Kaya Kalpa Chikitsa is a progeny of Ayurveda, a holistic approach to science of healing. Kaya Kalpa has derived its name from the Sanskrit terms ‘Kaya’ means ‘body’ and ‘Kalpa’ means ‘transformation’ or ‘transmutation’.

This secret healing technique is being used in India for thousands of years by religious healers to rejuvenate and give longevity to royalty and holy sages.

Kaya Kalpa treatments reverse the effects of time and regenerate the entire body, mind and spirit.

When the body is not in harmony, it causes distress, disease and discomfort. Kaya Kalpa Therapy focuses on curing degenerative diseases and prolonging life by harmonizing the mind, body and psyche through:

  • Purification
  • Nourishment
  • Rejuvenation

Why is it essential

Changing lifestyles (lack of exercise, untimely food intake, unsuitable environment conditions and pollution) are seen in many young urbanites fall victim to perennial health problems like diabetes, hypertension,arthritis, osteoporosis, spondylosis, psychosomatic problems, stress and strain, etc. There has also been an alarming increase in the number of diseases and disorders caused by synthetic drugs, prompting a switchover to traditional medicine. The west has turned to “Mother nature knows best” philosophy and the east to the “Traditional Systems of Ayurveda and Siddha”.

Aim of Rejuvenation Therapy

The aim of Rejuvenation Therapy is to return youthfulness by rejuvenating each and every Dhatu or Tissue in the body and to maintain the normal level of Ojus.
