 The main focus of this establishment is the range of alternative medical treatments that it offers to its residents. A team of professionally trained doctors and medical workers offer a great array of healing methods and alternative treatments; which include Ayurveda & Panchakarma, Homeopathy, Naturopathy, and Yoga.

Ayurveda - meaning “life science”, helps to restore the imbalance of the tridoshas (three humours). The managers at Soukya believe that Ayurveda is a very serious treatment, and should only be carried out by qualified doctors. However, when the ayurvedic oils and massages are applied correctly, the results can be very rewarding. A selection of the ayurvedic treatments that are available are detailed below:

 Padhabhyanga - a massage of the legs that improves circulation
• Shirodhara – a steady stream of oil applied to the body to relax the nervous system.
• Ellakizi – fomentation massage with a bundle of herbals leaves and powders, provides great relief to cases of rheumatism and other diseases.
• Ayurvedic Udvartanam – uses ayurvedic powders to reduce obesity and increase mobility.
• Ksheera Dooma – traditional Keralan ayurvedic treatment designed to relax the face muscles.
• Vasti – the use of ayurvedic oils and massages to treat back disorders and arthritic knees.

 Panchakarma – a treatment that detoxifies the body tissue of all harmful substances. The 5 point programmes aims to rid the body of the harmful substances that it absorbs on a daily basis.

Homeopathy – a system developed in Germany, this treatment uses only natural and herbal sources to treat a number of symptoms, by stimulating the body’s own healing power. Counselling services will enable you to determine your problem, and then treat it.
