PANCHAKARMA: THE QUEEN OF AYURVEDA
Most western lifestyle diseases are triggered by over-acidification of the body, excess toxins, emotional distress or a combination of all three. Panchakarma treatments aim to deal with a wide range of lifestyle diseases, including disorders of the digestive system, the cardiovascular system, skin and joints, as well as migraines and depression. Chronic illnesses also respond extremely well to this form of treatment.
The Sanskrit word Panchakarma means ‘five procedures’ and encompasses all five pillars of Ayurvedic purification. It is a highly effective and profound detoxification method on both a physical and spiritual level. Each of the ‘five procedures’ serves to release toxins with the aim of purifying both body and mind. Toxins are removed via the bowel, mouth, nose and skin.
Panchakarma at the Ayurveda Resort Sonnhof in Tyrol starts with diagnosis and is carried out in two parts: a preparatory treatment followed by the detoxification process. Its deeply harmonising effects unfold during the main treatment, which is supported by soothing Ayurvedic massages. Heat therapy, Ushnodaka therapy, herbal medicine, Yoga, Qigong and meditation are further elements of the Panchakarma programme at the Sonnhof.
The Panchakarma programme at the Ayurveda Resort Sonnhof is available as a 7, 10, 14 or 21-day package. During your individually tailored Panchakarma treatment, you will be looked after by the Sonnhof team of experts. Pulse diagnosis is performed by Dr Gaurav Sharma, an Ayurveda specialist.
