The Rockholm way of life is firmly grounded in the principles of Ayurveda.
Ayurveda is the traditional, ancient Indian system of medicine. Ayurveda means, ” science of life.”
The Ayurvedic method of holistic healthcare emphasizes balancing the body, mind, and spirit to treat and prevent diseases. This 5,000-year-old practice focuses on harmonizing the body with nature through diet, herbal remedies, yoga and meditation.
Ayurveda places great emphasis on prevention and encourages the maintenance of health through close attention to balance in one’s life, right thinking, diet, lifestyle and the use of herbs.
Knowledge of Ayurveda enables one to understand how to create this balance of body, mind and consciousness according to one’s own individual constitution and how to make lifestyle changes to bring about and maintain this balance.
During your stay a bespoke Ayurveda & Diet regimen is created by our Chief Physician Dr. Sreekala Santosh and Dr Sajitha Kumari. Each of your treatments are delivered by an experienced team of 5 male and female therapists in the privacy of our 3 well equipped treatments rooms.
In keeping with our Ayurveda philosophy we are an alcohol free retreat that fosters holistic well being. In order to completely profit from your healing time off the grid we recommend a minimum 7-day stay to encourage you fully immerse in an Ayurvedic lifestyle. On your arrival at Rockholm during your check in our front office team will inform you of your Ayurveda Consultation Timing.
The ‘Diet Program’ at Rockholm is completely personalized for each of our guests and compliments the Ayurveda and Yoga plan. Our Dietician designs a tailor made menu for each guest depending on various factors including the duration of their stay, health goals, and lifestyle and treatment program.
