Panchakarma


Panchakarma is the most important therapy in Ayurveda. It is the only most powerful healing therapy utilized in Ayurveda.

The best immune boosting and preventive treatment that you can ever think of , it  gets rid of toxins  and infuses vital energy .Panchakarma ,the Ayurvedic treatment of cleansing and rejuvenation is a safe and time tested way to ensure perfect health and longevity. Ayurveda recognizes that illness arise from the accumulation of toxins in the body which in turn leads to the impairment of the body’s defenses -lymphatic, circulatory and immune systems. Deep healing occurs with the exit of toxins and the entry of energy that flows  freely.  Panchakarma is a traditional Ayurvedic treatment program, a unique concept for rejuvenation, prevention and cure. The body’s  natural healing mechanisms are awakened spontaneously to further improve health.

Panchakarma is literally translated as "the five actions", and is the ancient system of Ayurvedic rejuvenation therapies designed to facilitate the removal of deep-rooted stresses and impurities in the physiology. It is recommended on a seasonal basis to maintain and promote well being in healthy people and when needed to restore balance in those suffering with illness. Panchakarma cleansing begins with Ayurvedic consultation to design a treatment plan individually tailored to the needs of the client.
