神奇的古老“催眠术 ”阿育吠陀疗法 | 在斯里兰卡像公主一样旅行 (下篇)

世界上是没有什么可以衡量快乐,如果有的话,我在斯里兰卡的旅行一定超越了所有的衡量标准 —Maggie带你飞

我把闹铃设置在了7点,而我也恰好在这时醒来,天哪!这顿美觉是我在上海绝对没有体验过的。因为总有那么点东西让你不能早早的上床,安心入眠。这次嘛!是度假哦!
享用早餐的餐厅面向着泳池,当我期待这些美食的时候,那些认识我的大厨们早就为我准备好了早餐,这可是Dr Pad吩咐他们根据我的身体状况特别定制的早餐,感觉像公主一样。
这座酒店因为其沿海的地势和绵延的建筑设计吸引了一大批游客入住,也许这对那些喜欢隐私的游客来说不是那么吸引人,但这绝对适合我这种不太喜欢孤单,热爱晴朗的天气和热气笑脸的人。这里让我有更多机会交到新朋友,我太喜欢这种感觉了!
My alarms were set for 7 and that’s exactly when my eyes opened. Good sleep is a luxury I seldom experience in shanghai. There is always that worrying about the next day’s work which keeps me up late and the sleep quality too doesn’t compare. Then again, this is a holiday!
The breakfast restaurant faces the pool area. Just as I expected the food was a lavish spread with several live counters. The team of chefs who now knew me by name, were all set to impress me with some mouth -watering stuff.

This may not be the place if you expect to be the only person by the pool or in the restaurant. But this certainly is the place if u don’t like the idea of being too lonely and if you love a sunny day and happy faces. In no way did the presence of others,affect or spoil my holiday. What it did is it granted me lots of opportunities to make many more friends. It is what I love!

很快,就到了下午,是时候去做重磅推荐的阿育吠陀水疗了。这次水疗让我感觉很棒,并且各种细节我都了如于心,它集排毒和净化感官于一身,五官在水疗中都会得到全新的洗礼。我的精油已经准备好了,它们由草药和异域精油组成,能够提升我的身体机能。
五官的“清洗”,从我的视觉开始,也就是眼睛。治疗师耐心的跟我解释了步骤和其功效,之后,她将准备好的药水滴入我的眼睛。轻微的灼痛席卷而来,她说这能冲掉你眼中沉积的杂质和尘粒。
接下来到了嗅觉,她从我的鼻孔滴入两滴精油,让我深呼吸,这能带走在呼吸道淤积的痰液,让通道畅通,这对于我来说真的是一次全新的体验。
我感觉呼吸更加舒畅了,对了这对鼻窦炎也有好处哦!之后,她清洁了我的牙齿和牙龈,这能让我的味觉更加灵敏。
Soon, it was afternoon and time for my Spa appointment. It was superb and let me get on to the details of it. The plan is to detox and cleanse our senses. The sense of smell, taste, vision, touch and sound. My oils were being prepared and blended. These were a selection of herbs and exoticoils which would elevate the good functioning and state of my body.
The first sense to go through detox was the sense of vision. The therapist patiently explained me the process and its benefits. Then she gently poured drops of a liquid based liniment into my eyelids. A slight burning sensation and I was told it would flush out the impurities and dust particles that may have settled there.
Then we moved on the sense of smell, she instilled two drops of oil in my nostril and asked me to inhale deeply. This enables removal of phlegm from the respiratory channels andclear the pathways of breathing and smelling things. This was a totally new experience for me.
But I could feel like something just made breathing easy and smoother than before. Furthermore, I had to inhale medicated fumes through each nostril to experience an enhanced sense of smell. This also helps open up the sinuses. After that, she cleaned my teeth and gums. This would help improve the sensitivity of taste and sharpen my tastes buds.

在一系列的Ayurveda疗程之后,我的五官都被净化了。我最喜欢的是每一个步骤芳疗师都能耐心的解答,能让我细心体会每一个疗程带给我的感受,之后,她请我躺在油木按摩床上,这让我想起了去年在印度Kerala的那次叫做Abhayangamd水疗体验。这种按摩能让我的身体更好的吸收精油,更好的放松我的肌肉。
我最喜欢最后的一步,它叫做Shirodhara,即通过细针导入使得热精油在我的额头更好的发挥它的疗效。这过程能让你舒服的快要睡着了。虽然只有30分钟,但是我的头和头发都吸收了温热的Ayurveda精油,这种微妙感觉让我身体轻盈,感觉重力已经不存在了,轻轻的漂浮在空中一样。
Basically, all of my senses were cleaned through various procedures. What I really liked is the explanation that came along each step.It helped feel every second of the procedure as I could feel things taking effect.
Finally, therapist guided me to the wooden oil massage bed. This reminded me of my spa experiences last year in Kerala, India. It is called as “Abhayangam”. This is a very relaxing form of massage that involves soaking your body in oils and movements directed at putting your body muscles at ease. The last part of the treatment was my favorite. Shirodhara, as it is known is a procedure where warm oil pours on the forehead for half an hour through a needle thin source. This is a very therapeutic process and could put you to sleep in seconds.
I almost felt hypnotized in a way, melting my consciousness to deep slumber. It lasted for 30 minutes, till all my head and hair was soaked in the warm Ayurveda oil.At some point of time my body has suddenly become half the weight. Like I was floating and a concept like gravity didn’t exist. It is a light feeling sohard to put into words. We ended the session with a nice and relaxing steam bath that infused herbs with steam.

那一晚我感觉十分平静。我也有荣幸能够采访Pad医生,他也分享一些关于生活的小建议,这些都能在视频里看到(这里就不详细写了)。我能记得的就是在The shack餐馆里吃到的那最好吃的海鲜。那种美味让我感觉身在天堂!之后,我徒步回到了酒店,和那些刚认识的酒店员工聊天,按照我以往的经验,这也是最能让你感受到人情味的地方。如果你想寻找那种奢华,舒适,恢复身心,平静,友情和幸福旅行的话,这里绝对是首选!换句话说,这里真的值得你来一趟!
I was so calmer that whole evening. I also had the pleasure of interviewing Dr. Padmanabh who shared some more insights and helpful tips for day to day living. Which you would get to see in my videos later.
Little did I know, that night I would have the best seafood experience of my life at “the shack”. It would hit the spots and would almost make me feel like I died and went to heaven.
After that I would take a stroll around the hotel seeing many familiar faces. With the knowledge of this as my last night at Vivanta by Taj, it would also once again occur to me that while this may not be the place if your holiday idea is being the only person around. However,it certainly is the place if you are looking for luxury, comfort, rejuvenation, peace, friendships and happiness. Each very precious and all that I lovingly received here. In other words, the retreat at Vivanta by Taj certainly exceeded my expectations. My lovely friends Nilusha and Imesha at Colombo had be indebted.
