Ayurveda at Maitreyi starts with a personal consultation by the Vaidya (physician). The Vaidya will assess your health requirements; will give personal recommendations and the specific treatment program. Our treatments are very much personalised – every suggestion, be it for internal medicines or for external applications, is only made after carefully considering the nature and strength of the patient and the severity of the imbalance. We strictly follow the principle of ideal treatment as emphasized by Ayurveda – individualised treatments according to prakriti and condition of the patient. This is most efficient to bring back the delicate balance helping to rejuvenate body and mind.
These authentic Ayurvedic treatments, given in its traditional pure form under the expert guidance of our Vaidya will bring profound and lasting benefits. The serene and peaceful atmosphere of the Vedic Village will add its healing touch and provides an ideal environment most suitable to inner and outer wellbeing. We inspire guests to combine their Ayurvedic treatments with a spiritual practice (yoga, meditation or any other form of sadhana) since the Sanskrit word ‘Swasthya’ – established in the Self – indicates that Self-realisation is the basis for perfect health. Ayurveda is practised to attain complete health in the four pursuits of human life, Dharma- righteousness, Artha-wealth, Kama-pleasure and Moksha-liberation.
Life is an opportunity for all of us to evolve and we know how important is the factor ‘Good health’ in our life and in the journey of evolution.
In Maitreyi treatments are not only limiting itself to medicines or to the physical level – Ayurveda mentions there is always an element of Rajo Guna of Mind in the cause of diseases. Therefore we give importance to the factor mind and help the patient to recognise the root of the problem and advise the way to solve it.

Inspiration & Revival
Ayurveda, the science of life, stems from the Vedic civilization of India and stands as the most ancient and comprehensive health system in the world. The term Ayurveda combines two Sanskrit words – ‘Ayu:’ which means life, and ‘Veda’ which means knowledge or science.
Ayurveda, based on the timeless knowledge for enlivening the unlimited inner intelligence of mind and body has been practiced in India since thousands of years; it has been passed on from generation to generation as an oral tradition and later, also in the written form. Since in the last few centuries the holistic approach of Ayurveda became lost, even in India in many places a fragmented form has been practiced in recent times.
At the end of the 1970s the Indian sage Maharishi Mahesh Yogi inspired and initiated the revival of Ayurveda. Under his guidance a number of India’s most renowned and experienced Ayurvedic physicians, came together to share their knowledge to integrate the proven methods of the various family traditions and to restore the science of Ayurveda to its original wholeness.
In addition to this the guardians of long held secret formulas and procedures in many traditional Ayurvedic families were motivated by Maharishi to share their wisdom for the first time. By now Ayurveda has spread throughout the world and is recognized and practiced worldwide as a unique, holistic and most profound health system.
