Nature: A powerful physician

A positive approach to good health through nature is the mission of the Ayurveda Kendra, which aims to rejuvenate both the body and mind.

Pizhichil therapyHoused in one of the quieter lanes of Juhu, the Ayurveda Kendra is replete with fragrant aromatic oils that fill your senses when you enter. The silence inside is welcoming, almost as if the therapy has already begun. Pristine and clean, this is the place to rejuvenate yourself and be one with nature.

"Nature is one of the most powerful physicians of the body and mind," says Dr Dhanya Umanath of Ayurveda Kendra. Ayurveda, the most natural medicinal science, not only heals but also preserves and rejuvenates inherent sources of energy.

The Kendra has offered relief to people suffering from diseases like respiratory disorders, diabetes, hypertension, epilepsy, migraine, asthma, ulcer, stomach problems, infertility and obesity, to name a few. The treatment includes massages and oral medicines.
