Ayurveda – something for you mind, your body and your soul. Within walking distance is one of the most renowned Ayuvedic healing resorts and spas in Sri Lanka. Barberyn Ayurveda Resorts has a range of treatments to relax, rejuvenate and balance those all-important doshas (body energies).
Ayurvedic massage is a deep tissue massage, superb once you get used to the amount of oil and wearing a loin cloth. Great for releasing any build-up of lactic acid in the muscles from a day of physical activity, also great for fixing those niggling sports injuries.
There is a bit of a gap between western understanding of toxicity and Ayuvedic medicine. Some products have been found to have a high concentration of heavy metals (lead, arsenic and mercury intentionally added). Best to bring your own multivitamins. If you are surfing all day you may find that additional calcium, zinc and vitamin c will give your body what it needs recover.
