Panchakarma is the systematic process of detoxification and rejuvenation used to treat disease in Ayurveda. It involves a combination of in person treatments, as well as at home measures. The first step in Panchakarma is to prepare the body for detoxification using a custom tailored diet and herbal regimen recommended by our Ayurvedic Doctor. Specific herbal medicines are utilized during hands on treatments to deliver maximum benefit. Once the body has been able to cleanse itself of ama (toxins), it is extremely important to rebuild strength within the system. This two step process is the key to being able to maintain long term changes in health and optimize function of the mind, body, and spirit as a whole.
