PanchaKarma produces certain effects on the body and mind, which are rejuvenating in nature. PanchaKarma therapy is the supreme healing and rejuvenation protocol born of Ayurvedic Medicine and generally consists of Virechana--a cleaning of intestines to cure Pita related problems, Vasti--medicated oil enemas for Vata problems such as arthritis and back pains, Nasya--cleaning of the nasal sinuses which involves the application of oils through the nostrils to improve memory, intellectual function, heartache, etc., as well as Shirodhara--heated oils which stimulate the pineal gland and calm the brain. The goal of PanchaKarma is to restore you to your most perfectly balanced Dosha state, which exists at birth. Type of oil and herbal preparations used will vary depending on your personal Dosha.
