Health Spas: The salubrious Raj Health Spa is among the foremost specialist worldwide in offering Maharishi Ayurveda treatments and massage therapy. Maharishi Ayurveda is a holistic and natural approach toward preventative healthcare that was developed in India more than 6,000 years ago. The principles are based upon the theory that people have their own individual body types and natural healing systems. The health spa, which is located in Fairfield, Iowa, opened in 1993. The Raj Health Spa has been featured on CBS, NBC, ABC, and CNN. Publications such as Newsweek, the NY Times, the L.A. Times, the Wall Street Journal, and Time magazine are but a few of the sources touting the value of this unique Vedic-based health system.
The center is both an enlightening and a therapeutic experience for those who are seeking a better understanding of their body and metabolism. A special Maharishi Rejuvenation program is designed for all visitors. Guests usually come for specific treatments, such as anti-aging, weight loss, toxin detoxification, or chronic pain, as there are more than 25 ailments that are treatable at the luxury-spa resort. A typical day includes receiving two to three hours of treatments, eating specially prepared meals, and listening to expert speakers elaborate on the benefits derived from the Ayurveda experience. Yoga classes also are offered. The staff-to-guest ratio is three to one.
The 36,000-square-foot Vedic-architecture complex sets on 100 of Iowa's finest pastoral acres. It is a serene setting that is ideal for relaxing, replenishing, and discovering how a few simple changes in exercise, diet, and daily routines can enrich one's physical and mental wellbeing tenfold. Participants are urged to hike the trails and pathways on the grounds.
There are more than 3 million people tuned into the Maharishi Ayurveda treatments offered at the Raj. The New York Times listed it as one of the four recommended silent/meditative retreats. The Los Angeles Times listed the center as one of the seven recommended Ayurveda centers in the United States.
A vacation of discovery awaits those seeking a New Age adventure at the Raj Health Spa.
