The Monsoons in Kerala do not take the pattern of incessant rains continuing for weeks. Virtually it rains for a few hours with sunny interludes. Occasionally the rains might stretch on for a few days but the respite of sunshine is never far away. People look forward to seeing the sun peep through the wet palm fronds and rain drenched green. These golden interludes provide an equilibrium to life’s natural flow.
However, the rainy season is the best time to experience the health benefits of India’s ancient art of ayurvedic medicine. This is because the cool, moist, and dust free atmosphere encourages the body’s pores to open up, making it particularly receptive to herbal oils and therapy. Hence, the months of June and July are best suited for administering ayurvedic treatments.
