifestyles, increased stress and diet, as well as lifestyle repercussions, tend to cause imbalances in the bio energetic forces in the human body which manifest into body and mind diseases. This is where Ayurvedic healing centres and spas come to the rescue and offer long lasting positive, holistic growth and rejuvenation.

Ayurveda Has A Distinctive Approach

Ayurveda is the first system of medicine to recognize the concept of individual mind/body types and firmly believes that everyone is born with their own natural balance which influences all aspects of their life, including body structure, emotional makeup and predisposition to illnesses.

How Do Ayurvedic Centres and Spas Help?

The Ayurvedic centres and Ayurveda spas offer extremely personal and wellness regime identifying a person’s ideal state of balance, offering a holistic treatment using diet, massages, herbs, aromatherapy, music, and meditation to regenerate balance and at the same time heal, cleanse, relax and also revitalize.

The Holistic Approach to Wellbeing

We can understand that the five basic elements – space, air, fire, water and earth combine to form the human body, by creating three vital doshas that govern all psycho-physiological functions in the body. When these vital forces are aggravated, the body- mind connection begins to suffer and the disease sets in. At the Ayurvedic centres and spas, the Vaidya or the Ayurvedic physician maps out a structured program of diet, exercise, meditation, according to body type to bring dosha healing (balance), restoring of energy and mental tranquillity.

Ayurveda – A Comprehensive Approach

Meditation forms a major part of the treatment that helps in experiencing inner calm and tranquillity. Today’s accelerated pace of life has led to stress, insomnia, anxiety and chronic health issues and meditation is the most direct way to experience inner silence and wellbeing.
