Ayurvedic Treatments

Ayurveda is an ancient Indian system of medicine that aims to balance the mind, body and soul. Ayurvedic Resorts offer a variety of treatments to help you relax, rejuvenate and balance your body energies, also known as doshas.

One such treatment is the Ayurvedic massage, which is a deep tissue, oil-based massage. Although it may take some time to get used to the amount of oil and wearing a loin cloth, it is great for releasing any build-up of lactic acid in the muscles from a day of physical activity and can even help with sports injuries.

We highly recommend the Sanctuary Spa in Unawatuna and the Lantern Spa in Mirissa if you are looking for quality massage.

There is a bit of a gap between western understanding of toxicity and Ayuvedic medicine. Some products have been found to have a high concentration of heavy metals (lead, arsenic and mercury intentionally added).

Best to bring your own multivitamins. If you are surfing all day long you may find that additional magnesium, calcium, zinc and vitamin C will give your body what it needs recover.
