ISHAVILAS – LUXURY WELLNESS IN GOA

Busy schedules, constantly refreshing feeds, cars honking in traffic and the smog of pollution filtered through the occasional sea breezes of the big bad city. This is the Mumbai life I have grown accustomed to; fun, chaotic, wild, neurotic, exciting, and draining all at once. 

Living in a chaotic city environment like Mumbai, it becomes absolutely essential to occasionally retreat into nature and indulge in therapies that rejuvenate my body, mind and spirit. I jumped at the opportunity to visit Dr. Ali’s Time Reversal Centre at Ishavilas in Goa recently; and enjoy some of their renowned Ayurvedic treatments. Originally designed as a home, the quest for wellness has seen the property evolve into a luxury spa space with two swimming pools, treatment rooms and luxury suites. All staffed with a professional team that takes hospitality very seriously.

I experienced Dr. Mosaraf Ali’s famous Neck Connection and Marma Point treatment. Both massages were healing, restorative and memorable. The neck connection treatment, even as it was taking place, I remember, felt like it was lifting away all the stress, weight and tension that had been stored in my upper back, shoulders and neck. The weight of the entire city and my constant use of technology was gently massaged away by a specially trained therapist. Post the treatment, I felt energized and refreshed for the rest of the day!

The Marma Point massage is an ancient physical therapy which has been used by martial arts practitioners to treat various types of injuries. It has been specifically modified by Dr. Ali to stimulate the nervous system, improve blood flow to various parts of the body and to revitalize muscles. It involves the application of concentrated force in special points across the body, which at times during the massage was slightly painful. However, the Marma Point massage left my body feeling lighter and my breath feeling deeper. And the surge of energy I experienced after the massage was definitely worth that little bit of pain.

For anyone looking to get a detox from the city, and to blend nature, treatments and an idyllic ambience to rejuvenate, I highly recommend both these treatments at Ishavilas. Check out their website here for more information http://ishavilaswellness.com/
