We were at Aahana for two days. Having driven straight for about 7 hours, my body wanted some pampering, and I did get some at the Naturopathy center.

I met the doctors at the center and after consultations,  I was advised to have Abhyangam, Face pack, and Potli massage for my lower back problems. I moved to the prescribed room, and immediately I was made to lie down on the massage bed. An herbal face pack was applied to my face and two expert hands now started applying warm medicated oil to my entire body along with rhythmic strokes for the next 30 minutes and then I went in to experience the Potli massage treatment for my back.

After the entire treatment I felt fully rejuvenated. It was a fantabulous experience. The rest of the day I felt fully freshened and full of new energy.

The next morning too, we spent time at the world class Nathuropathy centre and indulged in a session of beginners’ yoga. Before this session, we also experienced Yogic Satkarma kriyas of Hath Yoga. We practiced the Jala-Neti and Chakshu kriya (eye wash). Jala Neti is a yogic kriya to clean one’s sinuses. The kriya benefits (Nasal Cleaning) to cure from sinusitis, snoring, asthma, headache, hay fever, depression etc.

Apart from the treatments, the docs here have designed innumerable healthy innovative food recipes. Hemoglobin Laddooss (Laddoos made with Beet Root, nuts and honey) was one of these. I loved this grated beet root, honey and nuts laddoo for the crunchiness, taste and above all it surely was a healthy alternative to regular desserts. The Buransh juice made with Rhododendron flowers was another amazing health drink that we tasted at Aahana.

Our stay at Aahana was truly a memorable one, I thoroughly loved it. The memories of hospitality, facilities which included the rooms, therapies at the Naturopathy center and the sumptuous food that we had while at Aahana were super duper and will surely stay with us forever.
