Here you’ll find places we trust dedicated to this wise and ancient healing art. Ayurveda is probably the oldest system of healthcare on earth and it doesn’t hold with half-hearted measures – its aim is to attain perfect health and vibrant wellbeing. An Ayurveda retreat is ideal if you feel in need of a total health overhaul. Some Ayurveda retreats offer panchakarma, or Ayurvedic detox, which involves a stringent diet, abdominal massage and other therapies, or explore Ayurveda in a lighter way with one of our retreats offering Ayurveda treatments or on an Ayurveda-focused holiday. Happily, Ayurveda will encourage you to work with your body rather than against it. Read more about Ayurveda in our journal.
