Our History

Ayurveda is all about the intake of natural medicine provided by the earth’s elements. Shanta Ayurveda Hospital wishes to remove the misconception of Ayurvedaas just a massage. Rather, it deals with much more. It takes a holistic approach to an individual’s physical, mental & spiritual planes and heals them for a better life.
In this modern age, sufferings of people are due to numerous reasons. At a time when contemporary sciences appear to be failing to address these problems comprehensively, we are promoting a system which has always advocated a holistic approach in dealing with health-related problems
This led us to start a 24 bed Ayurvedic Hospital in collaboration with the Arya Vaidya Pharmacy (CBE) Ltd in the heart of Chennai.
We offer all kinds of Ayurvedic Panchakarma treatments including Kerala specialities such as Pizhichil, Navarakizhi, Podikhizi, Dhara, Kashayavasti& oil applications.

The philosophy of Ayurveda

The knowledge of life and longevity, Ayurveda, is perhaps the oldest existing body of knowledge on the healing system. This holistic and natural healing system was developed by highly evolved spiritual beings who not only addressed the problems of the body and mind but also of the human spirit and consciousness. This knowledge system, which is in perfect harmony with the Indian thought process and its origin, can be traced to the Vedas and does not aim to merely cure the disease syndrome. Instead, it looks to reharmonise the living body and restore it to its natural state of equilibrium.
Ayurveda goes far beyond being a mere system of medicine. It is a way of life, propounded specially for the upliftment of mankind. The original Ayurveda treatises give a comprehensive description of how to live one’s life in tune with nature, free of disease and illness. Ayurveda gives a graphic account of how the living body is only a microcosm, and nature and all the elements that exist in it, are reflected in the human body. This close interconnection with nature forms the basis for the indigenous thought process of Ayurveda. It is the foundation on which all the theories, principles and classifications of Ayurveda, are built.
Ayurveda teaches that health is maintained by the balance of the three functional mechanisms; know as Vata, Pitta and Kapha. All Ayurveda treatments are designed to return these forces to a harmonious balance rather than treat what their imbalance manifests. Thus, it focuses on causes rather than symptoms. Since each individual has their own particular physiological constitution, Ayurveda treats the individual and not the disease. Such an approach has proved to be highly effective through the centuries and consequently, many Ayurvedic healing regimens have been adopted and refined by people all over the world.
The Beginning

Our founder, the late Arya VaidyanP .V. Rama Varier, born in a distinguished and scholarly family in 1908, was a man of immense knowledge with great compassion and love for mankind. A humanitarian, philosopher, scholar and physician par excellence Varierstarted practicing Ayurveda after graduating from the Ayurveda College, Kottakkal. In 1943, he independently set out to propagate Ayurveda and establish the Arya Vaidya Pharmacy in Coimbatore. In 1959 he started an Ayurveda Hospital which is presently known as The Arya Vaidya Chikitsalayam and Research Institute.
