India has a number of systems of medicine that the world terms as alternative, but these methods were considered the prime systems in the country for centuries. Chief among these systems, and probably the best known outside the country, is Ayurveda—a word meaning Science of Life. Because of the growing interest in alternative medicine and the West’s search for holistic cures, Ayurveda has evolved into a sort of tourist industry, and Ayurveda resorts have sprung up in many parts of the country, particularly in the scenic state of Kerala.
These resorts or centers treat you to body massages, oil therapy, rejuvenation therapy, beauty treatment, stress management programs, weight-loss packages, and much more. The centers are staffed by trained professionals and most make their own medicines. To consider your options, visit www.indiantravelguide.com/ayurveda-travel-in-india/ayurveda-resorts-in-india.html.
