Take Years Off Your Life At This Himalayan Wellness Spa



Ashok Khanna was born into a family of eminent hoteliers in India. The founder of Ananda in the Himalayas, he traveled the length of India searching for a location that would embody the soul of Ananda and bring it to life. He finally found this in the foothills of the Himalayas, the birthplace of yoga, where people have gone for centuries to be healed and to find rest and rejuvenation. 

Since opening in 2001, Ananda has become a world-class wellness spa, adhering to ancient Indian virtues, representing holistic wellness for the mind, body and soul. Close to the mythological cities of Haridwar and Rishikesh, surrounded by graceful Sal forests, overlooking the peaceful Ganga River, Ananda incorporates local ingredients and rituals into their treatments.

Shilajeet is known for its ability to rejuvenate a cell by driving oxygen and nutrients into the cell and supporting the body’s natural antioxidant activity, whereby the body rids itself of free radicals. The nutrients in shilajeet also boosts energy in heart, liver and kidney cells. At Ananda Spa, the unique Shilajeet facial uses nerve point therapy that helps calm the nervous system by smoothing out the nerves, releasing the stress & tension within the face.

Shilajeet is a natural herbo-mineral harvested from the rocks high up in the Himalayas, and its usage benefits over-worked, anxious & tired skin. It includes medicinal humic and fulvic acids that improve energy production with cells. Said to take years off your life, it is worth the journey to Ananda just to find out.
