The Ancient Science
The Ayurvedic centers and spas in Kerala have revived the age old practices of treatments; taking them to the people, so that they can avail its highly effective benefits. Ayurveda is derived from two words, Ayur (life) and Veda (knowledge). Thus, Ayurveda basically means the science or knowledge of life. Using all the principles of this science, the spas offer treatments based on natural therapies, making you experience the enormous nourishment of your mind, body and soul. So, all those who want to experience the life at its best, head on.
Nature at its Best!
Mother has blessed the state with abundance, which is being utilized by the Ayurveda resorts to heal people internally as well as externally. Enjoying ayurvedic treatment in the lap of Mother Nature is the best way to pamper yourself. The ideal time to go for an ayurvedic treatment is during monsoons. This is because, during monsoons, our body has less heat and the pores are relatively quite open.
Thus, the body becomes more receptive to the ayurvedic treatments and natural therapies, benefiting it the most. As nature is the greatest healer, Kerala's ayurvedic resorts provide treatment for ailments like paralysis, cataract, arthritis, stress, injuries, etc. However, the treatment varies from person to person, while the duration varies from treatment to treatment. The minimum duration for a person’s treatment is 7 days and can go up to 21 days or even more.
