What to Expect During Panchakarma
Our panchakarma program is designed and custom-tailored to your current state of health, wellness, and constitution. It is the starting point to manage and improve your health and wellness pro-actively. Personal attention is given to each guest’s specific needs, dosha, and imbalances. Like all health procedures, panchakarma must always begin with an initial consultation by a qualified Ayurvedic Physician who can determine the individual's constitution, nature of the health imbalance and the appropriate degree of the intensity of the techniques used. Specially trained technicians must administer these methods in a definite sequence in a specified period. Participation in panchakarma requires close supervision by an Ayurvedic expert at all times.
Panchakarma is a three-stage process. The preparatory phase begins with enkindling the digestive fire or Agni, and loosening toxins and lubricating the body’s subtle channels with internal and external oleation and sweating techniques. According to Ayurvedic theory, these preparatory procedures called purvakarma to liquefy the body’s impurities and push them toward the gastrointestinal tract. After several days of purvakarma, the practitioner will choose one or more of five elimination procedures (panchakarma) to rid the body of the ama; this may also last up to many days. Once the elimination procedures are completed, a rasayana (rejuvenation and restorative) program will follow. These herbal, nutritive and lifestyle restorative practices are just as important as the other stages of the Panchakarma, to ensure the body has not only been purified but strengthened, remaining in balance and limiting the possibility of future imbalances.
