After having slogged for the entire Wedding Season (I am a Wedding Photographer) I really needed some Self-Love. My body ached for a good rest and Spa and I was clueless where to go. I have lived in Thakur Village for so long yet was oblivious of this wonderful place called NuAyurveda Clinic so near to my home!
Finally I booked my appointment and was looking forward to the experience. I chose the “Abhyangam Massage” also known as ‘The Kerala Ayurvedic Massage’. Their website explained it as “a full body massage (Head to Toe) done with medicated herbal oils. It relieves pains and aches in the joints by lubricating the same, improves blood circulation and channelizes nerve ending.” This sounded like the exact relief I was looking for! When I read the benefits of this Massage, I was sold. I just had to get one!
When I entered the clinic, the only question I had in mind was “Why is it called a Clinic and not just a SPA?” When I asked the sweet female there who welcomed me, she told me about the healing techniques used in these services which make it so much different than any other Spa where they simply message you. Here the oils they use and the points they press and the techniques are all designed after a lot of research so that it heals you of your pain and not just a temporary relaxation.
I was amazed at her answer. Such a beautiful way of thinking and doing. I felt comfortable immediately.
The Abhyangam Massage – 4 hands was the one where two therapists worked on me simultaneously with synchronized movement. It truly felt like heaven as I sensed the pain get released from each part of my body. One of them gave me such a divine head massage, which I totally needed that day.
There is an Abhyangam Massage – 2 hands also, which means 1 therapist will work on your body. That too I believe is good. This hardly much difference in the cost.
Things I Liked:
- Their charges are pretty decent and one can get a nice massage in around Rs. 1500 approx.
- The therapists are well trained and can understand you well.
- They have an individual steam room, toilet and bath room attached inside every room. So now you don’t have sit awkwardly for steam with others after your massage.
Things that could have been better:
- They could provide a better towel perhaps.
Overall, I am super happy to have found such a kickass place near my house!
