Ayurveda & Spa TourKerala – ‘Gods Own Country’ as it is better known- is a treat to the eye. A long a coastline soaked in the golden sun and threaded with dainty coconut trees, this state of the Indian peninsula is stunningly beautiful. Flanked by the spectacular Arabian Sea on the west and gigantic mountains of the Western Ghats on the east, the landscape is etched with mountains, valleys, plains, rivers and numerous rivulets.

Picturesque backwaters are a unique feature of Kerala. They are welcome recluse from hectic city life. These backwaters are formed of a network of canals linking the lakes and backwaters to facilitate an uninterrupted inland water navigation system.

One more thing has come up spectacularly in the past few years and has given a major boost to Kerala state tourism – that is Ayurveda. Although Ayurveda evolved centuries ago in India, its roots can be traced as far back as about 600 BC. However it is only in recent years that it has grown leaps and bounds and has become almost a symbolic representation of tourism in India – especially in Kerala because here this stream of medicine is followed exactly, meticulously and scrupulously.

Kerala's moderate climate, natural abundance of forests impregnated with a reservoir of herbs and medicinal plants and the cool monsoon season are best suited for Ayurveda's curative and restorative packages. According to experts in ayurveda, monsoon is the best time for ayurvedic treatments as the atmosphere remains dust free and the moisture helps the body pores to open to the maximum. This makes the body more receptive to a variety of herbs and oils used in ayurveda. Ayurveda not only heals the particular ailment for which the treatment is taken but also rejuvenates the whole body by eliminating toxic imbalances present in the body and thus helps in maintaining good health.

Of all treatments in ayurveda, spa therapy is particularly popular and is in vogue among tourists. With the advent of monsoons every year, resorts in Kerala offer rejuvenating health packages in their ayurvedic spas . The word spa comes from the Latin phrase ‘ salus per aquae’ or ‘health through water’. According to another legend the word and concept of Spa actually originates from the time of the Roman Empire when battle weary legionnaires tried to find a way to recover from their military wounds and ailments. To relieve their aching bodies, they built baths around hot wells. These places were called ‘aquae’s and ‘Sanus per Aquam’ (S P A) - meaning health by or through water was the bathing treatments undertaken.
