Gentle and holistic: Detoxing the Ayurvedic way
In Ayurveda, biochemical toxins are referred to as Ama. An accumulation of Ama adversely affects wellbeing, making us tired and sluggish. Ayurvedic medicine offers many ways to eliminate toxins, and an Ayurvedic detox programme may include:
Cleansing treatments such as gentle massages stimulate the lymphatic system and relieve water retention. Oil treatments – such as oil pulling, flowing oil treatments and oil massages – are also an essential component of detoxification, as the fats bind to the toxins and draw them out of the body. Toxins can also be gently eliminated using heat therapy, Ushnodaka therapy (drinking warm water) and nasal rinsing.
A light diet
A special fasting diet supports internal cleansing by relieving strain on the digestive system and strengthening gut function. We use our knowledge of Indian nutritional science and wisdom to create the optimal diet plan for detoxification.
Exercise boosts metabolism and is therefore an integral part of every detox programme. Take a walk in Styria’s hilly countryside or swim a couple of lengths in the healing thermal waters.
Mind detox with Yoga and meditation
Another central aspect of detoxification is letting go of emotional baggage. Daily Yoga sessions and meditation facilitate spiritual cleansing and lead to inner balance and harmonious wellbeing.

When is a detox programme recommended?
Many of today’s lifestyle diseases are the result of a frenetic and unhealthy way of life. Stress, poor diet and insufficient sleep all put a strain on body and mind. The resulting stress is signalled in a range of different symptoms:
All of these conditions can be significantly improved with a detox. Our bodies are equipped with organs, such as the liver, kidneys and skin, that eliminate toxins. However, these are often unable to deal with the build-up of environmental toxins and the negative effects of our modern lifestyles.
A detox programme assists the organs in flushing out toxins, freeing the body of harmful substances and setting its natural healing processes in motion.
Detox with home remedies
After a detox programme at our hotel, we recommend that you do not immediately relapse into your old lifestyle. Our Ayurvedic experts are available to help you with a diet plan and suggest simple ways to support your wellbeing at home.
With a few simple home remedies, you can integrate detoxification into your everyday life. Why not try:
A detox tea (for example nettle or dandelion tea)?
