India's Ancient Healing Sciences

India is home to not just one, but three major healing disciplines. These are the sister disciplines of Siddha Medicine and Ayurveda, followed by Yoga, and Marma Chikitsa or the science of tapping into the body’s energy meridians for healing. Kerala has emerged as the hub for Ayurveda. Rishikesh is the main centre for Yoga. India’s ancient healing sciences have stood the test of time for over 6,000 years.
