Ayurveda is a Hindu traditional system of medicine and a form of alternative medicine too. The word Ayurveda comes from the Sanskrit words “ayus”, meaning ‘life’ and “Veda”, meaning ‘science’. It is a 5000-year-old way of natural healing which has its roots in the Vedic culture of India. The past few years have seen a revival in the popularity of Ayurveda, both in India and abroad. Thousands of tourists travel all the way to India to experience Ayurvedic wellness and healing programmes.
Ayurveda is more than just a way of treating illness, it revitalizes full human potential and offers a body of wisdom designed to help people stay vital. It is the science that reminds us that health is the perfect combination of environment, body, mind and spirit.
More than a mere system of treating illness, Ayurveda is a science of life (Ayur = life, Veda = science or knowledge). It offers a body of wisdom designed to help people stay vital while realizing their full human potential. Providing guidelines on ideal daily and seasonal routines, diet, behaviour and the proper use of our senses, Ayurveda reminds us that health is the balanced and dynamic integration between our environment, body mind and spirit.
Ayurveda, which is defined as the science of life by the Veda’s, is the main essence of holistic healing in India. Spa tours in India primarily talk about the ayurvedic resorts that are scattered all across the lengths and breadths of the country. They have their location on the hills, riverbeds, beaches and cities.

Keeping this amazing combination in mind, tourism of India designs its spa tour packages that throw light on the facilities located in diversified geographies; Mighty The Himalayas, lush green South India and beaches of the peninsula.
