The Madras Institute of Ayurveda


Welcome to The Madras Institute of Ayurveda – the centre of Ayurvedic medicine and treatment in Chennai, where age-old tradition meets modern techniques, ranging from Panchakarma treatment to rejuvenation treatment. With facilities for a whole range of quality ayurvedic treatments on par with the highest standards and finest traditions dating back to Vedic times, MIA is headed by Dr. K. S. Manoj M.D. (AY) who is assisted by an accomplished team of doctors and experienced therapists. Care begins with an accurate diagnosis, based on which the doctors create a customised treatment plan to treat the disease and not just the symptoms.

Contemporary amenities are provided for all types of treatments and therapies including Panchakarma treatment, Kerala Specialty Ayurvedic treatment, Rejuvenative treatment etc. MIA uses quality medicines of Vaidyaratnam P.S.Varier’s Arya Vaidya Sala, Kottakal, Kerala.

With an ever-increasing awareness on Ayurveda, the quest is for proper treatment and facilities by qualified, seasoned physicians and therapists. Although Ayurveda is commonly associated with Kerala, there are many constraints for patients – travel, language, accommodation for the treatment etc. MIA was established with the aim of bringing the same genuine treatment with all facilities to a more accessible location.
