Ayurvedic Doctors

Yoga and Meditation

Yoga is an important part of Ayurveda. The combination of physical and mental training helps to improve you body, mind and soul connection which leads to a balanced and peaceful life. Our Yoga teacher is an Ayurvedic doctor as well and therefore knows about all the procedures. His lessons are a unique combination of Asanas, Pranayama, Meditation and Chanting.

Treatments

We offer various Pancha Karma treatments, such as Shirodhara, Akshi Poorna, Virechana, and so on. Apart from the multiple massages, you can find explanations of some other treatments below:

Shirodhara in Isolabella

Shirodhara

In the Shirodhara treatment you will get an oil flow on the third eye (above the root of the nose) and forehead. Depending on the method, the  ow stays permanently on the third eye or gets tossed from one side of the forehead to the other. This treatment can loosen emotions or memories during/or after the session.

Akshi poorna

is an eye bath with medicated ghee. First the area around the eyes will be cleaned with warm water. After that a ring of pastry will be put around each eye. Then you close the eyes and the doctor pours medicated ghee ( fltered 7 times) in the pastry rings around your eyes. Then he explains in a detailed way how to open the eyes. This treatment activates the nerve system of the eye, eye muscles and glands. It is very helpful for dry eyes or irritation of the eyes and it can improve your eye sight. Don’t worry! It sounds worse than it is and is not used on every patient.

Milk Pinda Sweda

Stamps filled with rice get drowned in warm milk which is then applied on your body. This treatment stimulates the peripheral nerve system and detoxication. Plus it gives energy to the body and is good for your skin.

     Herbal Formantation

During formantation the therapist massages a part of your body with herbal stamps. That helps to relieve the Vata Dosha, relaxes the muscles, opens the pores of your skin, supports the joints and stimulates the blood circulation.

     Lepa

Lepa means the application of a handmade paste on a particular part of the body (e.g. face, knie, back…) The special mixture contains herbs that nourish the joints and nerves, relieve joint pain and relax the muscles. Which exact herbs are used, depends on the patient’s need.

     Shiro Lepa

A paste that consists of many different herbs is applied on your head during Shiro Lepa. Which herbs are used, depends on your constitution and the doshas.
Above all, Shiro Lepa reduces the Pitta Dosha. It is for example used on patients with chronic migraine or headache. In addition it is helpful for the eyes, ears and sinuses. Especially stressed patients can get help through Shiro Lepa.

     Pichu

In this treatment cotton, soaked in warm medicated oil, is applied on the patient’s body. Depending on where it is needed, it can be on any part of the body, e.g. back, abdomen, joints… The warm oil gradually seeps through and spreads over the affected area relaxing the muscles and providing relief.

     Kati Vasti

The Kati Vasti controls the Apana Vata, which means all the lower parts of the body. Above all, it is good for back pain, a lumbago and to stretch the nerves.
During the treatment a ring filled with oil is applied on your back.
