Pulse Reading
Pulse reading helps the Vaidya to determine your state of health and detect any imbalances. Treatments can be selected on this basis.

Panchakarma treatments

Panchakarma is a detoxifying and rejuvenating programme for the body, mind and consciousness. It is known for its beneficial effects on overall health and well-being, and enlivens the body’s own natural healing mechanisms.

Panchakarma programmes include a specialized lighter cleansing diet, and several consecutive days of deeply relaxing, luxurious Ayurvedic cleansing treatments such as warm oil massages, herbal steam baths and mild herbal enemas.

Panchakarma treaments are carefully selected according to individual health requirements.

Abhyanga

Abhyanga is a gentle synchronised oil massage performed by two therapists. Abhyanga dislodges from the body tissues those toxins and waste products that have already been dissolved by the earlier procedures. As in all our treatments, Abhyanga is carried out in silence, which helps to harmonise the body’s functions. Silence and rest are important components in the process of activating the body’s own self-healing mechanisms. Abhyanga herbalised massage oils are specially prepared according to individual health needs.

Vishesh
This is a full-body massage applying firmer pressure. It profoundly relaxes the muscles and stimulates circulation in the tissues.

Gharshan
This massage uses raw silk gloves, creating friction on the surface of the skin and increasing circulation in the body. It promotes weight loss and clears away clogging impurities. Gharshan is followed by oil massage.

Udwartana
This is a massage with a paste made with ground grains and herbal powders. It cleanses the skin, increases circulation, and promotes weight loss.

Pizicili
Pizicili is a special treatment which includes oil massage and heat treatment. In this so-called ‘royal treatment’ a gentle, synchronised massage is carried out under a constant flow of warm herbal oil. This treatment is highly appreciated by all guests and produces good results in cases of joint problems and muscle tension.

Swedana
The oil massage is often followed by a herbal steam bath with specially selected medicinal herbs. This dilates the vessels and thereby assists the detoxification of the system. The term Swedana includes many different forms of heat treatment. The heat can be dry or damp, applied locally or to the whole body.

Basti
After the impurities from different parts of the body have been loosened and drawn into the intestinal tract, the patient receives a Basti. These gentle internal cleansing treatments use either warm herbalised oil or water-based herbal decoctions to eliminate impurities from the intestinal tract. This is one of the most important aspects of treatment. There are four types of these internal cleansing treatments: Matra Basti, Shodhana Basti, Kshir Basti, Brimhana Basti.

Shirodhara
A favorite treatment for many guests, Shirodhara is a profoundly relaxing treatment in which a stream of warm oil continually flows over the forehead. Shirodhara treatment is done in complete silence, creating deep relaxation in mind and body.

Nasya
This highly effective therapy includes thorough massage to head, shoulders and neck, inhalations, and compresses. Sinus inflammations, disturbed memory, or irritating sounds in the ear (e.g. tinnitus) are among the problems that can be improved through Nasya. An additional benefit of Nasya therapy, according to AyurVeda, is that it is said to strengthen the mind and intellect.

Takradhara
This is a balancing treatment for the nervous system, similar to Shirodhara, but using a cooling, herbalised buttermilk decoction. At the same time a body massage is given.

Netratarpana
Today’s world is saturated with optical stimuli and our eyes can often become strained and overtired, creating an adverse effect on our vision and brain activity. Netratarpana treatment has a relaxing effect on the eyes and surrounding tissue. It is carried out in conjunction with face massage and is experienced by our guests as very enjoyable and relaxing.

Pindaswedana
Small linen bags filled with a specially prepared mixture are applied locally to relieve pain. An additional major role in this therapy is played by the highly effective Maharishi AyurVeda herbal oils which are specially selected by the doctor for the parts of the body that are painful. The effect of the herbal extracts is to relieve the pain, and to relax and build up the affected area.

Maharishi Aroma Therapy
The revival of the complete knowledge of Vedic Aroma Therapy, an aspect of Maharishi Vedic Medicine, brings us the ancient wisdom of one of the most natural systems of promoting holistic psychological and physical health and well-being.

The essential oil—‘the essence,’ ‘life force,’ or ‘soul’ of the plant—is present in the flowers, fruits, leaves, branches, seeds, root or rind of the plant. The innate intelligence in the herb awakens the inner intelligence of your mind and body.

VedAroma essential oils are balancing and normalizing in their effect; they enliven the body’s own self-healing mechanism, and help to restore balance and wholeness on all levels. They can quickly uplift us, calm and relax us, motivate and inspire us, harmonize and balance our emotions, relieve physical symptoms of imbalances, and improve many basic physical and psychological functions.


Maharishi Vedic Vibration Technology
Maharishi Vedic Vibration Technology has brought relief to thousands suffering from chronic disorders, including people with arthritis, asthma, anxiety, back pain, depression, digestive problems, headache, and insomnia—all by means of a gentle, non-invasive technology with no toxic side effects.

Maharishi explains that the body’s own inner intelligence guides the proper functioning of a healthy physiology. When the connection with this inner intelligence is lost, symptoms of ill health begin to appear. Maharishi Vedic Vibration Technology utilizes a refined impulse of Vedic sound, or Vedic vibration, to enliven the inner intelligence of the body and restore proper functioning.


Maharishi Vedic Sound Technology
Maharishi Vedic Sound treatments involve listening to traditional recitations of selected portions of the classical Veda and Vedic Literature which correspond to different areas of human physiology and aim to promote homeostatic self-repair processes in those areas.
