About Shanti Makaan Rishikesh

“Greetings from Rishikesh, home of ancient sages, the holy mother Ganges River and the Himalayas.”

Shanti Makaan (House of Peace), located in Jonk village, half way between the two famous suspension bridges (Ram Jhula and LaxmanJhula) that span the Ganges River in Rishikesh, is the ideal place to experience, learn and receive the benefits of the five thousand year old ayurvedic principles of natural wellness and healing.

Shanti Makaan is the inspiration of Dr Munnilal Maurya who had a clear vision of creating a wellness centre where the natural and peaceful atmosphere - rarely found in the ‘hectic’ present day - would complement and enhance these ancient Ayurvedic therapies.

The forested mountains of the Himalayan foothills provide a calming ‘green-ness’ throughout the property, where all seventeen en-suite rooms and relaxation areas enjoy magnificent and inspiring views.


During your stay, you would enjoy professional and individual care by our highly experienced and skilled on-site Ayurvedic doctor and a dedicated team of therapists and staff to make you feel comfortable in your Himalayan home.

Wellness Packages

Traditional Panchakarma therapy is felt to be most beneficial over a period of 30 days – but in today’s busy world this is not always practical or possible. Whilst still respecting the ancient traditions we have put together a number of packages that have proven to be effective, but obviously the longer the therapy the better the benefits. Some of our regular clients go for the full 30 day package but the majority opt for something less. A seven-day package will have some effect on your wellbeing, a fourteen day even more and so on. It is up to you to choose how much time and commitment you are going to invest in your health and wellbeing.

7 Days $550 | 14 Days $1000 | 21 Days $1400

Packages include all consultations and treatments; accommodation in either single or twin en-suite rooms; all meals (Ayurvedic vegetarian); daily yoga and meditation classes.

Panchakarma

7 Days $550   |   14 Days $1000   |   21 Days $1400

The objective of the Panchakarma wellness package is to promote a feeling of health and vitality by means of cleansing the body, clearing the mind and allowing the consciousness to take its rightful place in your life. The ‘five actions’ (Pancha – karma) helps to detoxify the body and strengthen the immune system, restore balance and well-being using the traditional five-fold therapy.

Following an Ayurvedic consultation with the doctor which is designed to determine the patient’s state of health and well-being, to discover any areas of concern, to investigate and determine the patient’s dosha - (Kapha, Pitta or Vata or a combination of two or even all three) a personalised treatment plan is devised for the period of the package.

Panchakarma treatments place a heavy emphasis on massage of the body using specially prescribed dosha specific oils – ayurvedic massage is not invasive and consists of long fluid strokes to encourage the expulsion of toxins from the body. The massage is followed by a ‘steam bath’ to encourage the pores of the skin to open and to release toxins.

Shirodhara – the drizzling of warm oil on to the forehead and crown promotes complete relaxation with the emphasis not being solely on the external, but also to encourage the mind to ‘let go’.

An internal cleansing program will be discussed during consultation and can consist of Vamana (herbal induced vomiting), Virechana (purgation by laxative) and Basti (herbal decoction or oil enemas) depending on the needs of the patient. Cleansing of the alimentary canal – from the upper gastro system through to the lower intestines has the added bonus of detoxifying the organs and restoring the functions of the body to optimal efficiency.

Cleansing of the sense organs includes Nasyam to clean the nasal tubes and sinuses, Netra Tarpan to clean the eyes, Karna Poorna for the ears and Kawal Gandoosh for the tongue.

Initially there may be some resistance from the body to the ‘new healthy regime’ but after a few days of light, freshly prepared Ayurvedic meals, a good supply of clean pure water and plenty of rest and a little light exercise the body begins to participate and relish in the healing process.
