Treat Yourself to a Retreat – Top Indian Ayurvedic Spa Resorts

Do you feel out of tune with your body? Whether you are struggling with a chronic illness or pain, or you simply spend too much time fuming in traffic, the ancient health science of Ayurveda may help kick-start your immune system and alleviate the pain and stress.

Translated as the ‘science of life’, Ayurveda is system of health that is entirely focused around bringing the body back into harmony – from the root of the problem to the symptoms that keep you from feeling your best.

Ayurvedic practitioners understand that everything in the body is connected and that everyone is different, so each treatment plan is personalized with remedies meant just for you! They consider each individual’s constitution when prescribing treatments, exercise routines and daily dietary recommendations.

We have mentioned spa resorts that feature Ayurvedic treatments, but if you are interested in a full-immersion Ayurvedic retreat where the health secrets of the ancients are at your fingertips, check out these luxurious Ayurvedic resorts below!

Here, on the shimmering shore of the Arabian Sea, ancient systems of Ayurveda are tailored to your wellness goals. For a detoxification of the body and mind, you could choose the Panchakarma program (a sanskrit word that means five-treatment). Through daily massage, ancient essential oil therapy, and herbal detox therapies, this program aims to purify the body through the release of toxins – and therefore regain a healthy balance between the body and mind. Other packages, such as anti-aging, weight loss and stress management, utilize Ayurvedic therapies, yoga, massage and naturopathic medicine to customize your stay.
