Ayurveda is an ancient science more than 10,000 years old. Practiced largely in the Indian subcontinent, Ayurveda involves a combination of various therapies and techniques to alleviate aches, pains and chronic diseases. In recent years, due to changing lifestyles, environmental pollution and stress, man has failed to achieve harmony with mind, body and soul. In such a scenario it is Ayurveda to the rescue.
Ayurveda stands divided into eight branches called Ashtangas. They are named as Kaya (general medicine), Baala (pediatrics), Graha (astrological), Urdwanga (above neck), Shalya (surgery), Dhamshtra (toxicology), Jara (longevity) and Vrusha (infertility). The physician who has expertise and thorough knowledge of all these branches is called an Ashtavaidyan.
A household name in India, Ayurveda boasts of a large number of popular therapies such as Dhara, Ayurvedic Massages, Panchkarma and Sirodhara. These therapies and treatments heal several nagging diseases that may or may not be chronic in nature.
Panchakarma is a process of cleansing of the entire human body internally and this process is divided into five steps, namely Vaman, Virechan, Anuvasan, Niruhan, and Navan/Nasya. Sirodhara on the other hand is the process of calming the mind and expanding consciousness by continous pouring of warm oil to the forehead for 25 minutes or so. This relaxes the entire body. Lastly, nasya drops are administered to the nasal passage, which helps in removing residual doshas and toxins from the head and neck area.
These therapies and treatments, performed with expertise and precision make India the best Ayurvedic tourism destination in the world.
