Falcon Tours and Travels

Imagine a resort where less is really more. No air-conditioning or television or nightclubs. Just a mirror, held up to an age old culture and a living harmony. This is the tribal village, reborn for the modern traveler. Wait for a clear, clear day.

Then, wherever you might be in God's own country, just look high to the east, above and beyond the paddy fields and the palm tops. Pitched and standing like pavilions against the horizon will be rows of faint blue smudges, fading into the sky.

These are the highlands of Kerala, and they are another world. A few hours inland from the coast are places of cool mists and sun-dappled, silent valleys, home to vast plantations of teak, cardamom, tea, rubber and coffee. Home also, to an astonishing biodiversity, preserved today in some fine wildlife sanctuaries.

AYURVEDIC PACKAGES
Falcon Tours and TravelsAnti Ageing - Rasayana Chikitsa (28 Days)
Aims at keeping the enzymes in the tissue cells in their normal functioning condition. The cells are revitalized and their composition is changed. The nerves and bones are kept soft and smoothened; tranquility of the mind is promoted. This prevents the process of ageing and makes the individual free from diseases even at an advanced age. In this Anti aging programme, the first 2 weeks are reserved for a cleansing treatment to eliminate the toxins. Then, the rejuvenation treatments start, with medicines and diet. Our programme is based on the prime treatment in Ayurveda for reducing the aging processes, arresting the degeneration of the body cells and increasing the immunity of the system.

Falcon Tours and TravelsAnti Stress Programme - Manasanthy (14 Days)
It is a proven fact that the mind plays an important role in governing not just the actions we take, but their qualitative nature, i.e., how well or badly we act. Anything which manipulates the mind will thus reflect on the body. People facing a lot of stress from their hectic lives thus end up with not only mental, but a host of physical problems too, usually called 'lifestyle diseases'
Ayurveda, combined with Yoga offers the perfect answer for this. At Spice Village, we've developed a special 7 to 14 days programme called 'Manasanthy', based on these two ancient systems of wellness.

Falcon Tours and TravelsGeneral Rejuvenation - Pancha Karma (21 - 28 Days)
Panch karma is the classic 5-point revitalization treatment that's gaining worldwide fame these days. Although Panchakarma is often thought of as the entire procedure, it really is one part of a group of therapies belonging to a class of cleansing procedures called 'Sodhana'
At Spice Village, the Panchakarma process is more intensive, following closely the early texts of Ayurveda like the Charaka Samhita and the Sushruta Samhita

Falcon Tours and TravelsSlimming Programme - Thaulyakna Chikilsa (21 - 28 Days)
Diet pills lower the body's fat set points by speeding up the organism, making both body and brain work faster. This increases Vata, which makes both body and mind crave for more sweets to balance.
Ayurveda believes in speeding up organism in healthy natural ways, with treatments to increase fat metabolism, exercise, herb-based diet supplements and the use of light non-Kapha producing foods, which control Vata while relieving the system of excess Kapha.
In Spice Village, there is a programme for 28 days including yoga, which assures you of genuine metabolic change.

Soundarya - Beauty Care Programme (10 Days)
According to Ayurveda, beauty is not just limited to attractive physical features or a slim and trim body figure but it also includes a healthy mental and spiritual state. This inner beauty is necessary, if the outer appearance is to be preserved. Soundarya programme emphasizes this. Herbal-based facial scrubs and lotions are selected according to the Dosha predominance. These rejuvenate the cells and remove wrinkles. Rejuvenative herbal preparations are used to re-animate the skin with regular massage.
