Conceive, spring 2010
More and more spas these days are offering a lot more than massages and mud baths. Many are also offering fertility-boosting treatments that range from acupuncture to fertility yoga. And that's not all. An increasing number of fertility and wellness centers across the country are creating spa-like settings and adding spa treatments to their menus of options. So women (or couples) who have tried unsuccessfully to conceive -and who may be a bit stressed from the effort- may appreciate a spa getaway with benefits. By Karen Edwards
This well-appointed Ayurvedic health spa offers an in-resident fertility treatment program that includes a 55-minute herbal oil application and massage, followed by one of several possible heat treatments and an herbal colonic to complete the detoxification and purification process believed necessary for a healthy reproductive system.
Ayurveda is a system of holistic healing based on traditional Indian medicine. The Raj's program offers a very individualized fertility treatment plan based on these principles.
