Considered to be the oldest healing science, Ayurveda is a holistic approach to health that is designed to help people live long, healthy, and well-balanced lives. Ayurveda is a branch of one of the Vedas, Atharva Veda. The term Ayurveda is taken from the Sanskrit words ayus, meaning life or lifespan, and veda, meaning knowledge. It has been practiced in India for at least 5,000 years and in recent years has started becoming popular in Western and South East Asian cultures as well.
Ayurveda sees the human body as a blend of the five basic elements: Sky, Water, Earth, Air and Fire combined in such a way so as to control all the processes of health and disease. It is regulated by the three bio-regulating principles of thridoshas (body’s three systems, or doshas) nervous (Vata), the venous (Pitta) and the arterial (Kapha). All people have vata, pitta, and kapha, but usually 1 or 2 are dominant in a given individual. According to Ayurveda, illness arises when these doshas, are out of balance. Many factors such as stress, an unhealthy diet, the weather etc. can disturb the dosha balance. Such disturbances are expressed in the body as disease. To balance the three systems, Ayurvedic physicians primarily prescribe herbal medicines and massage with oil. Additional healing methods can include yoga, sweat baths, meditation, nasal cleansing etc.
The constitutional/individualised approach is the essence of the Ayurvedic health system. It is effective, safe and holistic in its approach.
The treatments may be followed (optional) by a bath in warm water.
Ayurvedic massages are generally regarded as more luxurious and exotic than other massages as most use a synergistic combination of oils classically prepared from herbal extracts.
It involves rubbing of the skin with herbalised oil (usually sesame oil is the base) to increase blood circulation and drawing toxins out of the body through the skin. It is a very relaxing body massage using warm body oil appropriate for your constitution at the time of treatment. The skin is the largest organ of our body and whatever is topically applied gets absorbed by the body and enters the bloodstream. Ayurveda states "Oil is to the body as love is to the soul". Your body needs regular oleation to function properly and to be at ease. We regularly oleate our cars and other machines but not our own body! This treatment is a great opportunity to provide your body what it needs but rarely gets. You will feel rejuvenated and relaxed after this treatment.
The word Panchakarma literally means "five actions". It is a program for the body, mind and soul. Health is defined as the body being clear of toxins, the mind at peace, emotions calm and happy, wastes being efficiently eliminated and organs functioning normally. In a busy, stressful and toxic world, our physical and mental systems accumulate toxins causing deterioration of the body’s normal functions. This eventually weakens our systems, which opens the door for chronic, degenerative, and non-specific diseases to develop. These can evolve into serious specific diseases, ultimately damaging an individual’s health and wellness.
Panchakarma can help reverse these negative effects of our daily living. It is a unique, natural, holistic, health-giving series of therapeutic treatments that cleanses the body’s deep tissues of toxins, opens the subtle channels, brings life-enhancing energy and nourishment thereby increasing vitality, inner peace, confidence and well-being. This is why it is often termed as rejuvenation therapy. Panchakarma can be taken for as few as 3 consecutive days to a more common 5-day treatment and as many as 30 days.
Panchakarma therapy is performed in three stages:
Medicated oil/milk/buttermilk etc is poured continuously over the patient’s head. This goes along with a body oil application. This treatment is highly effective in insomnia, chronic headaches, ear and nose diseases, spondylitis etc.
Warm medicated oil is poured continuously on to the patient’s body. It is effective in skeletal and muscular diseases, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, lumbago, sciatica etc.
Boluses of cooked Navara rice are applied on the body. The rice is cooked in medicinal decoction and milk. The boluses are applied on the body, which has been smeared with medicinal oil. Useful for skeletal and muscular diseases, paralysis and general health.
Bolos bag massage with medicated leaves or herbal powder. It is very effective in improving the strength of muscles, relieving body pain and curing diseases such as arthritis and paralysis. In this treatment, herbal leaves are applied to the whole body in bundles with hot medicated oils. The treatment is also known by the name Patraswedanam.
Oil is poured on the head of the patient who is wearing a cap made of leather. This cap collects the oil and retains it on the head of the patient. Effective in eye, nose and ear diseases, chronic headaches, facial paralysis, insomnia and improving vision and memory.
Luke warm oil retained over the specific affected area. Luke warm medicated Ayurvedic oil is placed on the lower back region by making an herbal paste boundary. The main benefits of this specialised Ayurvedic therapy are to reduce muscle spasms, lower spine rigidity, and strengthen bone tissues of the lower back.
External application of medicated herbal paste on the affected part of the body is known Lepana. In several types of pains associated with inflammatory conditions, Lepana is recommended. Ingredients of the paste vary according to the nature of the ailment.

The application of medical oils or powders through the nostrils is called Nasya. It is an important method of treatment for illness of the head region (Urdhwanga Chikitsa).
The secret of beauty, according to Ayurveda, is Ojas - the subtle quality of vigour or vitality. If one stays healthy in body, mind and spirit, one's Ojas stays strong and this force creates a radiant inner self and a beautiful outer self.
Special beauty care therapeutic packages (to manage wrinkles, pimples, scars, dark patches etc) can be specifically designed for you by our physician, to treat modern day maladies like stress, respiratory problems, eye ailments and skin diseases.
According to Ayurveda, obesity is caused by an imbalance 'Kapha – Water Energy'. People with a Kapha (Water) constitution are more likely to gain weight through excess fat than a Pitta (Fire) or Vata (Air) person.
Sinusitis, Dushta Pratishtaya or Peenas is an inflammatory and infectious condition of sinuses. Ayurveda has effective treatment to offer for this disease. Sinusitis usually starts with some infection or allergic reaction in the paranasal sinuses. Poor diet, digestion and elimination can create an internal environment in the sinuses that allows infection and allergies to more easily occur. Stress, poor lifestyle, bad circulation and lack of rejuvenative regimens can deteriorate the body's immune response to invading organisms in the Nasyam treatment is found useful for sinusitis.
In Nasyam treatment, medicated oil is administered to each nostril by trained practitioners. This treatment is very effective in managing the sinusitis condition.
