With modern-age therapies occupying modern-day spas, Naad Wellness circles back to treatments of yesteryear. By Bayar Jain
Located in the National Capital Region (NCR), the 39-room Naad Wellness centre offers respite from life’s daily hustle. When you enter, towering French windows greet you with abundant natural light, and interpretations of the Chinese philosophy of Yin-Yang can be observed within the interiors.
Rooted in the ancient principles of Ayurveda, yoga, and naturopathy, each therapy here aims to restore balance to your five senses. Beginning with one-on-one consultations with resident physicians, the curated medical experiences heal the body, mind, and spirit from within.
This idea of finding permanent cure is at the core of Nikhaar by Naad, a holistic well-being approach that includes skincare, haircare, yoga, and fitness routines. It focusses on complete detox and balancing the three doshas—vata, pitta, and kapha—the body’s governing bio-energies.
Therapies such as Shashtika Shali Pinda Sweda—a ritual which uses heated rice and milk boluses to cure osteoarthritis, joint pain, and stiffness; Udhwarthanam—a cellulite reducing, obesity-controlling, and immunity-enhancing organic herbal powder scrub; and Sarvanga Ksheeradhara—an Ayurvedic milk-based cooling therapy for insomnia, elevate the experience.
Ayurveda permeates their other experiences as well, whether you get an Abhyanga—a medicated oil based full-body rejuvenation, or Shiroabhyanga—a massage focussing on the head and neck. Pair this with a Salt Glow Massage and Herbal Hair and Face Packs to reach the epitome of wellness. Adding to the vast therapy list is their recreation of a Himalayan Salt Cave. Based on the principle that salts become more active when heated and dried, the salt cave here allows one to inhale these microparticles while letting them permeate through the skin. This not only helps balance the skin’s pH levels and remove allergens from the lungs, but also stimulates cell growth. A holistic approach to wellness is the best kind.
“I want to thank the entire Naad family for being so nice and wonderful. It was amazing. I feel rested, recharged, and grounded in just three days. They make you feel like your body and soul are the only temple you need to worship.” – Mehak Oberoi, celebrity make-up artist.
