– For complete purification of the Body –
Panchakarma Detoxification is a set of five therapeutic treatments administered to the patient for the complete detoxification of the body. According to Ayurveda, detoxification of the body is necessary before undergoing any major treatment. Even for healthy people, Ayurveda recommends them to undergo this treatment once every five years. This helps in getting rid of all impurities and toxins accumulated over the years from their body. In some cases, Panchakarma Detoxification alone can cure many chronic diseases and prevent the need for future treatments.
What are the benefits?
Panchakarma Detoxification removes toxins from the digestive system, bowels, lungs, blood vessels and nervous system. It also strengthens the muscles and joints and helps in hormone secretion of all glands. It improves appetite, sleep quality, sexuality, concentration and memory. No wonder many people experience as if they have a new body after undergoing Panchakarma!
Who should follow this program?
Panchakarma is prescribed for those who live under constant stress due to the nature of work, lousy lifestyle, consumption of tobacco, alcohol, addiction to drugs. It also benefits those who are under medications from an extended period, those who are suffering from ailments such as arthritis, rheumatism, chronic digestive problems, constipation, migraines, obesity, insomnia and anybody who feels like purifying their body.
How many days should you stay?
The stay for a healthy person is usually between five to fourteen days. On the first day, there will be consultations with doctors, followed by relaxation. Panchakarma detoxification treatment begins from the second day. There will be one or two days of rest between phases of treatment, depending on how well your body is responding.
What is the daily program?
- Daily consultation with our doctors to monitor your health and progress
- Therapy sessions including Snehapana, Abhyanga, Virechana, Basti
- Oral Herbal medication

The 5 Phases of Panchakarma
Purvakarma: Pre-purification preparation
Before commencing the actual detoxification, the body needs to be prepared to release toxins, as per prescribed methods. Two procedures are used for this: Snehana and Swedana.
Snehana is a full-body massage with medicated herbal oils. Oil massage is done in a particular manner to move the toxins towards the gastrointestinal tract. The oil penetrates the skin, leaving the superficial and deep tissues soft and supple, thus helping to remove stress and nourish the nervous system. Snehana is given for three to seven days, as indicated.
Swedana is sudation or sweating. It is given every day immediately following Snehana. A herbal concoction may be added to the steam to further loosen the toxins from the body. Swedana liquifies the toxins and facilitates their movement towards the gastrointestinal tract.
Pradhanakarma – The main Purification process
Vamana- Vomiting Therapy
When there is congestion in the lungs, causing repeated bronchitis attacks, colds, cough or asthma, the recommended Ayurvedic treatment is therapeutic vomiting. This eliminates the ‘Kapha’, producing excess mucus.
Virechana – Purgation Therapy
When excess bile (Pitta) is secreted and accumulated in the gallbladder, liver and small intestine, it results in rashes, skin inflammation, acne, chronic fever, vomiting, nausea and jaundice. For this Ayurveda suggests administration of therapeutic purgation or a therapeutic laxative.
Nasya – Nasal Administration
The nose is the doorway to the brain and also an entry into one’s inner self. The nasal administration of medicated drops is recommended for excess body humoral accumulated in the sinuses, throat, nose or head areas. They are eliminated through the nearest possible opening – the nose.
The predominant location for Vata is the colon. Basti therapy involves the introduction of herbal decoctions and medicated oil preparations into the rectum. It relieves constipation, digestive problems, chronic fever, colds, sexual disorders, kidney stones, heart pains, backache, sciatica and various joint pains. Many other Vata disorders such as arthritis, rheumatism, gout, muscle spasms and headaches can also be treated with Basti.
The treatment mentioned above is the general Panchakarma Detoxification therapy for a healthy person. However, our doctors will check the medical history and diagnose the patient’s health condition before prescribing the right treatment.
