Ayurveda in Heritance Maha Gedara

The Heritance Maha Gedara belongs to the most renowned Ayurveda houses of Sri Lanka. The very well experienced team, the ayurvedic food as well as the pleasant atmosphere in the house are the basis for a successful cure.

Ayurveda focuses on two areas:

1. Healing
2. Prevention

It means that Ayurveda is of value for people who are going through illness, but also for those who wish to strengthen their immune system. An Ayurveda doctor will examine you on arrival and an Ayurveda welcome relaxing feet treatment will be prescribed. It is called "Pada Avagahanaya" or "Pada Abyanga" or feet massage.
After an extensive medical examination, the senior physician determines your constitution type and establishes an individual Ayurveda treatment according to your individual needs. What kind of treatments and how often you need them will be defined by the senior physician. Your treatment plan is then followed daily by an experienced team of well trained, friendly therapists under the direct surveillance of the Ayurveda doctors of the hotel.
The Ayurveda program includes daily treatments, therapies, oils, herbal medications and ayurvedic food with beverages. Yoga and meditation are an important component of your cure. This holistic approach brings the wished success.
Before departure the senior physician gives his/her final consultation, and discusses with you how to establish a healthy life plan.

In Sri Lanka findet man ein tropisches Klima vor, welches abhängig von Ort und Jahreszeit sehr unterschiedliche Temperaturen und Luftfeuchtigkeit vorweisen kann. Die angenehmste Reisezeit ist zwischen November und März. Aber auch in den heißfeuchten bis regnerischen Monaten kann gerade eine Ayurvedakur sehr effizient wirken, da die Entgiftung über die Poren gefördert wird.
