Panchakarma

WHAT IS PANCHAKARMA?
Panchakarma is the Ayurvedic program of detoxification, ultimate rejuvenation and anti-aging that is the most effective and luxurious technique available today to restore health and vigor for those living a hectic, stressful modern lifestyle. First coming to American awareness through Deepak Chopra, many of the finest medical spas here and in Europe feature Panchakarma, and people come back from them raving about the treatments they have received.

Panchakarma has powerful impact on the body’s ability to function optimally, removing toxins, clearing channels and rebuilding the body on a cellular level, while making you feel fabulously pampered and nourished. As result of PK, weight may drop off if there was excess and you will reset your metabolic level. Food cravings are eliminated and healthier choices are much easier to make. You will release a great amount of stress, become more clear-headed and energetic, and feel light yet stable. Your skin and eyes are guaranteed to be glowing, soft and beautiful!

WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM MY PANCHAKARMA TREATMENTS?
The Panchakarma Program begins with a thorough check up to access your metabolic body-type, current health status, time availability and budget to design a custom program to meet your needs. The week prior to your treatments, you will prepare by eating a lighter diet and taking a small amount of herbal ghee each day. This has a profound impact on the ease and effectiveness of the treatments by liquefying toxins and sending them to the digestive system where they will be removed. This is important because the majority of toxins today are fat, rather than water soluble, and not removed by most other cleansing methods.

The Panchakarma program consists of 3, 5 or 7 days of luxurious therapies that will transform your health on every level. You will be with us for 2 to 5 hours each day and receive special Ayurvedic massage, steam treatments to further liquefy toxins and raise metabolism, cleansing techniques, nourishing oil therapies as well as special teas, herbs and foods.

We recommend that you live lightly during your days of treatments, getting extra rest and focusing on your process, healing, blissful release and nourishment. You will be guided how to continue with your healthier new food tastes, and a follow up consultation is included.
