What is Pancha Karma?
According to Ayurveda: Health is defined as the body being clear of toxins, the mind at peace, emotions are calm and happy, wastes are efficiently eliminated and organs are functioning normally. Even though our natural state is healthy, we may ourselves under the pressures of stress both physical and mental. As a result of these stressors the body accumulates toxins over time. These toxins take a toll on the system leaving us vulnerable to chronic illness and weaken our immunity. If not addressed, because of our busy lives, this can eventually create long term imbalances and dis-ease.
Pancha Karma therapies help to calm and restore the nervous system and by doing some reverse the daily wear and tear on the system. This brings the body back into its natural state of wellness. With dietary and holistic body work, the system can release toxins and improve all natural functions. These lifestyle practices can implemented at home and become ways to maintain health and vitality. The Pancha Karma therapies offered in this program are gentle and non invasive, however the benefits are strong and long-lasting.
Our Pancha Karma Spa Program is designed to invoke peace, well being and health, so that you can live your purpose with energy, confidence and joy. It is a way to pro-actively improve and maintain your health and well being.
