ayurveda 1

WE, having a tie up with one of the leading Ayurveda Health Care providers in Kerala provide you with Ayurvedic massage, spa and Obesity Management Programmes. The ayurvedic team consists of experienced and certified doctors and physicians.

Ayurveda works using the ancient system of balance, working on the knowledge that every being is made up of the 5 base elements; EARTH, FIRE, WATER, AIR and SPACE. If we are to live balanced lives, these 5 elements must be in harmony and Ayurveda brings all these into equilibrium to enable us to live a healthy life inside and out, physically and emotionally.

Knee Treatment

our team 1

Knee pain is one of the most common problems affecting millions of people per year. It is safe to say that most individuals have experienced knee pain at some point or the other, by the time they reach adulthood. The severity of the ache depends on aspects such as the cause of the pain as well as the affected person’s age and overall health status. There are numerous factors that could lead to knee pain in a person, some of which include injuries, medical diseases, age, obesity, structural abnormalities, lack of strength and limited muscle flexibility, to name a few. Knee pain could either be acute or chronic. Acute knee pain, usually caused by a fall or an injury, comes on rather suddenly and lasts for a shorter period of time. On the other hand, chronic knee pain, usually caused by medical problems or obesity, refers to the pain that takes longer to become evident and lasts for a much longer duration. Bouts of knee pain that come and go, such as recurrent knee pain, are also usually referred to as chronic knee pain.

The Ayurvedic name for arthritic joint pains is Sandhi Vata. As the name suggests, it is caused by vitiation of the vata dosha in the human body. The word sandhi means 'joint' in Sanskrit. Ayurveda believes that Sandhi Vata can be caused due to rheumatism, infections, gout, hemophilia, trauma and even due to digestive problems which result in a buildup of ama in the body.
