Four hands are better than two – especially when you need rest and healing. A four-handed treatment is like experiencing two full treatments at the same time.
These treatments multiply both the sensation and effect, and the synchronous movements physically balance both sides of the body. These therapies are of immense importance to the functioning of the organs, as they increase circulation, energy flow and overall well-being, speeding up the detoxification process of the body. In addition to their stress-relieving effects, they increase mental alertness, calm the nervous system and strengthen the immune system. Last but not least, the stimuli coming from the right and the left from the same movements and in the same rhythm coordinate the functioning of the two hemispheres of the brain, which also have a positive effect on the growth of mental and creative activity and the development of skills.
This technique embraces all the virtues of individual treatments while surpassing them in their effectiveness and the good feeling they convey, as the energies and movements of the practitioners are doubly present. Synchronous treatments generate energies that allow one to experience the feeling of unity and ancestral trust. A state of equilibrium can be created that awakens the body’s self-healing mechanism, through which it becomes even more cleansed and regenerative.
This is the most important treatment in Ayurvedic medicine, recommended for general health, well-being, insomnia, sleep disturbance, depression, joint problems, circulatory problems and also for overcoming stress. Its benefits are mainly seen in mental alertness, calming the nervous system, and also improving appetite. The essence of Ayurvedic massage therapy is that it provides a personalized treatment to bring balance to the particular individual, so the massage practitioner may decide which type of oil is most suitable to use for the treatment. The highlight of this treatment is that the massage steps go through the Marma points covering the human body, thus dissolving any blockages. The Abhayanga massage begins with the selected pleasantly warmed oil applied to the face and head, continues onto the soles of the feet and upwards, onto the abdomen and chest, from which even the earlobes are no exception.
A deep dry massage in which we gently rub the body with a mixture of herbal grind while it completely warms up. This treatment is especially an excellent remedy for cellulite (cellulitis), achieving the right body weight, burning fat, body shaping, and metabolism problems. This wonderful treatment results in perfectly smooth and flawless skin that glows.
This is an Ayurvedic sweat-inducing treatment using a therapeutic compress. Sweating is provided by cotton bags filled with original Kerala Ayurvedic plants and powders cooked in medicinal oil. The warmed bags are continuously dipped into the warm oil and gently tapped onto parts of the body. Here, the treated body parts are immediately covered with a warm towel to maintain their warmth. Elakhizi is extremely effective for pain, swelling, stiffness, numbness, arthritis, rheumatism, spondylosis (vertebral calcification), low blood circulation and weakness. This is the most enjoyable Ayurvedic treatment that triggers vigor and vitality, and the best remedy especially on cold winter days. We recommend it mainly to our Vata and Kapha guests.
This treatment is made special by the use of Navara rice, a unique kind that is not eaten, due to its chemical and mineral composition, and has a miraculous regenerating effect. We cook the Khurundoti root in cow’s milk for long hours at a time and then fill the bags of cloth with Navara rice. This procedure is the same for Elakhizi, dipping the cloth bags in the warm milk and gently tapping, coating and massaging the body with them. Maintaining heat is also essential to this process. Ayurveda recommends this form of treatment for high blood pressure, rheumatism, weak muscles, sciatica, high cholesterol, sexual problems, infertility and skin problems.
Dripping warm healing oil onto specific areas of the head calms the central nervous system, and is excellent for stress relief, insomnia, combating neurological diseases, as well as treating tinnitus, dizziness, psoriasis and graying hair. The interesting aspect of this treatment is that, although the practitioner drips heated oil over the forehead, this technique generates a cooling sensation by the end of the process. It is primarily recommended for those who have restless minds, who are unable to switch off their brains, and are constantly pondering over something.
We combine light chiropractic with ayurvedic, using special heated cloth bags to warm and relax the muscles. With this method, we can help with muscle stiffness and hardening, clumping, pinched nerves, lumbago, sciatica, cervical spine issues, shoulder pain, fatigue, headache, scoliosis, and limping. This treatment does not affect the bones, but the muscles and joints. It can be used to eliminate symptoms that trigger disorders. In the case of pain, we often feel that our joints are sore, when in reality our brains may be sending a signal about a bone overload developing near the joints. That is why it is so important to tone our muscles so that we can permanently eliminate the source of the pain.
