In a world defined by stress and the pressure to achieve, we can easily neglect doing the things that are good for us. We forget to eat healthily, to rest, to exercise. Ayurvedic Panchakarma treatment programmes offer a fresh start: your chance to detox, let go of baggage and experience lasting regeneration. Discover fresh vitality and renewed joie de vivre, and find your way back to harmony.
Panchakarma is an Ayurvedic cleansing and detox treatment that consists of a range of methods to rid the body of waste products and toxins.
The Queen of Ayurvedic treatments, Panchakarma, targets both physical and spiritual wellbeing. Physical treatments are accompanied by Yoga and meditation to bring about quality of life improvements on every level.
Panchakarma means ‘five cleanses’, owing to the five actions involved in flushing out toxins.
A Panchakarma treatment comprises of three phases: pretreatment, main treatment and aftercare.
Pretreatment uses purgative fats to prepare the body for the coming elimination of toxins. Gentle oil massages plus the daily ingestion of small quantities of clarified butter (ghee) aim to release toxins from the tissues. Even at this early stage, guests report feeling lighter and complaints begin to improve.
The main treatment consists of various processes, such as nasal rinsing treatments (Nasya) and heat therapy (Svedana), which remove toxins from the body. At this stage, healing and detoxification begin to take effect.
The aftercare phase is designed to strengthen and stabilise the body. Invigorating herbal teas, nutritious food and light exercise support regeneration.
Each stage of the therapy is accompanied by beneficial oil treatments, relaxing massages and a special detox diet.
