Ayurveda & Wellness

Ayurveda in ancient Sanskrit translates to “knowledge of life” and this science of healing and well-being originates from the ancient Hindu civilisation of the subcontinent, the oldest Ayurvedic text relating to the treatment of ailments dates back over 6000 years. 

Ayurveda recognises that a person is made up of mind, body, senses & soul, and that an effective program must holistically address all of these aspects to ensure a person's wellbeing. 

Ayurveda spas in Sri Lanka offer a wide array of treatments, including: 

  • Ayurvedic Massages

Traditional Ayurvedic massages involve the use of herbal oils and customized techniques to promote relaxation, improve circulation, and release stress. The massages aim to restore balance to the body's energy centers, or doshas. 

  • Panchakarma Therapy

Panchakarma is a detoxification process in Ayurveda that involves a series of treatments designed to eliminate toxins from the body. Panchakarma therapies may include herbal steam baths, oil massages, nasal cleansing, and personalized diet plans. 

  • Herbal Remedies

Ayurveda utilizes a wide range of medicinal herbs and herbal preparations to address various health concerns. Ayurvedic spas may offer herbal treatments such as herbal wraps, herbal baths, and herbal oil applications to nourish and rejuvenate the body. 

  • Yoga and Meditation

Many Ayurveda spas in Sri Lanka integrate yoga and meditation practices to complement the treatments. Yoga helps in improving flexibility, strength, and overall well-being, while meditation promotes mental clarity and inner peace. 

It's important to note that Ayurvedic treatments are personalized based on an individual's unique body type, or dosha. Prior to any treatment, Ayurvedic practitioners typically conduct an assessment to determine the dosha imbalance and create a tailored treatment plan.
