Panchakarma is a complete purifying, detoxing and rejuvenating program. Panchakarma is translated into the “five actions.” It involves a detoxifying dietary plan, supportive herbs and personalized body treatments. This ancient, complete cleansing system comes from the integrative healing practice of Ayurveda.

Spring is the natural time of shedding and rebirth. To work with the forces of nature, Ayurveda suggested that you undergo Panchakarma during the spring months of March or April. Panchakarma can be done at any time, but spring is the most powerful time.

This system rids the body of toxins in the body, mind and spirit.

This is a minimum of 3 weeks long.  The process includes a consultation with Panchakarma Technician and Ayurvedic Practitioner, Tresa Laferty.  This consultation is where you share your health challenges and health goals.  Tresa uses this information to create a Panchakarma plan to support your healing path.

The effects of Panchakarma are often deep and profound.  Some common experiences are:

  • Balance weight issues
  • Reduce cholesterol
  • Address anxiety
  • Balance blood pressure
  • Reduce bodily complaints and strain
  • Clarity of mind
  • Improve skin, eyesight and hearing
