At the Ayurveda Klinik, the science of a long and healthy life is being applied at a high level. Ideal for people with pre-existing conditions setting great value upon Western academic medicine and wanting to do a panchakarma treatment, the Ayurveda Klinik is an autonomous division of the established Habichtswald Klinik and patients of the ayurveda ward may use all the facilities and offerings of the overarching clinic.
The Ayurveda Klinik views its mission not only in the therapy of diseases but just as much in the preservation of health. Hence, the traditional panchakarma treatment is being recommended for the healthy as well as the diseased. This particular treatment can be booked for a stay of 14 or 21 days, but shorter visits such as the 4-day introductory package or the 7-day fitness and weight reduction week are possible, too.
With a team of German certified doctors accompanied by skilled and very kind therapists, the clinic offers very good wholesome medical care. Careful and specific first anamnesis is standard as are daily visits of the doctor, round table discussions on the weekends, and written recommendations to take home for implementation of a healthy lifestyle back home.
According to various media sources, the Ayurveda Klinik asserts itself as Germany’s number one clinic from a medical point of view. Especially notable are the treatments for burnout syndrome, tinnitus and rheumatism offered here.
The practiced close collaboration of the Ayurveda Klinik with the medical units of the Habichtswald Klinik is unique within Europe. A patient having undergone a necessary oncological treatment for example, can be referred straight to the ayurvedic division with the goal of regeneration and corporeal removement.
Dr Ananda Samir Chopra, Indian-born German-licensed orthodox medical practitioner is in charge of managing the Ayurveda Klinik and the highly-qualified and dedicated work of its team. He is especially pleased when his patients comprehend the holistic importance of ayurveda and understand that it goes way beyond spa treatments.
Diet is one of the most important components of an ayurvedic treatment and is being treated accordingly at this clinic as a matter of course. Great consideration is applied to allergies and incompatibleness to certain foods. The kitchen prepares a diverse array of mostly lacto-vegetarian dishes. Cutting some slack is the substantial brunch buffet that is served in the mornings and allows for compromises of bread and cheese.
For an additional fee, it is possible to book an ayurvedic cooking course that comes with a small cooking book for a continuous healthy lifestyle at home.
Easy yoga classes are being taught in the mornings, Monday through Friday, and there are advanced yoga classes twice weekly on the afternoon. The yoga classes are being taught by several teachers and the program is under the supervision of Marlene Dietz, a yoga teacher who also offers private sessions here. Additionally, patients can participate in a weekly mantra chanting session and other courses of meditation, e.g. light or heart meditation.
The Ayurveda Klinik provides small, simple, clean, and functional rooms as accommodation.
About the area: Kassel
The clinic presents itself almost majestically with an adjoining beautiful park peacefully situated close to forests amidst the largest mountain park of Europe. The state-approved climatic spa town Wilhelmshöhe itself is rather placid but it is part of the larger and culturally interesting city Kassel.
