The science of 'Kayakalap' or 'Rejuvenation' has received the attention of some of the most eminent physiologists and doctors ever since the Vedic period. The development of this science has been along lines which are very well recognised in the Ayurvedic system of medicine. Perhaps it would not be wrong to say that the very fact that Ayurveda recognised a certain system of treatment which embraced the simultaneous revival of the important organs of the body, has made the development of 'Kayakalap' up to its present standard possible. The term "present standard'' may perhaps be misleading and it would be worthwhile making it clear: that by "present standard" is meant the standard which it achieved at its height. It may be that at present we do not know certain aspects owing to researches remaining incomplete and the consequent back-sliding.
