Pancha Karma is the science of cleansing the body from ancient India. The treatments are performed with techniques, herbs, and oils appropriate to your constitution. The purpose is to profoundly relax the body and mind, improve the flow of energy by opening the srotas (channels of circulation), and prepare the body to eliminate excess doshas (vata, pitta, kapha) or toxins (aama) on the physical, emotional and spiritual levels. After a few days of these treatments, the doshas have usually “ripened” in their sites of origin in the gastro-intestinal tract and are ready to be flushed from the system.

Preparing for Panchakarma

It is best to schedule your sessions during a time when you can rest and eat lightly. Light activity is acceptable, but you will want to allow your body and schedule some flexibility. One week to one month before Panchakarma therapies, you will likely be asked to take herbs and internal oils to help lubricate your body and begin to mobilize toxins. You will also need a Panchakarma Consultation to assess which therapies and which herbal formulas and oils will be most potent for you. More detailed and specific information is sent to you upon registration.

  • 30% non-refundable deposit required to reserve your space
  • We advise you to schedule in advance, as we are often booked up six to nine months in advance
  • Women will need to schedule Panchakarma Therapies so that they do not coincide with your menstrual cycle
  • Pancha Karma is a spiritual practice of the Yogis, not meant for treatment of pathological conditions
