Ayurveda Rejuvenation Packages

The Ayur Villa provides home based Ayurveda treatment packages and assure you a homely atmosphere and pure organic diet. We focus on restoring the natural harmony of your body and mind through Ayurveda treatment, yoga and meditation. During the first consultation our Ayurveda doctor will ask your medical history and do the examination based on Ayurveda. Based on this our doctor will try to analyse the imbalanced dosha, discover the body’s constitution and plan the Ayurveda treatment for specific conditions to remove the accumulated toxins and plan your diet also according to the imbalance. The status of Ayurveda in Kerala is not an alternative but is the mainstream. We assure you that we would provide this system of medicine with absolute dedication. Kerala is perhaps one of the few places on earth where a temperature of 24-28 degree is maintained during the period of continuous rain. This prevalence of moisture in the air and on the surface of the skin makes it the ideal place for natural medicines to work at their highest level of potency. The key to live an effective Ayurveda lifestyle also rests within the power to attain complete relaxation through yoga. We have a spacious yoga hall and you can do yoga under the instruction of a yoga teacher. The holistic medical science of Ayurveda lies at the very heart of our purpose. An array of personalised Ayurveda treatments has been carefully perfected by our Ayurveda doctor.

Stress ManagementManashanthi Chikitsa

Treatment Duration – 14 to 28 days

Literally meaning mental peace, treatments for stress management work to relieve the ill-effects that come from the burden of mental strain-stress,insomnia, lack of concentration ,fatigue and headaches, and help in improving your mental health. The treatment course for Manashanti chikitsa/treatment follows the 3 stages, Poorvakarma- preparatory phase, Shodana – cleansing or eliminating phase and finally Samana which is the corrective and rejuvenation phase.

During the first stage, the body is prepared for removing toxins through Snehanam- internal and external oleation, followed by Swedanam -therapeutic sweating. Once the body is prepared, the doctor will determine the cleansing or panchakrma treatment based on each individual’s body constitution and medical condition. These two stages of treatment will ensure that the imbalances in the doshas (body constitution) are stabilized. The third and final stage of treatment is Samana or Paschatkarma where the body is slowly brought out of the intense cleansing and elimination stage by giving corrective medicines and moderate therapeutic treatments, appropriate diet and yoga aasanas to correct and rejuvenate the body.

Rasayana (Rejuvenation Therapy)

The various cells and tissues of the body undergo changes as age advances. it is very necessary to rejuvenate the body’s systems for a better harmony of health. Aimed at achieving this goal, the doctors plan various treatments to rejuvenate your body.

Different stages of Ayurveda treatments:

The main purification therapies are often preceded by a preparatory phase (poorva karma) which includes the administration of medicated ghee and other medicines along with different external therapies.

This is followed by the main cleaning therapy (pradhana karma).

After the main cleaning therapy there will be aftercare (paschat karma) which is followed for the gradual buildup of digestive power, energy and restoration of doshas in a balanced state. This includes special treatments and regulations in diet, activities and medicines.

This cycle may be repeated several times according to the conditions and progress in symptoms. In Ayurveda, diet and activity regulation is considered equally important as medicines and therapies. The entire treatment is overseen by special diets, yoga and exercises specific to the body nature, climate and imbalance.
