"The International Holistic Health Centre (IHHC) will be a landmark for local and international health, as it combines modern medical practice with ancient systems. It is a visionary concept in health management. Holistic medicine is being viewed by the W.H.O as a model of health care and advocacy. I was most impressed by the whole programme of treatments. The overall holistic approach to health and well being, as well as the individual attention. Excellent!"
"I am in Bangalore to find out more about the International Holistic Health Centre, a spiritual quest to explore what it has to offer to a person's body and soul. To learn about the different traditional systems of medicine it has to offer and the different ways of helping a person to wholeness and harmony of body."
"Modern medicine is inclined to reduce a person and his disease to mainly a quantitative and physical dimensions. Holistic medicine on the other hand, with its different manifestations considers a human being as a whole with all his dimensions. This is what the International Holistic Health Centre proposes to do."
"I am very pleased to know Dr. Mathai and his wife. I am delighted to be introduced to holistic medicine through the Wellness Clinic. I wish Dr. and Mrs. Mathai and members of staff all the best. Many thanks to all."
"I am very happy that I came here. This is the kind of place I have long been looking for. Thank You Doctor Mathai and all other Doctors, staff members for their care. I will return soon."
"Your vision and beginning realization of an International Holistic Health Centre is exciting, Provocative and a ray of light for the coming century. It would be a great pleasure to be a part of the team. You are a model for a new possibility of health and caring - Compassionate loving care with skill and specific therapy. Congratulations. I also feel wonderful."
"Your staff has all the qualities of a true healing temple, led by the mastery of Dr. Mathai. Thank you for such loving, dedicated care."
"I enjoyed a wonderful programme developed for my particular needs - and I feel wonderfully rejuvenated - everyone treated me with caring attention, and I am most appreciative."
"Experiencing is different from hearing. We hear human values, human respect and polite and loveable approach. The values of all these qualities have been diminished because of advance in science, technology and change of attitude of professionals. My experience of last two-month's therapy has convinced me that one can appreciate the values of approach, respect and politeness of the staff in this centre. I firmly believe allopathy and Holistic therapy are complementary to each other."
"Excellent and thorough ayurvedic massage and (snehana / svedana). Very relaxing and healing. Good use of oils and hand work. Many thanks. Namaste."
"Doctor Mathai and his dedicated and professional team are doing a marvellous job in providing excellent facilities for a holistic treatment of the human body. I have no doubt that this set up is perhaps among the first in the world. We in Bangalore and India all indeed proud of you, Dr. Mathai."

"It's been an "EXPERIENCE-EXTRAORDINAIRE" for our whole group. We never know what we were coming in for, and what followed for the next three days of our stay was way beyond our imagination. The hospitality, the warmth, (and inspite of our seminar schedule) your guidance to go through the massage and the reflex therapies had been so exhilarating, rejuvenating and utmost relaxing. After long we experienced ourselves so close to nature and overall giving a spiritual - touch to our stay …..! Our heartful thanks and good wishes to Dr. Issac Mathai, Mrs. Mathai and their wonderful team of doctors, therapists, and all other staff who made our stay a wonderful lifetime experience ……."
"It was with a pleasant surprise that we witnessed the enormous change from a barren piece of land into a virtual corner of the heaven on earth. The phenomenal achievement of the Centre, both in terms of infrastructure and the surrounding beautification as well as the astounding calibre of the professional care and service brought us great joy at seeing a wonderful dream come true through the untiring efforts of the lovely couple, Dr. and Mrs. Issac Mathai.

"On my second visit - The first one being in April last year, when even this book wasn't started! - I enjoyed SOUKYA even more.
