In the ancient art of Ayurveda, it is believed that the cause of many issues physically, mentally, socially and even in relationships and spirituality is “Stress”. Without peace of mind or “Shanthi”, one cannot experience the joys of life. Here’s how Ayurveda seeks to heal this common problem.

Body & Mind

The Body & Mind are not two different elements. Rather, they are considered to be a reflection of each other. The source of most physical ailments are in the mind. Ayurvedic treatment for stress focuses on relaxing the nervous system and through this improving the relaxed state of the entire body.

Treatment for stress

Ayurveda treatment in Sri Lanka focused on relieving stress is ideal for those suffering from stress due to fast-paced lifestyles or work. For those with depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress, this may be helpful but not effective enough.


Stress relief ayurvedic therapy available will not be suitable for pregnant mothers, those with heart diseases and those dependent on drugs or alcohol.

Wellness breaks

If you are unable to be frequent with your stress relief therapies, consider taking a small break and indulging in a wellness holiday. Heritance Ayurveda and other hotels in Sri Lanka provide wellness facilities especially for travellers with this in mind.
