Kayakalpa derives its name from the sanskrit word Kaya which means body and Kalpa which means transformation.  Kayakalpa is a prime treatment in ayurveda aimed at arresting degeneration of body cells, slowing down the ageing process, and for improving body immunity as a whole.

According to ayurveda, when the body is not harmony, it caused distress, disease and discomfort. Kayakalpa therapy focuses on curing degenerative diseases and prolonging life by harmonizing the mind, body and psyche through:

  • Purification
  • Nourishment
  • Rejuvenation

First and foremost aspect in this treatment is detoxification of cells or cleansing the body and bringing the vitiated humor into normal.  The Kayakalpa chikitsa is particularly beneficial for office goers, people leading busy lifestyle, business people, physically tired housewives and those under immense stress.

The procedures involved in Kayakalpa Chikitsa are:

Abhyanga: Abhyanga involves complete body massage with specific herbal oils to nourish and revitalise the body tissues, and remove body toxins. 

Swedana: Abhyanga is followed by an ayurvedic steam bath, one of the most rejuvenating treatments in ayurveda.

Shirodhara: It is a process in which continous stream of warm medicated herbal oil is poured onto the forehead for 20 to 40 minutes in an oscillating manner.

Sarvangadhara: This is a soothing and relaxing procedure that includes pouring of medicated oil or milk onto the body in continuous streams while also gently massaging for an hour.

The treatments are adopted based on the physical conditions of an individual.

    Owner Anitha and manager Yousaf couldn't do enough to help. Always a smile and a chat. Spotlessly clean and nicely furnished rooms-unusual in India. Kettle in room a nice touch.
