Hi friends, have you ever been to Chattarpur/Andheria area in Delhi? Yes, I have to go there regularly and I always try to avoid it because of the rush in the area. It’s a concrete jubgle out there and even crossing a road takes a toll on you. But when I recently happened to visit the Kairali Center in the area – it was like an Oasis; it is such a peaceful and relaxing nature retreat, tucked away inside the Andheria area. The reception area was like an ancient temple courtyard – floral decorations, a big Diya lighted in front of a big picture of a deity, and the fragrances of the healing oils made the ambiance hypnotic.
This is Kairali where the ancient tradition is still alive. They make use of hands and ancient techniques to provided treatment to ailing souls or even to those who come here for relaxation. Here one can get treated in ancient and traditional manners for different kind of ailments – physical and mental and help rejuvenate the body. Traditional massages and ayurvedic medicine provide the much needed treatment. Once inside the main hall, all the modern day provisions are left behind – you don’t even feel a need of an air conditioner or a fan.

People from all walks of life come here; high profile people and celebrities keep visiting for rejuvenation and health-related treatment in a natural way. Just near the reception area, they also have the Kairali Ayurvedic store where you can buy various products.

If anyone needs advice for medical problems, then there is a resident ayurvedic doctor and a medicine counter. Depending on the nature of problem, you could be suggested different kinds of massages. It’s men treating men and women treating women here. The massage bed is made of solid traditional wood. The rooms are constructed in a manner that you don’t feel the hot weather outside.
I had detoxifying and distressing Abhyangam treatment by four trained hands, followed by steam. This 45-minute therapy with hot medicated oils with 4 hands working in perfect unison, left me totally re-energized. Both of these therapists together worked on both sides of the body, up and down with long swift strokes. After about 45 minutes I was led into the steam room. Here too they follow the traditional steam methods and not use the sauna type steam rooms. It was a wooden contraption that looks like a magicians disappearing act prop, and I was made to sit in it, and the steam was supplied through a gas fired stove. After about 5 minutes as I sweated a lot and couldn’t bear the steam heat any longer, I was directed to the shower room where a powdered mix of Moong dal was given to me to be used as soap to remove the oil, and Kairali herbal shampoo in a metal bowl for my hairs.
It was a fantabulous experience. My body felt like what I used to feel during my childhood. And I promised myself to force the PR agency handling Kairali to send me for a prolonged experience to the main Kairali resort in Kerala and came out of the center to face the scorching sun again. But after this amazing treatment, even sun was not that troublesome to my rejuvenated body and soul.
Abhyangam Four Handed Therapy is a unique treatment. There is a long wooden bed. During the massage, you will feel completely drenched in the herbal oil. Starting from your head, the massaging is done for the whole body. The herbal oil is applied from your head to toe. You are made to sit, lie down both sides and it gives you an entirely different kind of fantastico experience. Abhyangam is the Sanskrit word for oil massage and it is prescribed as a daily routine in the ancient ayurvedic texts for best results or on alternate days or at least once a week. This is a relaxing herbal oil massage in which strokes are given according to circulatory channels.
Abhyangam at Kairali Centre Delhi: The person undergoing this treatment is seated on the Droni (a wooden bed specially made for the therapy). Two masseurs stand on either side of the parson applying herbal oil on the head and massaging gently. The therapy is continued on the neck, ears, shoulders, chest and back. The person then lies on the back and the massage is continued from shoulder to toes. During the course of the therapy the person lies on his right side, left side, stomach, and again on his back , and finally in the sitting position.
