A few days back I stepped into a hospital through a majestic gate in a lush green arena and entered my villa. No, I am not dreaming, this is reality! Everybody wants a getaway or a relaxing holiday away from the stress & hustle bustle of daily life. This time around I headed for a retreat to Kairali- The Ayurvedic Healing Village. It is actually a hospital built in a resort environment for holistic healing where treatments are done through Ayurveda! Isn’t that great! Formerly known as Kairali Ayurvedic Health Resort, the Kairali Ayurvedic Healing Village is flawlessly set in the scenic town of Palakkad known as the Gateway of Kerala, a jewel in this Southern state of India’s crown. The healing village boasts of rich flora & fauna, away from the city life where ChicLifeByte had a wonderful time!
A Thursday evening instead of heading back home, I thought of pampering myself! And what better way to pamper myself than nature’s therapy at Kairali Spa. So I took the road to Mehrauli.
As I entered, I felt captivated by the red and white brick wall colour theme designed by a designer from Kerala. I was suggested a full body massage named Abhyangam Therapy. This is a distinct relaxing and detoxifying therapy where herbal oil is massaged all over the body using a special technique applied. The person undergoing the massage is made to lie down and the massage is continued in a synchronized manner from head to toe. These massage technique helps to sooth the muscles, increase the vigor, open up the tissue networks and rejuvenate all the senses. Abhyangam has been found very effective for improving eyesight, longevity, circulation and mental alertness this also helps to induce peaceful sleep. It is the best massage to delay ageing and is a preventive massage for good health.
