Ayurveda, the treatment of mind, body, and soul dates back to over five thousand years. Here in Sri Lanka we have a rich history which associates with our own brand of Ayurveda medicine, skills and practices that can be traced back to the times of King Ravana, and King Buddhadasa(4th century). At Karunakarala, we provide this indigenous tradition to add spirituality to your leisure and create a lifestyle that you could nurture within you.
Ayurveda treats the roots of an ailment, it cleanses, it purifies and goes beyond the physical realm to find a cure to what ails you. Ayurveda doctors dedicate an ample amount of time for each patient; the treatment it provides is complete and with limited side effects as it uses the gift of nature - the essence of herbs.
We have designed several Ayurveda packages to suite your length of stay.
The Three ‘Dosha’s
The Ayurveda culture suggests that the human body is governed by three Doshas(energies that govern all biological functions), namely: Vata, Pitta and Kapha. The balance of these ‘doshas’ assures the health of an individual. This balance is often felt only during the beginning of one’s life. Each individual has his own unique way of living life. And, it is the lifestyle that you chose that affects the balance.
Ayurvedic treatments have two major objectives; to improve one’s health to protect from diseases, and to cure his ailments. A therapy purifies, pacify and nourishes an individual’s mind and body.Treatments offered at Karunakarala
