Ayurveda’s Imperial Therapy: Panchakarma
Panchakarma is where inner and outer renewal begins. As one of the most effective healing modalities in Ayurvedic medicine, it is the ultimate mind-body healing experience for detoxifying the body, strengthening the immune system, and restoring balance and well-being.
The Panchakarma treatment combines Shirodhara—a unique massage applied with warm herbal oils that helps soothe anxiety and headaches, with Swedana—a full body steam therapy that infuses, herbs, and massage to loosen and move “ama,” which has the qualities of heaviness and sickness. Ama clogs and damages the tissues of our bodies. It is like a sludge or overflow of poorly digested food. The intake interview will note conditions of the tongue, body odor, heavy stool, and other indicators of ama.
The result of Panchakarma is an optimally functioning digestive system, renewed energy, a detoxed cleansing and a body ready for the life changing experience of Ayurveda.