This exceptionally effective treatment focuses on the entire back, spinal muscles and the area around the neck. In 60 minutes, it relieves pain by relaxing, adjusting, massaging and warming the tense neck and surrounding muscles. We use cupping therapy to stimulate blood circulation. We recommended this for our sedentary guests.
Treating the palms and soles as a separate microsystem affects the entire body. By stimulating the reflex zones of the palms and soles, we improve vital functions and stimulate internal organs, during which painful joints are calmed and edema is reduced. Experience positive changes after only a few treatments.
During this treatment we focus on the head and neck. The massage stimulates blood circulation, increases brain function, and our hair becomes shiny and healthy from the use of rich oils. Some treatments completely dissolve the muscle blockages formed along the neck and shoulder line. This is also effective for treating insomnia. Indian women have such healthy, strong and beautiful hair, because they regularly nourish their hair and scalp with oil.
A cleansing Ayurvedic therapy for the eye using lukewarm healing ghee. Once the therapeutic dough is properly molded around the eyes, the herbal ghee is slowly dripped inside the eye until it and the surrounding area is covered with liquid, forming an eye bath. The patient then performs an eye exercise to help lubricate it. Tarpan, as a treatment, is very effective, especially for dry itchy, red, irritated, teary, and ringed eyes. It also significantly improves vision after repeated treatment and is recommended for prevention of loss of sight especially for those who often use a computer or sit in front of a TV screen. We do not achieve results after just one treatment, as continuity is the key, so we recommend this as a remedy. The duration of the treatment depends on the individual and the specific condition.
Nasyam is a multi-part procedure consisting of steaming and massaging the nose, face, head and neck, and delivering decoctions, oils, and sometimes powders, to the nose and face. This procedure is a very important part of Purvakarma, i.e. it plays an important role in the preparation of Panchakarma, as the elimination (removal) of toxins from the head and neck is the objective of Nasya therapy. This cleansing process is recommended for anyone who has headaches, migraines, sinusitis, chronic colds, chest congestion, cervical spondylosis (vertebral calcification) or facial paresis.
This is a very effective ayurvedic treatment for pain in the spine, waist and sacrum, as well as various lesions of the spine such as chronic back pain, sciatica (inflammation of the sciatic nerve), arthritis, lumbago (lower back pain), osteoarthritis (chronic arthritis) and weakness in the lower extremities. The therapist builds a circular supporting wall for the lower back out of a special dough, into which lukewarm is poured and then gradually warmer healing oil is added with the utmost attention. With this procedure, we oil and lubricate the joints so that they are flexible and able to perform their physiological function painlessly. Blood circulation increases, cramps, muscles relax, and connective tissues are strengthened in the treated area.
This is a very beneficial Ayurvedic treatment for knee joint problems. In this case, the therapist builds a circular supporting wall made of special therapeutic dough on top of the knee, onto which he pours lukewarm and gradually warmer healing oil with increased attention. In this way, the topical warming increases blood circulation, oils the joints and helps to reverse and cure various degenerative diseases. This is an effective Ayurvedic treatment for knee joint problems, topical warming, massage, and the application of healing oils to problem areas. It can be used for knee wear, pain, and functional problems.
This is an essential therapy for vertebral calcification (spondylosis), chronic neck pain, and neck stiffness.
This is a very powerful treatment for respiratory problems such as asthma, bronchitis and allergies, cardiovascular complaints, as well as chest muscle pain. The therapist gently massages the chest area with warm camphor oil, then builds a container from the therapeutic dough on top of the chest, into which he slowly pours lukewarm and then gradually warmer and healing oil with the utmost attention. This procedure improves blood circulation, it strengthens the connective tissues, and any deposited mucus ruptures and vanishes from the body.
This is a remedy for painful joints, in which the therapist provides personalized treatment depending on whether the issue is wear and tear, inflammation, or a circulatory problem.
The therapist uses a combination of multiple treatments simultaneously, including:
- Patra potli (bath treatment with a mixture of herbs)
- Various vastis (topical heating with healing oil)
- Wraps (with oils, powder, or herbal)
15 min. (sauna)
This is a powerful detoxification procedure, where, like a sauna, the steam encourages the body to sweat naturally, during which toxins are more easily removed. The Swedana enhances the effect of the massage, and its duration always depends on the individual’s shape and condition. Recommended as an adjunct to other treatments.
