Panchakarma Therapies and Treatments Offered by the California College of Ayurveda Spa

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 06, 2013

Panchakarma is traditionally used in Ayurvedic Medicine to heal a variety of diseases. It is an intensive therapy best performed at a time when the patient has adequate time to rest. Panchakarma can last between 7-30 days. Panchakarma is unlike any other detoxification treatments because it is designed to remove ama (toxins) and excess dosha. Ayurveda links the occurrence of ama in the body and a weak digestive system to the cause of such chronic conditions such as candida, chronic fatigue syndrome, chronic respiratory disease, migraine headaches, among other conditions. The process of Panchakarma removes ama and clears the way for the body to re-establish an internal state of balance and harmony.

Panchakarma has been used for thousands of years to establish harmony between body and mind and renew our internal energy. The Ayurvedic Spa at the California College of Ayurveda offers comprehensive panchakarma therapies with highly qualified Clinical Ayurvedic Specialist and Pancha Karma Specialists. The Ayurvedic Spa California announces special 2013 packages for rejuvenation and detoxification in its facilities in Nevada City, California. For more details visit or call 530-478-9100

About Panchakarma
Panchakarma therapy begins with proper preparation. This includes several days or weeks of a special diet and herbs which begin the process of loosening up the ama and bringing it back to the digestive system for elimination. While the person is eating special foods and taking special herbs, oil and heat therapies are applied. These include the deeply relaxing therapies of Shirodhara, Ayurvedic massage, and Svedana.

During [Ayurveda massage] (Abhyanga) two practitioners perform a choreographed hand dance upon the body. Using oils blended with special herbs, this form of massage specifically loosens up the ama stored in the tissues so that it can move back to the digestive system. Not only is it cleansing, but it is deeply relaxing. Ayurvedic massage can be administered by itself or as a part of Panchakarma.

Shirodhara is a unique therapy where the client lies down upon a massage table with their eyes covered. Then, a specially prepared warm herbal oil is poured in a thin steady stream through a spicket directly onto the forehead and sixth chakra. This blissful therapy purifies the mind, alleviates anxiety, reduces headaches and expands awareness. Shirodhara can be administered by itself or as part of a Panchakarma regime.

Swedana is a full-body steam therapy. Special herbs are fused into the steam and together the heat and herbs dilate the channel systems of the body allowing the stored ama to move back into the digestive system.

Once all of the ama is back in the digestive system, the next phase is to eliminate it from the body. This is achieved by the administration of a purgative to cleanse the small intestine and herbal enemas to cleanse the colon. A special form of cleansing is applied to the sinuses called nasya. Following the application of oil and heat over the sinuses, the herbal oils are administered directly into the nasal passages. This procedure not only eliminates ama but is helpful in the treatment of chronic allergic sinusitis and sinus headaches.

The California College of Ayurveda also offers Ayurvedic Yoga Therapy training.
