The Secret to Longevity and Health
The overall design of the Anti-Aging program is to enliven the body's inner intelligence and thereby restore balance to the fundamental modes of physiological and psychological functioning. These fundamental modes or forms of intelligence in Maharishi Ayurveda are termed Vata, Pitta, and Kapha.
The secret to successful aging is to keep Vata, Pitta, and Kapha in balance. Longevity and health can be augmented by supporting Kapha, thereby increasing lubrication and stability, and by decreasing Vata thereby decreasing dryness, unsettledness, and disruption of mind and body.
In the later years, the element or mode of Vata, with its quality of motion and dryness, becomes predominant. With time, the mind and body have a tendency to become more unsettled, dry and less flexible. These tendencies greatly increase the likelihood of disease, including insomnia, anxiety, stroke and dementia.
Ayurveda Health Consultation
An Ayurveda Health Consultant trained in Maharishi Ayurveda will start your Anti-Aging program using the ancient assesment technique of Pulse Diagnosis. This helps determine the specific imbalances, many of which may be asymptomatic, in your physiology. This individual diagnosis is a powerful tool for designing the specific aspects of your treatment program.
You will experience the relaxation and rejuvenating influences of two and a half hours of specialized treatments per day. These programs include an individually determined set of Maharishi Rejuvenation treatments such as Abhyanga, Shirodhara, Pizzichili, and Nasya, which help counteract the age-related “drying” effects of age by “lubricating” the brain.
1) Herbalized Oil Application (Abhyanga)
This is a comprehensive and soothing oil massage carried out by a synchronized team of two technicians. The oil application uses herbalized oils recommended to suit your individual needs. The treatment promotes the penetration of nourishing oil deep into the tissues so that impurities are loosened and separated from the cell structure.
2) Relaxation Treatment (Shirodhara)
A soothing, continuous flow of herbalized oil poured slowly and gently across the forehead settles and balances the nervous system. The effect is delightful, and many guests experience profound relaxation during the treatment.
3) Full-Body Herbalized Oil Massage (Pizzichili)
A warm, soothing stream of herbalized oil is used to bathe the entire body, settling agitation in vata, balancing the nervous system and providing a deeply relaxing experience.
4) Nasal Treatment
In Ayurveda, the nose is considered the gateway to the brain. The purpose of Nasya therapy is to remove impurities from your head via the nasal passages. This treatment features an herbalized oil application to your head and face followed by the inhalation of herbalized steam. A localized heat treatment and various herbal preparations are then administered through the nasal passages, purifying the head area and bringing increased clarity to the brain physiology. This treatment is also helpful for chronic sinusitis, allergies and other problems from the head and neck areas.
Other Aspects of the Anti-Aging Program
An individualized set of herbs will be recommended to improve brain function and circulation, reduce oxidative stress and promote natural rhythms of activity and sleep.
Health education courses and guest lecturers will provide a cutting edge understanding of the process of aging as well as of the treatments and methods used to restore balance. The Raj has a large library of videotapes on subjects related to treatment, health and rejuvenation.
Daily yoga classes will provide soothing physical activity during treatment. The integrative exercises will augment the effect of the lovely walks available in the beautiful meadows and woods surrounding the facility.
Generally twice a week The Raj Head Chef will provide cooking classes to help you learn how to practically apply the knowledge of Ayurveda food preparation.

Early and holistic intervention is vital to promoting health and longevity. This is particularly true of Alzheimer’s disease.“The disease may develop several diseases before the onset of symptoms…” National Institute of Aging, 2001-2002 Progress Report on Alzheimer’s Disease.
