Ultimate Mind & Body Detoxification

Panchakarma Package


Veda5 is the best Panchakarma retreat in Rishikesh, India. Panchakarma, the comprehensive Ayurvedic therapy for ultimate mind-body cleansing, involves five types of Ayurvedic therapeutic measures to detoxify the body and successfully eliminate disease causing toxic elements. Ayurveda highly recommends body purification and detoxification before starting a therapy or a treatment. Apart from Ayurvedic detoxification, Panchakarma is also recommended to strengthen the immune system of the body in order to restore the overall balance and well-being.

Ayurveda is concerned with eight principle branches of medicine: pediatrics, gynecology, obstetrics, opthalmology, geriatrics, otolaryngology (ear, nose and throat), general medicine and surgery. Each of these medical specialties is addressed according to theories of the five elements (Ether, Air, Fire, Water, Earth): the tridosha, or three bodily humors: the seven dhatus, or body tissues; three maias (urine, stools, sweat): and the trinity of life: body, mind and spiritual awareness.

Panchakarma involves five sets of Ayurveda treatment procedures:

Step 1 – Vamana (Emesis treatment) Vamana is a medicated emesis therapy which removes Kapha toxins collected in the body and the respiratory tract. This is given to people with high Kapha imbalance. Daily treatment involves loosening and mobilizing the toxins in an effort to finally eliminate them. Vamana treatment may take from 3 – 7 days.

Step 2 – Virechana (purgative treatment) Virechana is medicated purgation therapy which removes Pitta toxins from the body that are accumulated in the liver and gallbladder. It completely cleanses the gastro-intestinal tract. It is a safe procedure without side effects. Virechana treatment may take from 3 – 7 days.

Step 3 / 4 – Basti (Enema) Basti is considered as the mother of all Panchakarma treatments. It cleanses the accumulated toxins from all the 3 doshas : Vata, Pitta and Kapha, through the colon. Basti is also highly beneficial as a rejuvenating treatment.

Step 5 – Nasya Nasya treatment involves administration of medicated oil or powder through the nose to cleanse accumulated Kapha toxins from the head and neck region. Based on the medical condition of a person, it can be given up to 30 days. It is usually prescribed for diseases of ear, nose, throat, headache etc.

Principles of oleation and fermentation are applied through Ayurveda therapies:

Abhyanga This is an individually prepared herbal-oil massage designed to deeply penetrate the skin, relax the mind-body, break up impurities, and stimulate both arterial and lymphatic circulation.

Shirodhara It is administered by gently and methodically pouring warm herbalized oil over the forehead, synchronizing brain waves and profoundly coordinating and calming the mind, body, and spirit.

Garshana It consist of a dry skin brushing with either wool or a silk glove. This enhances circulation and cleans the skin so that subsequent oil and herbal treatments can penetrate deeply into freshly cleansed pores of the skin.

Swedana This is an individually herbalized steam bath, during which the head and the heart are kept cool while the body is heated to remove mental, emotional and physical toxins lodged deeply within the tissues.

Pizichil This is a continuous stream of warm herbalized oil soothingly poured over the body by two Ayurvedic therapists as they massage the body in perfect unison. The warmth of the oil and synchronicity of the massage combine for a deep tissue cleansing.

Udvartana This is a deeply penetrating herbal paste lymphatic massage. This powerful exfoliating treatment magically Restore Your Natural Radiance conditions the skin while pressing stagnant lymphatic toxins out of the body.

Potli Massage This massage is done with special bags which contain either medicinal herbs or other nutritious items. The bags are heated in warm oil for few minutes and then are used for massaging the body. It is a great massage to relieve pain, reduce physical and mental stress.

Pinda Swedana This is a deep cleansing treatment where rice boiled in milk and herbs is massaged deeply into the tissues and joints.
