The specialist team has developed diverse programmes of different cures to address various problems such as excessive stress, an unhealthy lifestyle and age-related conditions. Some of the programmes are:
Ayurveda Basic
This is the foundation for all guests choosing an Ayurveda programme. The Ayurveda physician/specialist uses your medical history and pulse diagnosis to gain information about disharmonies and also determine your personal constitution (dosha). Based on this analysis, a customised plan is put together including nutrition, daily yoga, pranayama (breathing exercises) and meditation. Guests also receive access to the pool, sauna and fitness area. Starting at CHF 890 for three days (excluding room rate).

Participants will also be given a private lesson in meditation and pranayama. Starting at CHF 1,750 for six days, including Ayurvedic full board plus room price.

Ayurveda Detox
The Ayurvedic Detox programme is based on the principle that the body contains an acid-­base balance that can be disrupted by stress, an inappropriate diet and an unhealthy lifestyle. This cure is geared specifically at resolving this balance. The detox programme is suitable to treat skin problems, food intolerances, digestive disorders, a lack of energy and obesity.
This programme includes the basic module, three alkaline baths, two lepas body treatments, two abhyanga massages, two pinda sveda herbal compresses or udvartana herbal powder massages.
