FAQ - Frequently asked questions
Why do patients choose Kalari Rasayana Ayurvedic Clinic?

Ayurvedic clinic Kalari RasayanaKalari Rasayana is a partner clinic of the world-famous Ayurvedic sanatorium Kalari Kovilak in Kelar, which became the prototype of the clinic.

The Indian clinic-hotel offers authentic and scientific Ayurveda, which is able to heal and prevent the occurrence of many diseases. Therefore, people come here exclusively for a conscious deep immersion in the ancient teachings.

Translated from Sanskrit, “Rasayana” means rejuvenation, which is greatly facilitated by the atmosphere in the clinic. Ideal conditions are created here for the improvement of the soul and body. The philosophy of the hospital is to give people the opportunity to be reborn and start their lives anew.

The resort is located on the shores of the picturesque Lake Paravur in the unique backwaters of Kerala. The wellness center offers wonderful views of the water surface. The Arabian Sea, from which a light breeze reaches the hotel, is situated three kilometers away.

The high humidity and mild climate that reign in Kerala are considered ideal conditions for undergoing all Ayurvedic procedures. According to many Ayurveda practitioners, the best time of the year to travel is during the summer monsoon season. This time of the year is the easiest time to achieve dosha balance.

It is advised to patients to book a tour to the Kalari Rasayana Ayurvedic Center in advance, as there is a huge demand for it. The clinic is visited by guests from more than 40 countries of the world, and the number of rooms in the hotel is limited.

What is the difference between Ayurvedic treatment in Kalari Rasayana and traditional medicine?

Ayurvedic nutritionAyurveda is an ancient holistic medical science of life that originated in India 5,000 years ago and has proven effective in practice. Ayurveda is recognized by the World Health Organization. It is a serious scientific system about a healthy lifestyle.

For many millennia, a serious scientific base, and unique methods for diagnosing, treating, and preventing various diseases have been accumulated. Ayurveda is closely related to traditional Indian practices and yoga in particular. The doctrine is widely studied in Indian universities, as well as in some universities in Israel and the USA.

Features of Ayurvedic treatment in Kalari Rasayana:

  1. In traditional medicine, the disease is treated directly or its symptoms are eliminated. Ayurveda is built on a holistic approach to man. In Kalari Rasayana, attention is paid not so much to the treatment of the disease but to the consciousness and mind of a person by opening up hidden possibilities for healing and rejuvenation.
  2. Ayurveda is a natural therapy, in which complications or side effects are minimized, while in traditional medicine there is always such a risk.
  3. All Ayurvedic medicines in Kalari Rasayana are made from ecological herbs, spices, plants and vegetable oils, cereals, and minerals. They undergo appropriate processing according to classical Ayurvedic production methods.
  4. The Vadya doctor (Ayurvedic doctor) of the clinic does not use modern medical devices in his practice. The only exception may be a tonometer for measuring pressure.
  5. In the process of therapy, the specialists of the hospital use their own treatment techniques, which Europeans may consider exotic and incomprehensible.
  6. All Ayurvedic procedures carried out in the sanatorium simultaneously influence the body and soul of a person and are performed using the same technologies as 5,000 years ago. The procedures are combined with the practice of yoga and meditation. Special attention is given to them in the clinic.
  7. The main goal of Ayurvedic treatment in Kalari Rasayana is to bring all the vital forces of the body into balance.


What packages are offered at Kalari Rasayana?

