Chronic Pain Management at Ananda in the Himalayas


Chronic Pain Management at Ananda in the Himalayas

Escape to the Himalayan Foothills overlooking the spiritual town of Rishikesh and the Ganges river valley. Begin your journey to reduced pain at one of the best luxury wellness retreats in the world.

This fully individualised treatment plan delves into identifying and treating the source of pain through physiotherapy, ayurvedic therapies, stress-relieving yoga and an anti-inflammatory diet. The program takes a comprehensive approach to reduce pain, enhance mobility of stiff joints and boost physical functions in order to achieve results.

An introductory 5-night program would be suitable for those who have experienced 2-4 years of discomfort or non-chronic conditions. Muscular pain is treated with specialised physiotherapy sessions and ayurvedic therapies with advice for ongoing management.

A 7-night comprehensive program is designed for non-degenerative conditions and musculoskeletal trouble that has been a concern for 5-6 years; using physiotherapy and ayurvedic treatments that involve manipulation of the soft tissues to relieve tension, spasms and stress and anti-rheumatic yoga sessions to release stiff joints and reduce pain.

The 14-night program is ideal for those with six years of ongoing pain or a neurological and neuro-muscular pain. Physiotherapy will mobilise the joints, induce relaxation, alleviate pain, reduce soft tissue swelling and inflammation.

Individualised exercises are completed with expert guidance along with a routine for continued management at home; this is specially aimed towards people with chronic conditions such as fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis and chronic neck and lower back pain.
