Ayurvedic Healing and Cleansing Therapies
Ayurvedic Healing Therapies are also availed as a group of therapies called as Panchkarma.
Panchakarma is a five-fold therapy; it is highly individualized based on the needs of the individual depending on the Ayurvedic constitutional type, doshic imbalances, age, digestive strength, immune status, and many other factors.
Depending on each individual’s needs, all or only parts of the five therapies are utilized. Specially trained therapists must administer these procedures in an exact sequence for a specified period of time.
The experience is pleasurable and deeply rejuvenating, the treatment is tailored to individual needs and may involve:
- • Daily warm oil massage (abhyanga)
- • Herbal steam therapy (swedana)
- • Lymphatic massage
- • Herbal enemas (basti)
- • Improves vision
- • Nasal administrations (nasya)
Panchakarma Rejuvenating Detox. Panchakarma is a Sanskrit word that means “five therapies.” This is a process used to clean the body of toxic materials left by disease, poor nutrition and environmental toxins.
Normally the body has the innate ability to efficiently process and remove these waste materials, including the vitiated doshas. However, due to one’s repeated dietary indiscretions, poor exercise patterns, lifestyle, and genetic predisposition, the digestive enzymes, metabolic co-factors, hormones, and agnis which regulate the body’s internal homeostasis become disorganized. This can lead to the accumulation and spread of toxins throughout the physiology resulting in disease. This waste matter is called ama in Ayurveda.
Ama can have an unpleasant odor and is a sticky, harmful substance that needs to be completely evacuated from the body. Panchakarma Rejuvenating Detox will remove the excess doshas and correct imbalances in them as well as eliminate the harmful ama out of your system through the body’s own organs and channels of elimination (colon, sweat glands, lungs, bladder, urinary tract, stomach, intestines, etc).
Panchakarma purifies the tissues at a very deep level.
