WHO WE ARE

about us

As the only Ayurveda institution in Germany and even throughout Europe, we operate our centers for authentic Ayurveda medicine in Bad/Bocklet and Bad Kissingen. We do this under the name, according to the concept and in the tradition of the medical directorate of the Vaidja family Madukkakuzhy from Kerala, in good collegial cooperation with Dr. medical Winfried Breitenbach, who has the additional title naturopathic treatment.

Our unique selling points

We are the only company that has been offering medical Ayurveda in Kerala for eight generations(!) under the name Madukkakuzhy-Ayurveda and the same concept of this traditional Vaidya family, as well as at two locations in northern Bavaria: Bad/Bocklet and Bad Kissingen

We are the only center that works with Indian Ayurveda specialists. All speak good German. In addition, a total of 15 excellently trained Indian therapists work at both locations.

For our guests, our doctors offer medical consultations six days a week in order to be able to adapt your treatment to your individual needs on a daily basis. Our therapists will also treat you on Sundays. So you are well looked after every day of your stay.

We are the only center that has a joint practice with the German internist Dr. Breitenbach according to GOÄ for private patients. In addition to being billed according to GOÄ for the Ayurveda treatments, guests who are eligible for aid can also apply for a subsidy for accommodation in the Kunzmann sanatorium from their aid office.

You will receive treatments every day of your cure, including weekends and most public holidays, but not on Christmas Day, Easter Sunday or Whit Sunday.

With us, you choose the day of the week for your arrival and departure individually according to your wishes. In addition, all treatments offered can be extended by the day.

Mantra singing and meditation (for a fee) take place twice a week in the afternoon only in the Ayurveda Center Germany.

We have one hour of yoga every morning with trained yoga teachers. The medical consultations then start at 8:30 a.m. Every day you will receive a full body treatment of one hour and a partial body treatment of half an hour.

Both in the Kunzmann's Hotel in Bad/Bocklet and in the Hotel FONTANA in Bad Kissingen, trained Ayurveda chefs conjure up Ayurvedic delicacies for you all day long. In addition, on two weekends a year you have the opportunity to take part in one of our Ayurveda cooking courses in Bad/Bocklet and Bad Kissingen.

Once a week there is an informative lecture on Ayurveda

OUR MANAGEMENT:

The founder, owner and managing director of the German branches is the health economist Ebba-Karina Sander - MBA - who most recently managed the Bad Neustadt district hospital and worked as a lecturer at the Würzburg-Schweinfurt University of Applied Sciences.

OUR TEAM:

Almost our entire medical-therapeutic team is Christian, because Christianity has played an important role in Kerala since the 5th century: The Apostle Thomas stopped on his journey from Jerusalem on the Silk Road in southern India to stock up on supplies. He liked it so much that he stayed. Eight administrative employees and six yoga teachers complete the team.

HOW IT ALL BEGAN

It all started in the 1960s(!) with Dr. Mary Josephine Kalapurackal from Kerala, South India. At the tender age of 20, she was sent as a gifted novice to study medicine at the Würzburg faculty. She was on the road for three weeks: by ship through the Indian Ocean, the Suez Canal and the Mediterranean Sea to Genoa and from there two more days by train to Würzburg. She graduated summa cum laude in medicine and wrote her doctoral thesis in German. After completing her specialist training in gynecology, she returned to her homeland India after a total of 14 years and has worked since then – until today – initially as a gynecologist in hospitals and now in outpatient palliative medicine for oncological patients.

At the end of her regular working hours and at the age of 65, she returned to Germany in 2006 to take part in a three-month palliative care course, which she eventually completed in the palliative care unit at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Schweinfurt. She was accompanied by her nephew Jobin J. Madukkakuzhy, the youngest son of her younger sister Molly, who – following his family tradition – had become an Ayurveda specialist. The two have a very special bond as Mary performed midwifery for her sister. “I was born into their hands…” he says.

As part of this trip, Jobin J. Madukkakuzhy, now Medical Director of Madukkakuzhy Ayurveda, Kerala, and Health Economist Ebba-Karina Sander met by chance at St. Joseph’s Hospital. On this occasion he told her in detail about the diverse possibilities and areas of application of Ayurveda. Three months later, she found herself in the maze of Kochi’s Indian traffic, on her way to Parathodu, the home of the traditional Ayurveda family Madukkakuzhy. Five weeks of intensive treatment followed: alone in a foreign country, without other guests, without television, without reading material.

The loving acceptance into the family helped her through many dark hours. Every year she repeated the spa stays to further strengthen her health. This is how a deep friendship and bond with this family developed.

Over the years it became clear that there are also many people in Germany who also needed this special treatment, but who did not want to make the long journey to India due to a lack of language skills, fear of flying, etc. So Ebba-Karina Sander came up with the plan to set up a branch in a central location in the middle of Germany. The meditative small state spa Bad/Bocklet, with its agile mayor Wolfgang Back, offered the best conditions for this. He paved the way for Indian doctors and therapists to come to Germany. Unfortunately, in spring 2018 he left us too early and forever. His successor, Mayor Andreas Sandwall, supports this unique project in Bad/Bocklet in the best possible way. That is why we are the only Ayurveda health center in Germany that employs four Indian doctors and 15 friendly and qualified Indian therapists from the Madukkakuzhy parent company.

Eight administrative employees and six yoga teachers complete the team.

Our team composition

Almost all of our team is Catholic like most Christians in Kerala. The apostle Thomas stopped in 52nd AD on his journey from Jerusalem on the Silk Road in South India to replenish supplies. He liked it so much that he stayed &o this day the Catholics call themselves “Thomas Christians”.

Currently we have 2 very well-trained doctors and 6 lovely therapists from India with us in Bad/Bocklet, together with our friendly office team and the yoga teachers, there are now 14 people who work for us and who we pursue with a lot of heart and passion.
