What you see - Started by HP Joshi Ventures in 2005, Arogyam (means health and wellness in Sanskrit) is a franchise of the famed Balaji Tambe Atmasantulan Ayurved. They have a tie-up with Santulan Ayurved for Ayurvedic medicines as well.
We visited their Koregaon branch which is a huge clean place comprising six massage rooms with steam boxes and equipment, along with a yoga/meditation hall and a waiting hall.
What you get - They have around 48 Ayurvedic therapies and 400 types of medicines for ailments and relaxation purposes. Under the guidance of Balaji Tambe, therapists and doctors are well-trained here. For serious ailments, Balaji Tambe looks into it personally.
They have an array of rejuvenating and therapeutic massages too. You could opt for Deluxe Abyanga Mardan (Rs. 1,250) which is a 60-minute massage along with 15 minutes of steam bath. It is a gentle but firm full body massage that relieves from stress, anxiety and exertion. The massages are done with a special medicated oil applied only to the marma points (energy points).
If you suffer from dust allergies or sinusitis you could try the Nasya (Rs. 400) or the nasal therapy. This is said to help in clearing the nostrils and reduces headaches, anger depression etc. They also have a treatment called Karnapuram (Rs. 400) recommended for the ears of call center employees or telephone operators. It is said to enhance the sense of hearing. They also have a Netra Basti (Rs. 500) for eyes and Foot Bowl Therapy (Rs. 400). Popular Ayurvedic treatment like Shirodhara (Rs. 700) and Kundalini are there too.
For the beauty-conscious they have herbal face pack (Rs. 300) and full body rice massage (Rs. 1,600). They also have a one-day relaxation massage of three hours for Rs. 2,600 which includes Deluxe full body Abhyanga, Nasya, Foot Reflex, Foot Bowl and Shirodhara. They also have yoga classes conducted here on alternate days which costs Rs. 100 per session. For check-ups or medical queries they have a doctor as well.
Our verdict – Massages for men and women are done by specialists from the same gender. You could purchase medicines and oils of the Santulan Ayurved here too. They also have a retreat at Varasgaon backwaters where one can avail fantastic packages individually or as a corporate.
