Ayurveda is the 5000 years old traditional system of medication perfected over centuries that uses only natural ingredients and/or it's extracts for both oral and external applications. The Department of Tourism, Government of Kerala, has awarded the Ayurveda Clinic at the resorts the prestigious Green Leaf Award. This award is the highest in its category for ayurvedic centres.
The clinics offers you a wide range of treatment plans for various ailments as well as refreshing and rejuvenating therapies that soothe your body, mind and soul naturally. An in-house Ayurveda physician recommends the right treatment plan or therapy according to individual needs and skilled assistants and masseurs administer it. Guests opting for ayurveda treatment plans have the added advantage of continuing their treatment plans without interruption at either resort. That is, if a treatment plan is for example 6 days, and if the guest wishes to stay at the sister resort in between, this can be done without disrupting the regime as the plan can be continued at the visiting resort.
The eternal science of Ayurveda is another soothing experience in Nikki’s Nest. Ayurveda means "science of life". It is both a curative and a preventive form of therapy. Unbalanced biological tumors are the main cause for all diseases in the body.
