Wellness Therapies Ayurveda Offers

Dr. Rekha Shukla, MD Ayurveda

Before knowing the therapies of Ayurveda, it is necessary to know the actual reason, why Ayurveda is said to be a relaxing yet disease free medication.

To start from the beginning, Ayurveda is a concept which was introduced in ancient India, where people were given treatment through nature based medications. The concept of Ayurveda relies on a healthy o and disease free living.

In today’s time Ayurveda is known all over the world. It is important to note that Ayurveda not only offers wellness therapies but also medication by using natural ingredients to cure a numbers of ailments and diseases.

Ayurveda therapies are offered to people across age groups including infant, adult, and old people. Ayurveda has no restriction to any particular age group.

The concept of Wellness is referred to as a state of complete mental, social and physical health, while avoiding illness and weakness. Ayuredic medicine, massages, yoga, and an Ayurvedic diet are all key components of sound mental and physical health and wellness according to Ayurveda.

To know the wellness therapies that Ayurveda offers; let us glance at the different kinds of smooth yet relaxing nature based therapies.


Abhyangam – duration: 45 minutes

To improve your blood circulation, immunity, skin completion, and mind, Abyangam is the best yet essential Ayurveda therapy. Ayurveda experts give smooth massages starting from the head to the toe by using fresh lukewarm Aryurvedic oil. The time taken for this relaxing zone is 45 minutes.

Shiro Vasthy – duration: 30 minutes

Shiro Vasthy is a traditional name which means a solution to cure the major problems like memory aliments, sleep disturbances, and headaches. The procedure is like to be started by fixing a long chef type cap on the head and later medicated by lukewarm oil for exactly 30 minutes.

Scrub n Trim – duration: repeated sessions

It is a conceptual therapy designed for weight reduction. The procedure includes herbal powder scrub after an exotic and vaso-dilating therapy with warm herbal bags in oil / decoction. The scrub and trim therapy will give results only through repeated sessions. The vital benefits of this therapy are to cut down weight and ensure slimming. It also helps in enhancement of the skin and shaping of the body.

Udvarthanam means an herbal therapy for the weight reduction. Herbal paste or powder is applied all over the body and given a deep and smooth massage. The therapy helps in exfoliating the whole body and removing the unwanted substance from the body. It benefits in toning of the skin and muscle and helps in reducing weight.
