Kerala Ayurvedic Resorts



Kerala's tourist resorts are full of places offering ayurveda cures of every conceivable ailment. Few of them, however, are staffed by fully qualified practioners, despite what the certificates displayed on their walls may suggest. Standard of both treatment and hygiene vary greatly, as do the prices- a significant factor if you sign up for a minimum three-week stint, as most places advise.

Women travellers also sometimes complain of sexual harassment at the hands of opportunistic male masseurs; cross gender massage is forbidden in ayurveda, though the rule is routinely ignored in small, tourist-oriented centres. Note, too, that backstreet clinics might use dodgy oils that can cause skin problems.

The only way to guarantee bona fide treatment is to splash out on somewhere that's been approved by the government. Kerala Tourism's accreditation scheme divides centres into Olive Leaf and Green Leaf establishments.

Olive Leaf has the highest standards of hygiene, employ only proper staff, never allow cross-gender massage, and use top-grade oils and medicines.

Green Leaf ones, which offer equally dependable treatments. The basic facilities required for Green Leaf Certificate is the same as Olive Leaf. In addition to that Green Leaf offers additional facilities in general construction and architectural features of the building. Yoga, location and herbal garden are other desirable conditions for Green Leaf certification.

Ayurveda Treatment and the Resorts


For all the claims many make, most outfits around Kovalam and Varkala- even the pricey one-should be regarded primarily as places to seek rejuvenation rather than curers for serious medical conditions. If you've come to Kerala in search of treatments for a chronic illness of some kind, then you'd do better to explore the possibility of a spell at one of the hospitals listed in this page.

Three hospitals given below are famous all over India for the quality of their doctors and medicines, produced on their own organic estates and in-house labs. You'll need to set aside a minimum of four weeks, and book at least nine months in advance.

  1. Arya Vaidya Sala Kottakkal near Malappuaram in northern Kerala (26km from Kozhikode airport).
  2. SNA Oushadhasala near Jubilee Museum, Thrissur.
  3. Ashtavaidyan Thaikattu Mooss Vaidyaratnam Oushadhasala Ollur, Thaikkattussery, Thrissur.

Regardless of the kind of treatment you go for, and where you go for it, bear in mind the optimal season for ayurveda is said to be during the monsoons (June-Oct), when the air is free of dust and the humidity promotes detoxifying perspiration.
