Toxins continually accumulate in our bodies due to pollution, diet, cosmetics and other environmental factors, leading to lethargy, weight gain, illness and compromised health. Detoxification is all about resting the digestive system through controlled eating of whole foods, improving the circulation of the cardiovascular and lymphatic systems, stimulating the liver to filter toxins from the body, cleansing the digestive tract and nourishing the body with essential nutrients.

Ananda Spa’s 8-day Spa Detox Retreat’s ultimate goal is to detoxify both mind and body of harmful toxins and negative thoughts in a controlled and safe manner. The Ananda Spa Detox programme has been carefully designed to include stimulating and purifying dosha-specific ayurvedic therapies, yoga, meditation and a carefully created Ayurvedic diet to help detox, reduce stress and improve overall health. The healing process involves herbal medication, massage, and periodic liberation of toxins through two Sneha Vastis (enemas with medicated oils).

The 8-day spa program includes 4 AyurvedicTherapy sessions, 8 international therapy sessions, 3 cleansing therapies, 2 personal yoga sessions, 2 personal pranayama sessions, 1 personal meditation session. Therapies include: Abhyanga, Choornaswedana, detoxifying jet blitz shower, hydrotherapy, aromatic bath, detoxifying aromatherapy massage, detoxifying salt scrub, mountain dew skin freshener facial, detoxifying aroma cocoon, and earth stone massage.

  Uttarakhand, India

The Garhwal Himalayas are mountain ranges located in the state of Uttarakhand, India. The mountain ranges cross two regions: Garhwal division and Kumaon division. Garhwal Kingdom consisted of the present day Tehri Garhwal district and most of the Uttarkashi district. The region consists almost entirely of rugged mountain ranges running in all directions. It is separated by narrow valleys. The highest mountains are in the north, with principal peaks being Nanda Devi, Kamet, Trisul, Badrinath, Dunagiri, and Kedarnath. 

To get to Garhwal, one can easily get a bus from I.S.B.T Kashmeri Gate (Metro Station) in New Delhi to Kotdwar and Rishikesh.
