Advantages of a resort near an Ayurveda Center

Ayurveda is an ancient system of traditional medicine that has been practiced in India for centuries. It is based on the premise that health and wellness are achieved when the body, mind, and spirit are in a state of harmony and balance.

Ayurveda works around a holistic approach to health and well-being - based on traditional treatments such as Panchakarma, Rejuvenation Therapy, and Marma Therapy. Panchakarma is a cleansing therapy that involves the use of oils, herbs, and other natural ingredients to detoxify the body and work towards holistic health. Rejuvenation Therapy helps to revitalize the body and mind, and Marma Therapy is used to treat chronic illnesses.
