What is Ayurveda and Panchakarma?
Ayurveda is ancient Vedic Indian medicine that stood the test of time and has adapted well to the modern world. Ayurveda takes a comprehensive approach, offering preventative, curative, and promotive therapies. It's aim is to recognize your inherent relativity with nature and to address the whole system of you as opposed to only addressing the presenting symptom. Your initial consultation considers your particular health concerns, but also focuses on the mind, emotions, and whole body. Your past will be brought up and studied, as well as your current health needs. Medical reports will be reviewed if submitted before arrival - and the Doctors are skilled at addressing a wide range of health concerns including allergies, respiratory issues, cancers, gastro-intestinal issues, diabetes, headaches, hormonal problems, fertility, lifestyle problems, long covid, arthritis, bone health, sports injuries, and much more.
In Panchakarma (retreat therapies aimed at cleansing the body and mind of unwanted waste) a Vaidya (Doctor) uses their knowledge, training, experience and intuition to plan a schedule that helps your body cleanse, repair, and rejuvenate as fast and efficiently as possible so that you can heal quickly, easily, and completely. You can expect to have at least one treatment a day which will likely include abhyanga (full body oil massage).
