Panchakarma is the purification therapy used in Ayurveda as a means of preventative health as well as working with a wide variety of health concerns. Panchakarma translates to the five actions and refers to five procedures intended to both cleanse and restore supporting and bringing balance to the body, mind, and emotions.

Ayurvedic medicine is the oldest healing system in the world, originating in India. With the definition of its meaning as “science of life”, Ayurveda teaches about the world you live in by understanding the elements from a subtle to gross level and understanding the energetics of nature and how they play upon them in our body, mind, and energy.

Panchakarma is based on central concepts of Ayurveda, which state that disease is caused by accumulation of excess dosha (imbalance of elements) in the body and mind.

The main tools through its practice are the support of digestive health, the cleansing of toxins, and the balancing of emotions of the mind to create a sustainable life of balance through our intake within the five senses.

All programs are individualized to meet the goals of the participant. Time in nature, movement, breath, and meditation classes are included daily as well as Ayurvedic detox body therapies.

Not only will you receive a one on one consultation with our Ayurvedic practitioner upon arrival, but you will be treated and guided through the process with daily consultations too. The afternoon is free for time to explore the walking trails and river in the local area. For those wishing to visit the ocean, excursions can be planned upon registration.
