Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word, which literally means science of life or art of living.
Ayurveda is the ancient holistic science of healing which has been practiced for over 5000 on the Indian Subcontinent. Ayurveda offers a holistic approach to good health, where the management of chronic ailments is achieved through diet and a balanced lifestyle. Ayurveda provides the tools to cope with the busiest and stressful life without any harmful side effects. Health care is a highly individualized practice under Ayurvedic principles.
The basis of Ayurveda is that each individual has a unique constitution established at birth and influenced throughout one's life. There are three unique doshas or bodily humor and all of us have different amounts of each. When our doshas are balanced, as, at the time of our birth, they maintain our health and wellbeing, and their imbalance is the cause of disease. Understanding your doshas will help you understand what diet and lifestyle are best for you. Ayurveda teaches us how to live, how to eat, how to exercise, and most importantly how to be healthy and happy.
Ayurveda heals your body, mind, senses, and spirit instead of just treating the symptoms of your ailments. It helps you regain your natural health by purifying and rejuvenating your body with natural remedies.
An Ayurvedic consultation is the first step in your search for a holistic approach to healthcare. You may not necessarily have any health issues, but simply want to improve your health status. The Ayurvedic doctor will use special Ayurvedic diagnostic tools, namely, pulse diagnosis, and tongue diagnosis, to ascertain your doshas and determine the state of your body balance or imbalance.
The initial consultation aims to deliver an accurate health assessment and to guide you on how to plan your diet, including the administration of herbs and home remedies. You will be advised on lifestyle, exercise routines, and treatments best suited to your mind-body constitution.

Panchakarma is a cleansing and rejuvenating program for the body, mind, and consciousness. This five-fold therapy is targeted to the specific needs of the individual, depending on their Ayurvedic constitutional type, their doshic imbalances, age, digestive strength, immune status, and many other factors.
These include oil massages, steam therapy, herbal enemas, nasal administration of herbs and oils, and/or gentle laxatives and emetics. All of these techniques cleanse the body of the ama (toxins) that the tissues have absorbed, and which may contribute to illness.
Panchakarma therapy begins with a private consultation with our qualified Ayurvedic physician Dr. Ram Mani Bhandari who determines your Prakriti (mind-body constitution) and tailors the detox program/therapies best suited to your imbalances and health concerns (if any).
Our Panchakarma packages range from a short 3 days to a longer 30 days and depend upon your health status.
