New soma center in Austria combines Ayurvedic treatments with traditional thermal water therapies & leading-edge western medical care
“soma” The New Center for Maharishi AyurVeda and Holistic Medicine in Geboltskirchen, Austria opens its doors in March to offer panchakarma treatments, pulse diagnosis and European water spa treatments.
“We combine ancient knowledge with the newest technologies to provide our patients and guests with the best healing arts of both East and West,” explains Dr med. Wolfgang Schachinger, general practitioner since 1983 and a pioneer of Ayurveda in Europe.
Thermal water from the Dreikönigsquelle (“Three King’s Spring”) in Haag in the Hausruck forest is used in soma for medicinal baths, water therapy and for the sustainable heating of the “green” clinic complex, which was built according to the principles of Vedic architecture by architect Herbert Schrattenecker.
Regional, sustainable building materials such as wood from Hausruck, brick and glass were used, with organic wood furniture in the guest rooms. “In our center we do without toxic and synthetic materials. These natural and sustainable principles contribute to the inner order and harmony of our patients and employees,” explains Dr Schachinger. Guests enjoy woodland walks in the beauty of the Hausruck forest, the largest contiguous forest in Central Europe.
The soma center includes spacious treatment rooms for thermal baths, medicinal water and Ayurveda treatments, an Ayurveda shop, and a restaurant.
The center is truly a family affair: in the clinic, Dr Wolfgang Schachinger and his daughter Dr med. Valeria Schachinger offer patients modern micronutrient analyses and preventive medical check-ups in addition to Maharishi AyurVeda consultations. Wolfgang Schachinger’s wife Gerda is managing director of the spa, responsible for the personal care of the spa guests, and daughters Jana and Sabrina Schachinger run the Ayurveda shop.
