Executive PanchaKarma Centre

Executive Panchakarma Centre

In Ayurveda every human being is a phenomenon of cosmic energy, which manifests itself through the three basic elements or the “Tridosha” – Vata, Pitta & Kapha (resembling to the principles of motion, transformation and matter). Each individual's constitution reflects its own unique balance of these three elements. When this “Doshic” balance is disturbed it leads to disequilibrium in body functions which in turn leads to various health disorders and diseases. The inappropriate diet, lifestyle, habits, seasonal changes, repressed emotions and stress factors, act together or separately to imbalance one’s Doshas.

"Panch" literally means five and ‘Karma’ implies purifying & rejuvenating measures. Panchakarma exterminate all toxins from the body, mind & consciousness and thereby restore the constitutional balance. This in turn strengthens the immune system and slows down the ageing process.
