Components of Panchakarma

A full Panchakarma treatment lasts 2.5 hours daily and is comprised of the following components:

  1. Massage (Abhyanga) - Enjoy the amazing effects of a massage with medicated herbal oils. The Traditional abhyangatreatment includes two therapists giving you a four-handed synchronized massage. This special therapeutic massage detoxifies and rejuvenates the body, improves circulation, strengthens the immune system and enhances the complexion of the skin. Above all, it leaves you with a general improved sense of well-being.

  2. Aromatherapy steam (Swedhana) - After your massage, relax as your mind and body are enveloped in a soothing steam bath. Swedhana improves peripheral circulation and this treatment allows the Ayurvedic oils to penetrate deeper into the tissue, enhancing the detoxification process. It strengthens the immune system and moisturizes the skin, making it soft and smooth.

  3. Nasal therapy (Nasya) - During this therapy, several drops of medicated oil are administered into each nostril. This opens and cleanses your nasal and sinus passages, enhancing the flow of oxygen to the brain. It may relieve allergy and sinus conditions and improve your memory.

  4. Shirodhara - During this relaxing therapy, a continuous stream of warm Ayurvedic oil flows over your forehead. Shirodhara is used to heal chronic neuromuscular disorders and vata imbalances: hypertension, insomnia, depression, anxiety, headaches and restlessness. It can also have a powerful spiritual effect on the mental and emotional well-being of the individual

  5. Bhasti (Optional but recomended and included with 5 days or more of Panchakarma - Bhastis are herbal & oil therapeutic enemas. The Bhasti restores the balance to the 3 doshas, especially vata. Regular administration of Bhastiimproves vision, slows down the aging process, adds strength and supports longevity. Bhastis can relieve constipation, backache, sciatica and joint pain. Bhastis are optional and recommended for patients that do 5 to 21 days of Panchakarma. ​
