In this day and age, most people are familiar with the term ‘Ayurveda’ – the world’s oldest medicinal and healing system. The knowledge of Ayurveda, legend has it, was imparted by the god, Dhanvantari in his earthly incarnation as Divodasa, to a group of wise physicians. Interestingly, the word Ayurveda means the ‘the science of life or longevity’ – the latter, a quest of every civilization on Earth.
Ayurveda, as an oral tradition can be traced back to the days of the Indus Valley civilization, and its first written records are over five thousand years old. Over time, Ayurvedic knowledge has evolved – with subtle variations and additions from different scholars. It is from this collective compendium of knowledge, that we at Anaha Spa draw our inspiration for our healing and wellness therapies.
Ayurvedic remedies involve simple or complex herbal ingredients that one ingests or applied during a well-planned regime of intrinsic and extrinsic techniques. With our organic garden close at hand, most of Anaha Spa’s herbal compounds are made in-house, ensuring you have the most natural healing procedures. These natural compounds, similar to those present within the human body, can address the imbalance of elements; wind, water, fire, air and space. Achieving a balance between the elemental energies revitalizes the immune system and sets the healing processes into motion.
Beyond the physiological imbalances, Ayurveda is also considers the physical and mental environments. Increasingly, Western forms of medicine are also acknowledging the critical role of the physical space and one’s mindset in tapping into the body’s healing mechanisms. That’s why Anaha Spa, with its expert consultants and practitioners, as also its colourful gardens, airy spaces and quiet pavilions can offer you a holistic, healing experience. Break away from your everyday rhythm and routine, chart your regime of remedies, relaxation and recreation - for the perfect rejuvenation and revitalization of the body, mind and soul!
