On the occasion of the European World Ayurveda Congress, organized by the European Ayurveda Association (EAA) on 15 and 16 October 2016 in Koblenz, the Indian Minister for Ayurveda and Yoga, Hon. Shripad Yesso Naik, together with his advisory staff visited the Maharishi Ayurveda Private Clinic Bad Ems for a 2-hour session.
Since its foundation 24 years ago, more than 25,000 patients from all over the world have been treated at the clinic, which has won numerous awards worldwide. The Indian Minister and his team were extremely impressed by the high standards of the private clinic, as well as by Häckers Grandhotel and the beautiful spa architecture of the charming spa town on the River Lahn.
The conference, organized by the EAA in cooperation with the Indian government, was attended by about 50 renowned Ayurveda speakers.
