Panchkarma a comprehensive Ayurvedic System
Ayurveda is a complete education to a new way of living. Ayurvedic therapies, applied in the traditional Ayurvedic method, will impact and transform the entire being.
Panchkarma is a sophisticated process that includes specific Ayurveda and Sidha cathartic therapies to cleanse the body and sub conscious mind of their emotional and physical garbage. These treatments are body friendly and natural.
Panchkarma, a comprehensive Ayurvedic system, is used to purify the body and clear deep-rooted toxins. It consists of many forms of therapy designed to prevent or manage disease, restore balance and ultimately rejuvenate the entire being. Although Panchkarma is used to treat serious and chronic conditions, it is also highly effective as a preventative treatment.
Our Rishikesh Centre retreats are a perfect choice for those who want to practice Yoga, Ayurveda healing and deep meditations in the land of Mother India. Our retreats are specifically especially designed for those wishing to experience India’s rich spiritual history. We will endeavour to show you the fascinating and diverse facets of Hinduism, Taoism, Sufism and Tantra.
