Ayurveda (the complete knowledge for a long healthy life) is India’s ancient medical heritage. At “Healthy Minds”, we respect this heritage which explores Mother Nature’s gifts to Human Kind. We have imbibed some of the practices of this traditional Indian science for creating peace in people. The Ayurvedic centre, which is a part of the “Healthy Minds” clinic, is run by trained Ayurveda practitioners.
At Healthy Minds we provide a peaceful and comfortable ambience to provide the Shirodhara treatment which releases the mind and body of fatigue, stress, depression, hair loss, insomnia and other psychological distresses.
Shirodhara (Shiro means head and Dhara means flow) is a rejuvenating therapy designed to eliminate toxins and mental exhaustion and any ill effects on the central nervous system.
It is an ancient therapy of pouring oil on the forehead at specific frequencies. The oil is poured from a specific height and for a specific period in a rhythm allowing it to seep into the scalp and hair.
Trained Ayurveda experts monitor the process as the oil is poured on the centre of the forehead which is state as the ‘third eye’ or the chakra point also referred to as the seat of human consciousness. Apart from oil, other liquids used in shirodhara include milk, buttermilk, coconut water, or even plain water.
At Healthy Minds we offer Nasya an Ayurvedic treatment in which medicines in liquid form are administered through the nose to alleviate mental illness and physical problems of the head.
Nasya or Nasa, one of the Panchkarmas mentioned in Ayurveda, is beneficial for the eyes, nose and ears. As the nose is connected to the head, this therapy is highly effective in curing diseases pertaining to the head. If done regularly, the therapy has the power to clean the channels of the head thus improving oxygenation that in turn directly enhances the functioning of the brain and prevents effects of early aging.
While it enhances the effects of sense organs and protects the person from diseases of the head, Nasya also ensures the proper and healthy growth of hair and prevents graying.
Swedan, an Ayurveda detoxification of the human body that vitalizes the skin and makes it glow, can be availed at Healthy Minds. Swedan (meaning sweating) is an oil massage therapy that loosens the vessels and helps detoxify the entire body system.
Expert Ayurveda practitioners massage specially prepared herbal mixtures and warm medicated oils on to the body leading to good circulation and increase in perspiration. This results in elimination of wastes and toxins via the skin thus improving the skin tone.
It is an excellent and recognized therapy for toning the skin and giving it a special long- lasting glow.
