Our center aims to popularize Maharishi Ayurveda, a science that encompasses all the aspects of the well-being of living beings, the physical, the psychic, and the spiritual in that the human life is made up of sense organs, mind and soul.We are specialists in Ayurvedic medicine and we offer and perform the purification process called Panchakarma in its authentic formca described in the Charaka Samita


One whose Doshas (basic life principles) and Agni (metabolism and digestive power) are in balance, whose Dhatu (tissues) and Malas (elimination products) function normally, and whose self, soul and senses are imbued with happiness, such a one is defined as a healthy person.

Sushruta, XV 38, Ayurveda Reference Book.


Ayurveda, the “science of life,” originates from the Ancient Vedic Civilization.
Practiced in India for thousands of years, it is the oldest natural system for the care and well-being of the body and mind.

In collaboration with leading Ayurvedic experts, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in the early 1980s restored Ayurveda to its original glory.
This is how this approach in its purest and most complete form is now known as “Maharishi Ayurveda.”

It is a system of medical knowledge handed down in India from time immemorial, not only geared toward curing disease but more importantly toward a way of life that promotes health and disease-free longevity by correcting subtle imbalances in the body before they manifest as pathological phenomena.


Our center offers the expertise of a group of people who have been experts for more than 30 years in “Maharishi Ayurveda” Ayurvedic medicine recognized as the most authentic in India and in the world, not only of medicine but also of all that Vedic Science offers Transcendental Meditation – Stapathya Veda (eco-friendly architecture) – GandharvaVeda (music therapy) – Jyotish (Vedic astrology).

Helping people to be healthier and treating those with health problems is our goal by making use of a treasury, knowledge and experience of Ayurveda dating back more than 3500 years. Each person is a unique being, and we always take this into account when approaching a diagnosis and therapy.

Our technicians, including physicians and physical therapists, receive specialized training at Maharishi University through long and in-depth courses. We work with experienced Indian Vaidya (Ayurvedic doctors), who are occasionally present at the center, including Dr. J.R. Raju, Dr. Pavani Chakrahari Raju and Dr. Aditya Chakrahari Raju.

Dr. Patrizia Raitieri

Having graduated in Medicine and Surgery from the University of Milan and specialized in Psychosomatic Medicine, she felt to continue her studies in search of a discipline that could complement her studies: she recognized this in Ayurveda, which aims at the aspiration of a long and healthy life with a balanced lifestyle based on the 3 pillars : BODY MIND SPIRIT. Immediately he senses that it will be part of his life. Thus began a long a course of study in Ayurveda that would lead her to specialize at Maharishi University, to meet with India’s leading Vaidya Physician experts. In his various years of schooling he learned the Practice of Panchakarma and The Diagnosis of the Pulse, which he also deepened with trips to India. His approach to health draws resources from this ancient and paradoxically “modern” Vedic medicine. He devotes himself body and soul to the art of Ayurvedic healing. As she says, “It is my life’s purpose.”

He is a lecturer in Ayurveda at the Italian Association of Physicians for Maharishi Ayurveda and the Vedic Approach to Health According to Maharishi. Founder of the Maharishi Lake Orta Ayurveda Center, she is in charge of all clinical aspects and therapies and prescriptions for the center’s guests.

His integrated approach-Traditional Medicine, Psychosomatic Medicine, Ayurveda Medicine, Experiential Techniques-takes into consideration all aspects of the individual Body Mind Spirit in relation to the universe and its laws of Nature helping people on their healing journey and making all this valuable knowledge available to them.
