16 Days Purification Treatment
Panchakarma is a Sanskrit word that means “five actions” or “five treatments”. This is a process used to clean the body of toxic materials left by disease, poor nutrition and environmental toxins.
Due to one’s repeated dietary indiscretions, poor exercise patterns, lifestyle, and genetic predisposition, the digestive enzymes, metabolic co-factors, hormones, and agnis which regulate the body’s internal homeostasis become disorganized. This can lead to the accumulation and spread of toxins in body and the result is disease. This waste matter is called ama in Ayurveda. Ama is a foul-smelling, sticky, harmful substance that needs to be completely remove from the body.
“The mind and body are not separate. what affects one, affects the other.”
Our Treatment Method:
1. Udvartana: The Powder Massage
An ayurvedic massage expert can better perform this massage with special techniques. The primary advantage of the Udvartana is to evacuate poisons through the skin. However, ayurvedic doctors mainly recommend it for reducing excess cellulite and fat accumulated under the skin.
Udvartana is a decent procedure to detoxify the body. At the point when the body is kneaded and cleaned upward way, warm vitality is created and because of this, the fat is condensed and rejected. These herbs and powders penetrate deep inside the body through pores in the skin.
Use of powder made of herbs in body massage is called Udvartana (ayurvedic powder massage & spelled as Udwarthanam and Udvarthanam). The word “Udvartana” refers to elevation and upward strokes during massage. An ayurvedic massage expert can better perform this massage with special techniques.
According to action of the powder massage, it is a mainly two types:
- SNIGADH or SNEHA (Unctuous or Oily)
- RUKSHA (Dry)
Snigadh Udvartana is powder massage done with herbal paste prepared mixing herbs’ powder with medicated oils. This herbal paste is rubbed over the skin.
In Ruksha Udvartana, dry powders of herbs are used for rubbing. Herbal ingredients are rough and dry in nature and used to reduce excess KAPHA. Ruksha Udvartana is beneficial for reducing excess cellulite and fat under the skin.
2. Snehapanam: Pre-Purification Therapy
Panchakarma in Ayurveda offers a systematic treatment for dislodging and flushing toxins from every cell using the same organs of elimination that the body naturally employs.
The use of medicated oils, either internally or externally, is called Snehan (oleation). Snehan refers to the administration of medicated fats or the massage of oil over the skin for a specific period.
Snehan is performed using substances of vegetable origin such as Til, Erand, Mahua, Sarson, Neem, Karanj, Shaijan, Priyal and Bahera, as well as substances of animal origin such as milk, curd, Ghee, meat, fat and bone tissue. The use of a specific snehan substance also depends upon the season of treatment. Therefore, while the use of Ghee has been recommended during the fall season, oil is the preferred substance during winters and the use of fat and bone marrow has been recommended during the spring season.
Ghee is consumed at the time specified by the treating doctor.
Small sips of warm water are consumed every 45 minutes.
Belches are checked for the presence of ghee.
Once the feeling of complete digestion is ascertained, some warm water is had to ensure complete digestion of ghee.
Food is had only when the person feels hungry.
Light food like porridge etc. is preferred.
3. Abhyanga: The Ayurvedic Daily Massage
Abhyanga means “self-massage with oil,” and according to ancient tradition, it is one of our greatest allies for total health. Doing a daily practice of self-massage nourishes and soothes the nervous system, boosts lymphatic detoxification, improves circulation, nourishes the skin, and promotes overall mind-body balance.
The word for oil in Sanskrit is sneha — which translates to “love” or “affection.” The essence of a plant is its oil, just as the essence of who we are is love. If we keep extracting something down to its purest essence, what remains is love. When you massage your body with oil, you are literally coating it with a layer of affection, as well as a healing touch. Western science supports this fact, showing that when we receive massage, we release a cascade of feel-good hormones into our bloodstream. Research shows that massage can also decrease the stress hormone, cortisol.
Benefits of Abhyanga
Eliminates fatigue, reduces mental stress, creates lymphatic stimulation, enhances sleep, balances all the doshas, promotes a feeling of well-being and bliss, reduces anxiety, alleviates depression, and detoxifies the body.

Shirodhara is a form of Ayurveda therapy that involves gently pouring liquids over the forehead and can be one of the steps involved in Panchakarma.

Shirodhara has a profound impact on the nervous system. That means, the treatment directly and immediately calms, relaxes and has a cleansing effect on the mind and nerves.
