Ayurvedic Stress And Anxiety Program

The Raj Program for Stress and Anxiety, based on the science of Maharishi Ayurveda, provides a comprehensive and natural approach to stress reduction. Stress can affect all aspects of life, including our emotions, behavior, thinking ability, and physical health. Stress is known to be a contributing factor in a countless variety of chronic disorders, yet its influence can be easily overlooked.

From an Ayurvedic perspective, both the mind and body must be in balance to experience optimal health. Anything that upsets that balance creates a disruption our normal functioning. Along with powerful Ayurvedic rejuvenation and detoxification therapies to remove the damaging effects of stress, The Raj offers yoga and breathing exercises, as well as optional mediation classes, as effective stress reduction tools.

The multi-modality Ayurvedic approach to stress reduction can help you regain creativity, dynamism, clarity and efficiency, along with emotional stability and increased effectiveness in daily life.

Frequently Asked Questions

In Ayurvedic terms, stress is related to the balance: balance in one of the three vital energies, or “doshas” (Vata, Pitta and Kapha), balance in how we live our lives, balance in what and how we eat and digest our food, balance in our emotions, balance in how we think and act. According to Ayurveda, both the mind and body must be in balance to achieve optimal health. Therefore, anything that upsets that optimal balance contributes to ill health.

At the heart the programs at The Raj are the powerful Ayurvedic rejuvenation and purification therapies, called Panchakarma.

These luxurious, transforming treatments help remove stress and impurities, restoring balance to the physiology. Each day you’ll spend soothing hours in a variety of treatments, including herbalized oil massage, cleansing steam baths and gentle purification procedures. Our professional and caring staff will guide you through every step, while you simply relax and enjoy. As balance is restored, guests experience a more energetic physiology, a clearer mind and growing inner happiness.

The Raj offers additional tools of yoga, optional mediation classes and breathing exercises (pranayama) to help support and maintain balance on all levels of life.

Stress and Anxiety can lead to chronic diseases such as heart disease, stroke, immune disorders, and even cancer. Stress can also negatively affect judgment, decision-making, alertness, creativity, and emotional balance. Chronic stress has been known to cause increased conflict and aggression.

In just a few days at The Raj Ayurveda Health Spa, gain deep rest and relaxation, recover from stress and anxiety, rejuvenate, and learn natural effective stress management techniques for your day-to-day life.

If you experience any of the following stress symptoms, you may be suffering from stress disorder, or ‘burnout’

  • Low energy, easily fatigued
  • Poor memory and concentration
  • Poor sleep quality, not waking up refreshed
  • Anxious, restless, difficult to relax
  • Low motivation, bored or depressed

Stress disorder or ‘burnout’ develops gradually and insidiously. Signs of stress overload:

  1. Continuing psychological and emotional problems
  2. Teeth grinding
  3. Digestive problems
  4. Gastritis or ulcers
  5. Headaches
  6. High blood pressure, strokes
  7. Diabetes
  8. Heart disease
  9. Exhaustion, chronic fatigue

In addition to rejuvenating Panchakarma treatments, The Raj offers additional stress-busting tools of yoga, and breathing exercises (pranayama) to help support and maintain balanced health.

Ayurveda and Yoga are sister sciences that synergistically complement one another, increasing each other’s benefits. The Raj offers guests a daily Yoga class, with a simple set of postures that are appropriate for beginners as well as experienced practitioners. Regular practice of these postures can help eliminate stress, develop flexibility, improve sleep, balance digestion, and deepen the experience of silence and expansion of consciousness.

Modern medical research supports this ancient prescription of yoga and breathing exercises. The yoga and breathing exercises increase serotonin and endorphins, neurotransmitters that are well known to improve mood. They are also found to increase circulation to the brain and to produce hormones that are beneficial to mental health.

Practicing yoga and breathing exercises also act as a preparation for a deeper experience during meditation, promoting balance in mental and emotional functioning and supporting increased physical well-being.

We recommend that you learn the Transcendental Meditation® (TM®) technique as an adjunct to your stress relief program at the Raj.

TM is a simple, effortless technique that produces profound benefits indicative of both mental and physiological balance. It has been shown to be an effective tool for reducing chronic anxiety and overall stress. In fact, the (TM®) technique was found to be twice as effective as other techniques for stress and anxiety, according to a Stanford University study. The study was a meta-analysis of 146 independent studies, and was published in the Journal of Clinical Psychology.

The effectiveness of the Transcendental Meditation program has been validated by over 600 scientific studies conducted at more than 200 independent research institutions in 30 countries. These include 368 peer- reviewed studies that have been published in top scientific journals.

Instruction in TM can easily be added to any in-resident treatment package. Please note that classes are not included in the in-residence package price.

I came to The Raj stressed and imbalanced. After 5 days of treatments, I left calm, and relaxed, with more positivity and energy. A transformation like this rarely occurs in 5 days.

Mark B.

No more pains in stomach, headaches, tension and noise in my head. Feel much more relaxed mentally & physically.


When I came to The Raj, I had many years of accumulated stress, constant headaches, pains in my joints, and I had become completely exhausted. After completing my Panchakarma treatments I feel wonderful and refreshed. I have no pain, no headaches, and I have renewed energy. This has been a truly wonderful, thoroughly beneficial experience. Life changing.

Karuna Eve Nichols

When I came to The Raj, my anxiety and stress levels had really increased. Following the specialized treatments, the nourishing and delicious meals, and much needed quiet time, I feel more refreshed and calmer. My mind is more quiet and settled, with a decrease in the urgent and obsessive thinking, and less “tic” movements.
