Ayurvedic Spa Treatments in Thekkady

Ayurvedic resorts in Kerala

Ayurveda is an ancient lifestyle practice which aims to create harmony within the body. Practised widely in India, it works on the belief that all life forms have a "dosha" - a unique mix of energies known as "vata", "pitta" and "kapha". This is similar to the Western idea of elements - water, fire, earth, and so on.
The Sanskrit term 'dosha' is probably the best-known principle of Ayurveda today, the fundamental goal of Ayurvedic practice is to maintain your own innate 'doshic' balance.”

“Initially, there are three doshas or body types. Vata is composed of ether [space] and air. Pitta is composed of fire and water. Kapha is composed of water and earth. Each one of us has a unique combination of Vata, Pitta and Kapha. But there are also duo and tri-doshic types, for example, Vata/Pitta or Vata/Pitta/Kapha.”

“Each dosha type has specific tendencies. For example, Vata means 'to move' or 'to enthuse.' Vata people have alert minds, a refreshing imagination, and lots of energy, but they can burn out quickly through over-activity. Pitta means 'to cook' or 'to burn.' Pitta people are skilful and bright. They also get easily offended and can be domineering. Kapha means 'to stick' or 'keep together.' Generally stable and patient, Kapha people are laid back and not easily provoked, but once enraged; it takes some time to calm them down again.”

A person's dosha determines the kind of lifestyle that is balancing and healthy for them, including the sorts of food they should eat and the amount and type of exercise they should do. Ayurveda covers a variety of techniques, from detoxification, diet and herbal prescriptions, to yoga, meditation and massage therapy.

What are Ayurvedic spa treatments?

Most Ayurvedic spa treatments involve some degree of massage, with therapeutic essential oils chosen to suit your dosha. The massage techniques used include tapping, kneading and squeezing as well as the more traditional massage strokes you would expect. The style and flow of the message are determined by who you are, and what your body needs for balance and wellbeing at the time. An Ayurvedic therapist is trained to focus on the "marma points" - similar to the pressure points in reflexology, acupuncture and acupressure.

What are Ayurvedic treatments good for?

When combined with other Ayurvedic principles (eating a range of food prescribed by one's dosha, for example, or exercising at certain times of the day), your Ayurvedic spa treatment is designed to:
  • detoxify and cleanse
  • boost the effectiveness of your immune system
  • keep you in good health
  • help those with medical conditions to improve their overall well-being.

here are several key things that make an Ayurvedic massage different from a regular massage. From the training of the masseuse to the long-lasting effects, here are some of the things that set Ayurvedic massages apart from the rest.
  • Healing Arts Masters. The therapists at the Chopra Center are trained in all the traditional massage therapies before going through extensive and on-going Ayurvedic training to perfect their craft.
  • Special Ayurvedic Oils. Carefully crafted organic oil blends are infused with Ayurvedic herbs and heated to the perfect temperature to promote relaxation and detoxification. At the right temperature, these special oils enter through the skin and pores, bind to the Ama (toxins), and are released to purify the body.
  • Intention. Depending on the treatment, an Ayurvedic therapist focuses on clearing the energy channels in the body, moving and dislodging toxins, and balancing the chakras (energy centres). A simple shift in intention from rubbing the muscles to clearing the physical and energetic pathways can be the difference between a relaxing massage and a life-changing event.
  • Sensation. The strokes and movements in Ayurvedic massage are more connected and vigorous, yet never painful. This increases circulation and lymphatic drainage … and feels utterly blissful. Most recipients leave feeling energized and rejuvenated.
  • Benefits. Primarily, these unique treatments are intended to make the energy flow properly in the body, clear all physiological and energetic pathways, and reduce stress.
