One of the miracles of the human body is its capability to constantly rejuvenate and heal itself.  However, when body energies (tridoshas) are imbalanced, due to either natural or unnatural causes, the digestive capacity is weakened, leading to the formation of toxic impurities which hinder the body’s healing capabilities.  Panchakarma is used as a remedy to restore the body to its natural, inherent healing state, expelling toxins and foreign substances.

Pancha means five in Sanskrit, and karma means actions or therapies.  Each of the five therapies is a toxin-elimination technique, which targets a certain dosha. This detox program offers a lifestyle change by planting a seed within you for improved habits when you return to your everyday life. They will help to both build up your health awareness and find alignment between your body, mind and spirit.