Kalari Rasayana Package Programs - MassageThe clinic has developed special Ayurvedic packages:

  1. Manasanti program, 14 days. It is designed for stress relief and deep healing. The program is suitable for everyone who experiences moral and physical fatigue, suffers from insomnia, headaches, and cannot concentrate due to constant stress. This program is in demand among IT workers, as well as everyone who works at night, and spends a lot of time traveling.
  2. Panchakarma program, 21-28 days. This is the most demanded program, which includes Ayurvedic procedures that help cleanse and rejuvenate the body. This is a classic five-step recovery program that has gained worldwide popularity. It is based on cleansing the body with ghee butter. In India, it is called “liquid gold’. Ghee butter has a positive effect on the body and is widely used in Ayurveda (45 types of ghee butter are used in Kalari Rasayana):
  • tones and rejuvenates the body;
  • helps relieve stress and nourishes nerve cells;
  • normalizes metabolism;
  • improves brain and cardiovascular system;
  • improves immunity.

Many hotel guests who have previously taken the Panchakarma program come back to it again. The best results during the passage of the program are from 21 days.

  1. Sthanlyakina Chikitsa program, 21-28 days. It is designed for cleansing and weight loss.

The program is based on a set of procedures aimed at accelerating metabolism. Particular attention is paid to a carefully planned individual diet of patients, consisting of light meals and the intake of natural Ayurvedic preparations.

  1. Rasayana Chikitsa program, 28 days. It is based on anti-aging procedures that can prolong a person’s life and fill it with energy. A feature of the program is that for the first 2 weeks the patient undergoes only cleansing procedures, getting rid of toxins and slags. Starting from the third week, doctors prescribe special procedures that are aimed at slowing down the aging process and cellular destruction by strengthening the immune functions of the body. The passage of this program can get rid of a number of diseases even in old age.

The range of services of all package programs includes:

  • accommodation, according to the booking: in standard rooms, separate houses-villas or in comfortable hotel rooms with access to a balcony-terrace;
  • all necessary types of procedures provided by the program;
  • full board Ayurvedic diet;
  • meditation, participation in group yoga classes, Ayurvedic cooking lessons;
  • thematic lectures and seminars;
  • evening cultural program.

It can be difficult for patients to decide on the choice of the necessary program on their own. Ayurvedic specialists of the clinic offer to send them medical information in advance for study. It may include:

  • the patient’s medical history;
  • medical card;
  • recent diagnostic examinations;
  • test results.

After studying the information, the doctor can recommend a specific program, as well as determine the intensity and duration of treatment. A preliminary consultation can be ordered from the coordinating doctors of Experts Medical. The clinic’s Ayurvedic specialists determine the final program after a personal consultation on the spot.

What are the features of the stay of patients in Kalari Rasayana?

Features of the stay of patients in Kalari RasayanaKalari Rasayana is no ordinary tourist resort. This is a place where guests are immersed in a new way of life that harmonizes the outer and inner worlds, fills them with energy, and gives them a sense of wholeness.

The stay of patients in the sanatorium is completely devoted to the healing of the soul and body. Therefore, a number of clear rules have been established here, which everyone who has chosen a deep Ayurvedic treatment in this clinic must follow. Among the rules:

  1. Kalari Rasayana is a closed resort that patients are not allowed to leave during therapy. According to the doctrine, an organism that undergoes purification is extremely vulnerable to negative effects from the external environment.
  2. Treatment is carried out after cleaning the body. Throughout the course of treatment, Ayurvedic programs are necessarily combined with yoga, meditation, and an individual diet.
  3. The minimum course of treatment is 14 days.
  4. All hotel guests move around the sanatorium in special white clothes and shoes (not leather), which are issued on the spot and changed daily.
  5. Abbreviations of the treatment procedures included in the package are not allowed.
  6. The clinic-resort has a swimming pool, which is used for contemplative purposes. According to the rules of Ayurveda, it is impossible to bathe in it during treatment. This does not contribute to cleansing.
  7. For each guest of the spa hotel, specially trained chefs prepare vegetarian dishes according to an individual menu. Dishes contain a minimum amount of spices, salt, and sugar. Eggs, coffee, and black tea are excluded.
  8. Among the main prohibitions are smoking and drinking alcohol.
  9. Patients can only use mobile phones and other gadgets in their rooms.
What are the features of the stay of patients in Kalari Rasayana?
