Pancha Karma Cleansing, Detoxification & Rejuvenation Therapies
Pancha Karma are highly specialised natural cleansing, detoxification and rejuvenation therapies. These therapies include cleansing diet, mild fast, herbal oil Abhyanga massage & Shirodhara (Snehan), herbal sauna (Swedan), gentle laxatives (Virechana), enema / colon cleansing (Bastil) and nasal drops (Nasya) and other traditional Ayurvedic procedures. You begin with a special diet, along with certain herbs and essential oils to use at home. These will help stimulate your digestive and cleansing organs, helping them to purge toxins. During Abhyanga massage, certain points where energy blockages tend to occur in the body, known as marma points, will be cleared. Each massage is usually followed by a sauna session to help increase elimination of toxins through perspiration. In some cases, special Ayurvedic poultices and herbal masks may also be used to enhance the cleansing process. Pancha Karma sessions are wonderfully relaxing. Their healing effects can be both subtle and profound. For instance, you may begin to notice your skin and eyes glowing with renewed health and vitality. Many people also experience weight change e, according to their needs.
