Favorite thing: From Kerala to the rest of thew world, the ancient healing system of ayurveda has come a long way over the last 5000 years. It opffers time tested and scientifically validated programs for rejuvenation and prevention, and the state?s climate, abundance of forests and cool monsoon season are perfectly suited for ayurvedic treatments. Take Rasayana Chikitsa, for example ? a body massage with medicated oil, herbal powders, head and face massage and internal medicines along with a steam bath. Another treatment called Navarakkizhi is sought after curing rheumatism, arthritis and various skin disorders, while Kayakalpa Chikitsa is in demand for its ability to slow down the ageing process.
