THE WORLD OF PAINLESS DENTISTRY
Dental treatments are often associated with painful injections and drills. Put aside those fears. We welcome you to an entirely new world of painless dentistry with the magic of acupressure technique. Acupressure (a blend of acupuncture and pressure) is a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) technique derived from acupuncture. In acupressure physical pressure is applied to acupuncture points by the hand, elbow or with various devices. Neuroimaging research suggests that certain acupuncture points have distinct effects that are otherwise unpredictable.
Dr. Feminath is skilled in identifying neural pressure points which blocks the sensation of pain thereby making injections go unnoticed. Acupressure technique makes root canal treatment a completely painless procedure.

"If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water."
Backwaters in Kerala – one of the 1001 best attractions of the world – take you to a world of serenity and natural beauty. On a backwater tour in Kerala, one can actually enjoy the soothing sound of water rippling alongside the houseboat, while drifting on the waterways. The green countryside, swaying palm trees, emerald rice fields and children waving from the banks of the backwaters of Kerala seem to be quite pleasant.
The backwaters, a distinctive feature of Kerala, are popularly known as 'kayals' in Malayalam. These are basically the wide network of canals, lakes, lagoons and rivers extending erratically along the coastal regions. Nearly 44 rivers cross through Kerala – forty one being west-flowing and three east-flowing.
These backwaters facilitate an incessant network of inland communication, due to their linkage with numerous canals, via motor boats, cruise or canoes throughout the year. Especially, cruising through the backwaters in a traditional Kettuvallom or houseboat makes one feel elated. The backwaters of Kerala, extending to over 900 km approximately, take you to a paradise where land, sea and sky come together in a union of elements.
Popular Kerala Backwater Destinations
The largest backwater is the 205 sq. km. Vembanad Lake, which connects to the Arabian Sea at Kochi Port. Apart from this, the eight hour long journey by boat between Kollam to Alappuzha is the best ever and the most enthralling experience of vacationing in the lap of the backwaters of Kerala. Places like Kumarakom, Trivandrum and Kochi also draw many tourists in the charm of backwater cruises.
The scenic beauty encompassing the land areas of the backwaters are equally enchanting. The lifestyle of the Keralites chiefly depends and orbits around the water bodies. The river banks are embroidered with the palm trees, cluster of mud houses with thatched roofs – depicting the picture of an unadulterated and chaste rural lifestyle. The exquisite natural beauty might change a normal mind to that of a poet – singing away to the glory of Nature !
