Outlook Traveller's Guide to Wellness Holidays in India is a 512-page guide to the vast range of health and wellness options ranging from luxury spas to austere meditation courses in our country. If you have a chronic health problem, are tired or stressed-out, feel the need to get away from everyday life, or just want a relaxing healing holiday-with-a-difference, this book is for you. Spread over 44 chapters, and various 'experience' pieces and Special Features, the book gives an introduction to five facets of wellness: Spas, Ayurveda, Naturopathy and Holistic Healing, Yoga and Meditation. It narrates first-hand experiences of writers undergoing Spa massages, checking in for Kerala Ayurveda or Naturopathy treatments, or joining Yoga and Meditation courses. The places covered range from luxurious and expensive to simple and affordable. Accommodation, meals, course-costs and tariffs, as well as the reputation of the institutes, their promoters, teachers or therapists, are discussed in detail. The guide seeks to be a rich and enjoyable mix of serious holistic-health regimes, massages for fun, and information on less-known alternative therapies such as Pranic Healing or Reiki. The book does not tell the reader how to cure himself of any particular ailment and does not try to be a substitute for a doctor. But it does introduce the reader to the amazing variety of destinations in India, which offer an improved sense of well being and guide us to better and healthier ways of living.
