About Us

Ayurveda is considered the most ancient healing science, developed in India more than 5000 years ago. Though in the early years, it was taught orally, the later practitioners wrote down the ailments, the treatment methods, the herbs, minerals, fruits, seeds, and leaves that were to be used for preparing the remedies. Though it was practiced all over the country, its popularity and prevalence eventually ebbed in other parts – but not in Kerala. The state is inextricably linked to Ayurveda, along with its natural beauty, the martial art of Kalarippayattu, and Kathakali.


Our chain of Ayurveda Healing Clinics is named after our founder, the revered Chandran Gurukkal, from the Marthangandi Vadakkeyil family of Kerala. From early childhood, he was steeped in the sacred traditions of Ayurveda and Kalari, and was a skilled Karateka, achieving a black belt. He introduced his unique martial arts version, which was a combination of Karate, wrestling, kalaripayattu and boxing, to Kerala. Thanks to his expertise in Kalari healing techniques, using ‘marmma chikitsa’ and nadi chikitsa’, he was able to heal several sports injuries in the traditional manner. Chandran Gurukkal prepared traditional medicinal remedies to treat injuries, immobility, and infirmity. His disciples had the fortune of experiencing the curative power of Ayurveda not just for their injuries, but for their overall wellness, and mental strength.

He had a dream – of making these powerful healing techniques accessible to everyone; to that end, Chandran Gurukkal Ayurvedic Clinic was established in August 2018. Today, our clinics carry forward the legacy of this illustrious visionary, offering affordable, authentic Ayurvedic treatment and therapies to cure and prevent illness. We have centers in Dubai, in Al Karama, Al Qusais,Dubai Healthcare city, Al Barsha, and Bur Dubai, and we are on the verge of opening our clinic in Bengaluru. This will be followed by clinics in Mumbai, Kolkata, and Hyderabad. At our clinics, we cater to patients of all ages. Whether it’s skincare, muscular debilities, eye problems, or mental health, CGAC promises you caring, attentive, and personalized treatment by expert practitioners. Our holistic approach works to root out ailments in their entirety, and have lasting results. Gentle yet potent, Ayurvedic therapies help patients feel refreshed and rejuvenated.

Nasyam is a powerful rejuvenating treatment that aims to purify the nasal passages and the head, to treat headaches and sinusitis. The medicine is administered through the nose, as it is considered the doorway to the brain. One nostril is closed and the medicine is instilled into the other, then the process is repeated for the second nostril. A gentle massage of the shoulder, neck, and head follows.


Podi Kizhi

A combination of 10 to 15 herbs is heated in a pan with some oil. They are then filled in a linen cloth to make a poultice, and then dipped in oil and gently pressed in the patient’s trouble areas. This treatment helps soothe inflammation and improve blood flow and is used in the treatment of arthritis, stress, rheumatism, and stiffness.


Shirovasti is basically a herbal oil for your head. The patient is seated on a wooden stool with a stiff, tight cap on the head to prevent the oil from leaking out. After keeping the oil for 45 minutes, it is drained out, and then the head, forehead, palms, and feet are massaged. This treatment is prescribed as per the practitioner’s discretion.


This treatment is performed by gently massaging the body with lukewarm oils. A part of the panchakarma treatment, pizhichil aims to remove toxins from the body and improve blood circulation. A cloth is dipped in the oil and squeezed onto the head and body, or to specific parts depending on the ailment, followed by a massage.


Abhyangam is a massage that relaxes the muscles and the body, as well as the senses, and removes toxins from the body. Lukewarm medicated oils are used to massage the body through firm but gentle strokes in the flow of arterial blood. It’s a detoxifying treatment that can be done to relieve stress and improve general wellness.


Shira means head, and ‘dhara’ means flow; hence shirodhara literally means flow on the head. Depending on the patient’s condition, oil, milk, water, or buttermilk flows onto the forehead in a steady stream from a suspended earthen pot or metal pipe. It’s followed by a head and body massage. This treatment is done to rebalance doshas within your body.


Thakara Dhara

Thakra is buttermilk; this treatment involves the pouring of buttermilk steadily on the forehead or elsewhere, and has preventive powers. It helps to detoxify and re-establish the equilibrium in your body. Part of panchakarma treatment, it can be used in the treatment of several chronic illnesses, stress, fatigue, and more.


This rejuvenating treatment for the eyes involves the application of pure, medicated ghee on the eyes. It reduces eye strain, relieves dry eyes, and burning sensation in the eye, and strengthens the eye muscles. It is also effective in treating ailments like refractive errors and retinopathy.


Greeva Vasti

A wet flour of black gram is fashioned into a well and placed on the neck, covering the cervical region. Medicated oils are poured into this and allowed to rest for a while. Greeva Vasti is used to treat neck pain. It is often prescribed to people who suffer from stick neck and pain from sitting for long hours and working on computers.

    I was suffering from arthritis for years. I went to many doctors and tried all kinds of medicines and physiotherapy too but I would get only temporary relief, and the pain would start again. It was getting so bad that it became difficult to do my daily routines. Then as a last resort I tried Chandran Gurukkal Ayurveda at Al Qusais.
