India is one such nation which is not only noted for its exotic tourist destinations and hospitality but is also acclaimed the world over for its ayurveda and its fantastic results. The most notable destination offering Ayurvedic Oil Massages is Kerala and is thronged by a large number of tourists from all over the world.
The rejuvenative, preventive and curative treatments for all diseases simply produce awe inspiring results. The coconut oil and herbs are mixed to produce more effective result and thus these herbs are produced by various Ayurvedic centers in the state. The herbal powders and juices made into arishtams (liquid portions) and lahiams (thick jellies) can be consumed and are very useful for the health purpose. The sweet smell of the herbs and ayurvedic elements make for a rejuvenating feeling of the guests.
Ethnic Health Care and Tourism
Considering the growing popularity of the ayurvedic treatments, the Kerala Tourism Development Corporation has started a 'Monsoon Rejuvenation' package for tourists that blends sightseeing tours with Ayurvedic massages and healing. These treatments are most effectual after the Karkadakam or Monsoon months because the body has less heat and hence is most receptive to treatments. The philosophy of ayurveda aims to the treatment of body, mind and spirit. Therefore, a stay in the center during treatment becomes indispensable so that the entire body can be purified.
According to the ancient Indian philosophy, every body is made up of Vata (gas), Pitta (heat), and Kapha (phlegm). There are five essential components that need to be taken care of and they are vasti (bladder), vamana (digestion), videdama (waste), nasya (nose), and asravisru (blood). Various ayurvedic oils, herbs, powders and potions balance these elements on order to make certain that the mind and spirit are in excellent form.
The ayurvedic health care treatments are categorized into rejuvenative, preventive, and curative. Rejuvenative therapy is the most widespread and it means the herbal oil massage where two oils are chosen according to one's body constituency and massaged lightly but firmly all over the body-head, back, thighs, and limbs. The massage stimulates the whole body and, if followed by a steam bath (in water mixed with herbal powers), is fresh and revitalizing.
