at the European Ayurveda Resort Mandira

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.

What is a Panchakarma treatment programme?

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.

Phases of a Panchakarma treatment

Phases of a Panchakarma treatment

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.

Deep cleansing treatments

Panchakarma treatment programmes aim to provide more than just superficial wellness. They offer an effective detox that penetrates even deep tissue. Treatments are based on ancient Ayurvedic medicine and are individually selected to suit your constitutional type.

Our European Ayurveda® concept combines tried and tested Ayurvedic healing methods with European habits and preferences. At the Mandira, classic Panchakarma treatments include:

  • Full-body flowing oil treatment (Pizzichilli).

  • Warm herbal compress massage (Jambira Pinda Sveda).

  • Warm water drinking therapy (Ushnodaka).

  • Salt and oil scrub to release excess energy (Upana).

Detoxifying nutrition is another important part of the programme as it helps cleanse the gut and relieve strain on the digestive tract. Most of our immune system is located in the gut and the condition of our digestive tract can even affect our psychological wellbeing: A gut detox is an essential element in a European Ayurveda® Panchakarma treatment programme. A healthy gut forms the basis for holistic health and wellbeing.

The holistic effect of an Ayurvedic Panchakarma treatment programme

The Ayurvedic Panchakarma treatment programme works holistically, affecting mind, body and soul. Harmful toxins (Ama), environmental pollutants and negative emotions put a strain on the body and inhibit precious vital energies. The deep cleansing achieved through Panchakarma releases blockages and restores natural balance.

As a result, physical performance and strength increase, and you feel more balanced and at peace with yourself. The programme has also proven highly effective in the prevention of illness and the treatment of chronic complaints.
