Is an Ayurveda holiday right for me?

What is Ayurveda? What does an Ayurveda cure involve? Is an Ayurveda holiday right for me? And is an Ayurveda cure healthy for anyone? We often get these questions put to us at Puurenkuur. Are you considering an Ayurveda holiday? We cover everything you need to know about an Ayurveda holiday, here. 

What is Ayurveda?   

Ayurveda means ‘Life Knowledge’. Ayurvedic medicine is thousands of years old. This medicine, thought to be the mother of all medicines, is all about restoring balance between the body, mind and soul. A traditional cure consists of an Ayurvedic diet with lots of fresh vegetables and fruit, occasional chicken or fish (link naar blog over ayurvedisch eten), morning yoga and evening meditation, massages, herbal baths and steam baths. An Ayurveda practitioner will tailor your cure to you personally based on your dosha type (link naar verschillende doshatypes blog).

Additional benefits of an Ayurveda holiday   

During a cure in Sri Lanka or India, you’ll receive two to four treatments per day, such as head, body and synchronised massages and herbal baths and steam baths. Ayurvedic medicine is gentle and based on a natural approach. As such, there are no unwanted side effects. 

The best place for Ayurveda holidays  

Ayurveda originates from the Indian subcontinent. Sri Lanka and India traditionally represent the best places in the world to go to for an Ayurveda cure. Particularly in India there are an incredible number of Ayurveda hotels, especially in the province of Kerala (southern India). Kerala has many forested areas and a pleasant climate, with a refreshing monsoon season (June - November) and is the perfect place for an Ayurveda cure. Puurenkuur knows exactly what to look for in choosing the best Ayurveda hotels. The fantastic resorts (link naar Ayurvedaresorts) in our selection have been chosen based on strict criteria. The best of the best, if we do say so ourselves.

A-Z of Ayurveda treatments:  

  • Abhyanga Shareera body massage  
  • Abhyanga Shareera head massage   
  • Acupuncture   
  • Decoctions  
  • Face treatments  
  • Herbal baths  
  • Herbal steam baths  
  • Nasya Karama nose treatment  
  • Pinda Sweda Nawara Kizi massage  
  • Purification Therapy (Rakhtha Mokshana Karma)   
  • Shirodhara (oil on the ‘third eye’)  
  • Shiro Vasti  
  • Vamana Karma (emesis therapy)   
  • Vereka Karma (purification of the body)  
  • Vasti Karma (enema therapy) 

A more comprehensive description and a list of questions to ask in order to determine your dominant dosha type can be found in our blogAyurveda Types: are you an impulsive Vata, fiery Pitta or a calm Kapha?’ 

Good to know

In Ayurveda, male therapists will treat makes, and female therapists females (the therapist will be massaging / treating you). 

This is the case in India and Sri Lanka. In Europe, resorts may deviate from this because there is often just one Ayurvedic therapist. If, as a woman, your preference is to be treated by a female therapist, please make this clear. 

Take books and magazines with you. In line with Ayurvedic philosophy, most authentic Ayurveda resorts in India and Sri Lanka do not have TVs or air-conditioning so that you can really relax.
