About this listing
Program Duration: 7 Days
Host: Ayurveda Village @ Poovar Island Resort, Trivandrum, Kerala
Immunity is a concept explained in Ayurveda under multiple topics. The most important ones are Bala or the concept of strength, Vyadhi Kshamathwa or the concept of resistance to illness development, and Ojas or the concept of supreme resilience. The concept of Bala explains the ability of the system to repair and nourish itself and be effective in disease prevention, whereas Vyadhi Kshamatwa is the ability of the immune system to fight against the disease-causing pathogens. While former is a product of the overall balance of body functions, tissues, digestion, and elimination, the latter is purely denoting the function of our immune system and recovery after coming in contact with pathogenic organisms.
The preventive aspect of our immunity function is majorly related to our digestive system. Balanced doshas or bio-energies, through cleansing, are also essential for proper resistance to illness. This program is aimed at boosting your immunity and overall welness through following therapies:
ABHYANGAM; It is a specialized Ayurvedic body massage. The massage is designed around each individual to suit his or her disease or condition. Abhyangam will increase the production of white blood corpuscles and antibodies, which provide more immunity against diseases. Abhyangam also enables the improvement of immunity towards changes in the environment. This special massage is a protector, preserver and a rejuvenator, increasing confidence and will power.
STEAM BATH; This is a perspiration technique to experience the magical effects of the herbal steam. This will open up the energy channels, reduce stiffness and pain, and relaxes & rejuvenates the body. We combine a steam bath with and an oil massage to generate more impact.
MUKHALEPAM; The application of a mask made up of herbal powders and fruits over the face, followed by a gentle massage made of saffron cream are included in Mukhalepam. This treatment gives a glowing appearance to the face.
SIRODHARA; ‘Sihra’ means the head and ‘Dhara’ means the continuous flow of liquid. In this process selected herbal oils, medicated milk, medicated buttermilk etc. are poured on the forehead in a rhythm for 40 minutes. Sirodhara can be used against stress, headache, mental tension and certain skin diseases. This therapy starts with a 10 minute head massage.
Udwarthanam; The massage is a therapeutic deep tissue massage which is performed with rubbing oil and herbal powder applied in upward strokes. The intensity of the massage generates heat which then melts the excess fat in your body. It also works very well to improve the immunity and lymphatic flow of the body.
