1. You are a widely acknowledged Ayurveda doctor, tell us about your interest in the field and of your accomplishments.
Well, I have been working as an ayurvedic doctor since 2007 and I joined Jetwing in 2009. From that point onwards I have been working with many of foreign and local guests both as a healer and hotelier. In all honesty as an ayurvedic practitioner, I enjoy my job very much because all things that we speak of always helps me to keep my physique intact and at the same time it helps me to enhance my pulse reading as well. For our guests we offer both preventive and curative treatments. We focus on physical, mental and spiritual health. We look at the poorva karma, panchakarma and paschath karma according to the Ayurvedic rule, and meditation programs, yoga sessions as well as treatment programs.
2. How is ayurvedic treatment different from spa treatments?
Spa treatments focus on pampering but the Ayurveda treatments are quite different from it – while both result in relaxation, calmness, and therapeutic relief from muscular pain and nervous tension Ayurveda therapies go much further with the treatments being designed according to the body’s dosha. As indicated by Ayurvedic philosophies, our bodies are comprised of three doshas: vata, pitta and kapha and according to the disease the levels each of these doshas can be change. Therefore, it is important to recognize the unbalanced doshas to provide the ideal treatment. Ayurveda focuses on natural cleansing to balance the dosha through the practice of specific techniques with usage of natural oils and medicines.
3. Jetwing Ayurveda Pavilions is a wellness resort dedicated for ayurvedic treatments, how is it unique in its services?
There are so many Ayurveda resorts across the country but I know for a fact that we are unique because our service is individually catered. We have been providing ayurvedic treatments for 23 years. We have 12 luxury pavilions and 24 standard rooms that ensure maximum privacy, additionally the pavilions have separate treatment areas. This means that the guests can experience their treatments in the privacy of their own villa. There’s no buffet service, even the food is catered to the individual’s body constitution under the guidance of the doctor. We serve only fresh food and to give our guests the feel of home we don’t maintain a particular time for their meal. Our experienced physicians and therapists are dedicated to meet the ayurvedic needs of our guests.
