Ayurveda, meaning “knowledge of life”, made its debut in India 5,000 years ago and remains just as relevant to spa-goers today. At the center of this complex holistic medical system is the recognition and balancing of someone’s doshas (one of the three biological energies said to make up our mental and physical dispositions) through the integration of disciplines like nutrition, yoga, meditation, massage and herbal medicine. Prominent advocates like Deepak Chopra have moved this system of preventative healthcare into the mainstream, and a wide range of Ayurvedic treatments can now be found on many spa menus.
Our directory includes Ayurveda retreats designed to promote mental and physical wellness using treatments from or based on this ancient system of medicine, as well as spas offering Ayurvedic remedies as part of a modern spa experience.
