“Pancha” in Sanskrit is “five” and “karma” refers to therapies – thus panchakarma denotes the five types of Ayurveda therapy. They are done in a particular sequence for the cleansing of the body as well as curing of bodily ills. These treatments may precede various others. By analogy, just as a cloth needs to be cleaned of impurities and dirt before it can be dyed with a new color, similarly the body needs to be purified before it can be renewed with the metaphorical colors of youthfulness, health, and vitality. Specific individual treatments are recommended after your thorough consultation with and supervision by our medical staff.
