A National Accreditation Board for Hospitals
has been established to monitor safety and hygiene norms. Surgeons India and physicians with decades of experience in the USA, the UK and Europe have set up several modern hospitals to provide medical tourism services.
The Indian Government issues an “M” visa for patients and “MX” visa for those accompanying them for operations India. In 2005, around 200,000 foreigners chose India as their centre for undergoing medical and dental treatment. Most medical tourism packages combine a health procedure with a visit to an exotic Indian destination and alternative healing therapies.
For those patients who would like to try out alternative systems of healing rather than operations India, there are many places that practice traditional methods of medicine. Some systems available are Reiki, Pranic Healing, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda, Homeopathy, Naturopathy, Unani and Magneto therapy.
Ayurvedic massages and Yoga are extremely popular when it comes to relaxation and maintaining a healthy life. The State of Kerala on the southern coast of the country is world renowned for its ‘Ayurvedic Shalas’ and Ayurvedic spas.
These alternative therapies are usually recommended by surgeons India after the operations they perform are successful. Alternative therapies are usually included with medical tourism packages as they boost relaxation and can help patients recover quickly.
