A Vacation for Body and Soul

To the question, “What is the greatest immaterial luxury?” more and more often the answer is “time”, especially for very active and professionally committed people. When the perspective is expanded, the answer changes to “health”.

Health has its source in a person’s harmony with himself and his nature – this is the core conception behind Ayurveda.Not Trivandrum, India, but rather Traben-Trarbach on the Moselle River is the site of the Parkschlösschen Bad Wildstein. It is the most exclusive address for Panchakarma treatment and is the only entirely Ayurveda hotel with five stars in Europe. Situated in the middle of an impressive 11-acre park, the art nouveau chateau seems far away from routine, stress and turmoil.The treatment is a combination of gentle detoxification with harmonising synchron-massages, cleansing steam baths, and an equalising diet. As a rule, nine days are sufficient to see results. The skin is smooth, the eyes clear, the senses are sharpened, and you feel greater all-around sense of well-being and regeneration. The detoxification, the resulting recuperation, and the newly-won vitality are lasting. The Parkschlösschen is not a wellness hotel with a massage department; rather it is a health centre on the highest level with a holistic, professional concept and intensiv medical care.After the first visit, many of the guests decide to repeat the Panchakarma treatment once a year. To them, the small time investment is apparently worth it for sending their body and soul on vacation.
