Panchakarma

Panchakarma-Detox Retreat in Rishikesh India

Panchakarma (which can be translated from Sanskrit as “the five actions”) is a program which helps to cleanse and rejuvenate both mind and body. It is well known throughout India as a powerful method of self-healing, and, as such, is a simple yet effective form of therapy that many people find highly beneficial.

Panchakarma begins with the idea that three things are needed for us to live in our intended natural state: happiness, health, and a sense of inner wellbeing. In the hectic and stressful modern world, these three factors can easily be lost, leading not only to a lack of happiness or fulfillment, but also a whole host of mental and physical problems and illnesses. However, through the various therapeutic methods, we use in our Panchakarma program, you will be able to restore your body and mind to their natural state, detoxify your body, and bring balance to your system. Not only this, but you will also be encouraged to examine your lifestyle and make positive changes for the better, allowing you to go through your daily routine without letting the stresses and pressures of the world get you down.

Our Panchakarma program begins with a thorough consultation assessment, so that we can perfectly tailor our approach to each person’s unique needs. We will then provide you with an individual timetable of lessons, therapies, and yoga sessions, so that you are able to tackle your personal obstacles to wellbeing and fulfillment. Whatever you are facing in your life, we will help you to tackle it head-on, and restore your health and happiness to their natural state.
