Ayurveda - The new balm for Fevered Souls
When alternative lifestyles and stressful schedules are talking points in the cosmopolitan circuits, Ayurveda, the art of ancient Indian healing cannot be far behind. The inability of modern allopathy to allay all sicknesses and diseases has made an increasing number of people turn to ayurveda, which has a cornucopia of ancient secret cures for stubborn diseases. Along with yoga, Ayurveda is the new balm for fevered souls. It uses natural herbs and their oils to treat ailments and ensure a healthy life.
Most of the centres for Ayurveda, called Ayurveda Shalas, are in Kerala on the South Coast. This is beach country as well, so bring along your sunscreens and hats. In fact many westerners have made ayurvedic spas their annual treat, combining a relaxing holiday with cleansing for their bodies.
Say "massage" in the context of an Asian country, and the first thoughts that come flooding in are those of the exotic massage parlors of Pattaya. But an ayurvedic massage is the real thing. These are serious life-enriching massages, so be prepared to get some energetic flesh pounding from experts. While you soak in the herbs you can watch the beaches of Vizhinjam packed with boats out to sail in the sunset.
From the beach you can see their lights strung out like pearls in a necklace from the coast. Look forward to being draped with pieces of linen, dipped in lukewarm herbal oils, all over the body by two to four trained therapists in a special rhythmic way. This goes on continuously for about 60 to 90 minutes per day for a period of 7 to 21 days, and is said to be an effective remedy for rheumatic diseases. It's supposed to be good for your nerves too and should pep up your overall energy levels as well.
Kerala - The Land of Ayurveda
Kerala's equable climate, natural abundance of forests (with a wealth of herbs and medicinal plants), and the cool monsoon season (June - November) are best suited for Ayurvedas curative and restorative programs. In fact, today Kerala is the only place in the world, which practices this system of medicine with absolute dedication. Rejuvenate your body, mind and soul by taking Ayurveda treatment at least once in your life time.

As in ancient times, Spas of today exist to provide the people with services that fulfill three of their basic needs at three levels of being; relaxation, revitalization, and rejuvenation for body, mind, and spirit.Such desired results have historically been more easily achieved in destination spas where one can detach themselves from their worldly concerns.
Ayurveda offers a win-win proposition to the spa industry; quality, cost-effective treatments, individualized to provide optimal, memorable results for a more satisfied and appreciative clientele. For as one learns to touch and communicate with people in a manner that honors their uniqueness, a whole new dimension to the spa-client relationship opens up. The spa-experience then becomes a context where our true nature can blossom and unfold. Inevitably, this is what each one of us seeks.
However, the proliferation of day spas in our towns and cities lets us know several things about the demands for such services. For some, getting away is not thought to be a possible option, in which case the day spa is there to provide a more incremental approach in achieving the goals outlined above. And for those who can manage to get away periodically, the day spa enhances or sometimes rekindles a connection with what they experienced at their destination spa, creating more sustained benefits.
