Panchakarma (which means 5 steps or 5 actions) is a cleansing and rejuvenating program for the body and mind. It is well-known for its beneficial effects on the overall health and sense of well-being of an individual. According to Ayurveda, our natural state is one of health, happiness and an inner sense of well-being. Health is defined as a state where the human body is clear of toxins, the mind is at peace and emotions are calm and happy, our body waste is efficiently eliminated and organs are all functioning normally. In a busy, toxic world, our physical and mental systems accumulate toxins which cause deterioration in the normal functioning of our body. This will eventually weaken our system thus opening the way for the attack of chronic degenerative and non-specific diseases to develop. This will ultimately damage the individual's health and sense of well-being.

Panchakarma tries to reverse these negative effects of daily living and restore one's natural state of health and wellness by cleansing the body of toxins, bringing balance to our system and improve bodily function. It also helps to make the necessary positive changes in lifestyle.

The Panchakarma therapeutic process seems very simple but its effects are powerful. This treatment is completely natural and unique. The series of this treatment will cleanse the body of deep tissue toxins, open the necessary channels, bring in a rejuvenation and enhancing sense of well-being thereby increasing vitality, confidence and health.
