RESIDENTIAL AYURVEDIC TREATMENT IN INDIA
Rasa Ayurveda Traditional Healing Centre for Women was founded by Niika Quistgard in 2007 to serve women– from East and West– who feel called to receive traditional treatment, who are ready to restore their health, revitalize their happiness, clarify their life purpose and meet life with beauty, intelligence, authenticity, joy, and strength. Located in Kerala, India, Rasa Ayurveda offers Ayurvedic treatment in a simple, traditional environment in a local, non-tourist neighborhood. Coming to Rasa Ayurveda is a perfect way to experience true Ayurveda, be cleansed and nourished on every level and get to know the ‘real India’ first-hand, while enjoying safe, clean surroundings.
THERAPEUTIC ESSENTIAL OILS
Floracopeia was founded by David Crow, who has partnered with Niika Quistgard many times to offer educational immersions in Ayurvedic Aromatherapy. Floracopeia is recognized as a reliable marketer of sustainably grown and produced oils, sourced from all over the world.
NATURALLY SUPPORTED ELIMINATION
In India, squatting for elimination is the norm,
and I have noticed that once women from Western cultures live with an Indian toilet for a few weeks, they wish they had one at home!
The “Squatty Potty” is a specially designed stool placed in front of a western-style toilet to allow elimination from a squatting position. This setup actually gives “the best of East and West,” as the user may sit on the toilet seat, which is not possible in traditional Indian-style squatting, as well as draw the knees up toward the chest to ease bowel movements without straining, which cannot be done safely on a Western-style water closet.
There is certainly more to healthy elimination than body position, and Ayurveda has much to offer, such as personalized dietary recommendations, herbal support and more. Still, the “Squatty Potty” is a worthwhile and affordable bathroom addition. Click here to check out a short video explaining the benefits of the “Squatty Potty.”
