AYURVEDA

Full benefit of this ancient therapy is difficult to achieve in a short period of time as it defines itself as the science of life, meaning it is more a continuous practice. Never the less, satisfactory, results can be achieved on specifically targeted treatments and towards this end we have formulated a comprehensive questionnaire in order to asses the need. Since much is written and talked about this therapy, high expectations have been placed, leading to misconception. Our task is to evaluate thru our questionnaire and recommend as to what can and cannot be achieved during a given period of time.
A typical two weeks programme includes:

  • Consultation with Ayurvedic doctor.
  • Ayurvedic medicine prescription for any ailment or cleansing if required
  • Herbal stroke/flower bath/Steam Bath
  • Shirodhara (Warm head oil bath)
  • Sarvangadhara (Warm Body Oil bath)
  • Head and body massage.
  • Yoga, meditation and/or discussion on Buddhism.

Please note that all of the above schedule except for the yoga and meditation may not apply, as the doctor alone decides what treatment is best. Program of treatment will be available to the client prior to the start of the course. In case, a client decides to call off the treatment in less than a week, 50% of the treatment cost + the full cost of the stay on half board basis will be levied. More than a week, full cost of the treatment + the full stay will be levied. Under no circumstances, will the management deviate from the above condition.
