Ananda introduces traditional Oriental therapies to its wellbeing programmes

The programmes will incorporate traditional Indian wellness sciences of Ayurveda, yoga and meditation with acupuncture, cupping, moxibustion Tibetan Kuu Nye, Kundalini and Japanese Shiatsu

Ananda in the Himalayas as recently introduced a range of traditional oriental therapies. These techniques will play a vital role in enhancing the effectiveness of the brand’s holistic wellbeing programmes. The programmes will incorporate traditional Indian wellness sciences of Ayurveda, yoga and meditation and Oriental therapies such as acupuncture, cupping, moxibustion, Tibetan Kuu Nye, Kundalini and Japanese Shiatsu. Together, they are among the oldest systems of preventive healing in the world.

Acupuncture, cupping, moxibustion and herbal applications will be conducted by holistic expert Dr Jitender Uniyal. These therapies address a wide variety of issues including chronic pain and migraines, immune enhancement, disease prevention, anxiety, depression, health maintenance and rehabilitation. The treatment modality includes use of five basic methods of diagnosis in the initial assessments: inspection (looking), auscultation (listening), olfaction (smelling), inquiry (asking), and palpation (touching). They deduce poor health to be a result of systemic imbalances of the yin and yang forces due to the result of blocked energy that flows through the fourteen meridians of the body. Intensive therapies are then used to correct or balance its flow.

With 20 years of experience, Dr Uniyal is one of India’s foremost specialists in alternative healing. A doctor and professor of Traditional East Asian therapies, he specialises in acupuncture, moxibustion and cupping. He brings with him a diverse range of experiences and has worked extensively in Europe, Canada, Sri Lanka and India. He is also a graduate of Ayurveda and Reiki, along with other healing modalities which provides unique perspective in diagnosing and treating chronic health and wellbeing issues. Dr Uniyal has conducted research in Himalayan medicine and the combined use of acupuncture with other forms of medicine in treatment of various issues. 

“In my decades of experience, I have had remarkable success with these ancient wellness techniques. I treat not just the physical symptoms, but also go in-depth into the emotional energy of the person. More often than not, our own traits, when in excess, cause imbalances in the body. For example, excess grief tends to affect the lungs, excess anger causes toxin accumulation in the liver, excess fear affects the kidney function and so on. I make an initial diagnosis from a facial analysis, following up with a pulse diagnosis of both the hands simultaneously, and then decide the treatment process,” said Dr Uniyal.

The new Ananda Rebalance wellness programme addresses hormonal balance, specifically for menopause in women and also to address changes in testosterone and other hormones in men. The reasons for imbalances could be due to unbalanced lifestyle, poor diet, medications, health issues, synthetic chemicals, or toxins in the body. Acupuncture, cupping and moxibustion can help treat the hormonal imbalance causing heat to rise in the body, stimulate the central nervous system, releasing pain-relieving chemicals, like endorphins, alleviating aches associated with menopause, alter neurotransmitters in the brain to alleviate anxiety and nervousness. Acupuncture and moxibustion are found to be effective at treating chronic fatigue syndrome.
