Ayurveda center opens in Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi: A registered Ayurveda center that will provide alternative and complementary treatment for chronic conditions has opened in Abu Dhabi, a media report said last week.

Staffed by a 10-member team, including registered Ayurvedic doctors, the center named ‘Vaidhyashala’ aims to integrate conventional medicine with Ayurvedic sciences that originated in India, the Gulf News reported.

The center was officially inaugurated by Kumar Bayyapu, Deputy Chief of Mission at the Indian Embassy in Abu Dhabi.

Shyam Vishwanathan, head of ‘Vaidhyashala’, said the Ayurvedic treatments offered will supplement treatment through traditional medicine for complaints like back pain, arthritis, autoimmune conditions like psoriasis, allergies and gynecological concerns.

“Ayurveda, which has been recognized as a curative treatment in the UAE since 2002, is effective at treating a number of such concerns and we are happy to partner with a registered clinic,” he said.

The Ayurveda clinic at Burjeel Day Surgery Centre is fitted with six therapy rooms and a number of consultation chambers. It  will offer abhyangam (traditional Ayurvedic body massage), thala pothichil (head massage), tharpanam (treatment for the eyes), ayurvedic facial and other packages. It will also provide programs for weight loss, post-natal care, detox therapies and lifestyle modification.
