The secrets of India’s traditional medicine have been incorporated into a set of special Ayurvedic experiences provided by a skilled team of Indian therapists at Cleopatra’s Spa, Wafi City, Dubai. Throughout October, the upscale spa’s Detox Renewal, Mood Booster and Silhouette Me treatments will be melding luxury pampering with millennia-old medical wisdom.
All three Ayurveda experiences combine traditional Ayurvedic treatments with Yoga and come with a complimentary consultation with Ayurvedic Doctor.
“Each treatment has been developed to achieve specific results and to perfectly embody Ayurvedic principles. Each is also carefully twinned with a specific style of Yoga, a form of exercise which originated alongside Ayurveda thousands of years ago,” said Dr Suresh Kumar, the in-house Ayurvedic doctor at Cleopatra’s Spa who will be providing consultations with the spa’s Ayurveda experiences.
Ayurveda is one of the world’s oldest lifestyle and medical philosophy. It offers cures as part of a complete way of life based on a theory of three primary life-forces - Vata, Pitta and Kapha - that correspond to air, fire and water. The imbalances that can cause ill-health are treated with herbs and oils selected for a specific constitution.
The Ayurveda experiences at Cleopatra’s Spa incorporate three original Ayurvedic treatments. Elakkizhi is a massage using eight fresh herbs blended in Ayurvedic oils and packed into special cloth bags. Carefully applied by the expert therapists of Cleopatra’s Spa in a 90-minute treatment, these heated bags eliminate toxins and provide an excellent therapy for aches and pains.
Elakkizhi features in the Ayurvedic Herbal Bag Massage, combined with Total Detox Yoga at the neighboring Pharaohs’ Club in the “Detox Renewal” Ayurvedic Experience. This is available throughout October at a promotional price of AED 390.
The “Mood Booster” Ayurvedic Experience incorporates the renowned Ayurvedic Dhara treatment - a process developed in Kerala in which a steady stream of liquid is poured onto the forehead in a precise manner. This comes with a Happy Heart Yoga session to deliver a positive and peaceful outlook on life at a promotional price of AED 390.
The “Silhouette-Me” Ayurvedic Experience features a Herbal Powder Massage that follows the ancient Ayurvedic practice of Udwarthanam, a dry massage with heated herbal powders that are selected for their ability to reduce fat, strengthen muscle and promote healthy skin. This comes with a session of Total Detox Yoga at a promotional price of AED 350.
All these treatments include a complimentary Ayurvedic consultation and are subject to recommendation by the in-house Doctor. For long-lasting results a series of treatments are advised.
