Our Vision

Al Shifa believes in Holistic approach. We consider the whole human body as a whole entity rather than a conglomerate of many organs and systems. In our Spa we consider all aspects and traits of a guest before imparting the suitable treatment to him. Keeping this in mind a detailed history is taken regarding your health condition by qualified Doctors who are experts in the field of Ayurveda and Natural Medicine. Sometimes adjuvant alternative therapies like Natur ecure, Yoga, Acupuncture, Magneto therapy etc. also may be prescribed to you to make the treatments more potent.

At the heart of The Al Shifa programs are the profound treatment programs that help restore balance and reawaken the body’s natural healing mechanisms. But the treatments are only a part of a comprehensive approach to creating health. Guests at Al Shifa also gain an understanding of how all the various aspects of their lives are interrelated and contribute either positively or negatively to overall well being. Guests learn to understand how individual factors in their make-up affect physical tendencies, moods, cravings, motivation, and behavior. And guests learn how simple shifts in diet, exercise, and daily and seasonal routines can enhance their progress toward increased strength, stability and vitality.
