THE MOST POWERFUL DETOXIFICATION, HEALING, AND REJUVENATION THERAPY UTILIZED IN AYURVEDA.
THE THERAPEUTIC PURPOSE OF PANCHAKARMA IS TO ELMINATE AMA (TOXINS) AND EXCESS DOSHAS, WHILE SLOWING DOWN THE AGING PROCESS AND REJUVENATE THE MIND AND BODY.
Over the course of 3, 5, or 7 days, you will be guided through daily customized and luxurious Ayurvedic body treatments. meditation, lifestyle and cleansing diet recommendations to detoxify and rebuild ojas (internal strength and immunity) of the body, mind, and spirit.
“I have completed 5 days of panchakarma at Chandra Ayurveda and I feel so much better than when I started the home prep (which for me was 4 weeks before the in-clinic visits). This is the 6th time I have done PK. My eyes are straining a lot less to see and I am not nearly as bothered by glare. My well being has really increased. My meditation is better. The discomfort in my hands and feet significantly improved. I learned more about practicing Ayurveda. I am very happy with how it went.
Annette combines the work of the vaidya and therapist effectively. It’s doubtful you will find any better PK from someone running a clinic solo. There’s meticulous attention to detail. The treatment plan for home prep, in-clinic, and rejuvenation phases showed depth of knowledge. Annette responds to questions readily as they arise and inspires confidence. Her education includes Ayurvedic study in India and teaching at massage school in California. Also a Registered Nurse, she has lots of experience to draw from. I recommend Annette to everyone interested in receiving panchakarma.”
– Will Albrecht
Panchakarma is recommended as an annual or bi-annual (spring or fall) detoxification to promote health and longevity, or as a way of targeting specific mind/body imbalances. The entire process brings balance at the physical, mental, emotional and even spiritual level.
Panchakarma programs at Chandra Ayurveda are custom designed to awaken the body’s innate healing intelligence and to deeply nourish you at the cellular level, increasing your ojas (immunity) and vitality.
“Ojas keeps all living beings nourished and refreshed.
There can be no life without ojas.”
Our body naturally heals and cleanses itself on a daily basis. But this mechanism of detoxification becomes less effective, weak, and congested due to wrong diet, lifestyle, synthetic medication, and environmental pollution. These factors overburden our lymphatic and immune systems and prevent the body from detoxing and healing properly.
Our Panchakarma program directly targets the cleansing systems of your body such as the lymphatic system, circulatory system and your immune system, and supports your body’s ability to detox, repair, and heal which slows down the aging process, and allows rejuvenation of the body, mind, and spirit to occur.
We believe Panchakarma to be an essential yearly practice for eliminating and preventing disease, preserving equilibrium and rejuvenating the body, mind, and spirit. Panchakarma is a powerful and well established science of removing ama (toxins) from the body, detoxifying the lymphatic system, balancing the doshas and agni (digestive fire), removing excess weight, and rejuvenating body, mind, and spirit.
