Panchakarma are the ‘Purification Therapies’ or the ‘Detoxification Procedures’. The word ‘Panchakarma’ means ‘Five Actions’ and refers to ‘Five Procedures’ intended to intensively cleanse and restore balance to the body, mind, soul and the senses. They are Vamana (Emesis), Virechana (Purgation), Vasthi (Medicated Enemas), Nasyam (Nasal Insufflation) & Raktha Mokshanam (Blood Letting).

The Panchakarma Therapeutic process appears quite simple in its application. However, its effects are powerful and effective. Panchakarma is a unique, natural, holistic, health-giving series of therapeutic treatments that cleanse the body’s deep tissues of toxins, open the subtle channels, and bring life-enhancing energy thereby increasing vitality, inner peace, confidence and well-being.
