Panchakarma Treatments
(The traditional detoxification programs of Ayurveda)

At the heart of The Raj in-residence programs are the traditional Ayurveda detoxification therapies, known as "Panchakarma". Guests enjoy 2-3 hours of treatment daily, administered by highly trained Ayurvedic technicians. Gentle and luxurious, these treatments are deeply cleansing, removing toxins and impurities from the tissues and opening the channels of circulation and elimination. Both purifying to the body and relaxing to the nervous system, our Ayurvedic treatment program helps to remove imbalances that are at the basis of many chronic conditions and reactivate the body's own remarkable healing mechanisms. Scientific research verifies that The Raj Treatment Programs remove significant levels of harmful environmental toxins. Case studies report considerable lessening of symptoms of long standing chronic conditions.

Daily therapies are normally composed of three separate treatments administered in sequence over a two to three hour period:

Treatment 1: Ayurveda herbalized oil application and massage (Abhyanga)

This 55-minute massage uses special herbalized oils chosen specifically for you by your Ayurveda Health Consultant. This treatment, administered by two technicians working in synchrony, begins the cleansing process. The heat and friction caused by the motion of the massage improves circulation and starts to loosen the impurities from where they have been lodged in tissues. The quality of the herbalized oil is also very important, since the entire surface area of the body is absorbing the herbalized oil. These special oils help to nourish and cleanse the tissues and soften the channels of elimination.

Treatment 2: Ayurveda heat treatments

Heat is a gentle but effective way to dissolve impurities, open circulation, and relax the entire physiology. After the massage most people receive one of the following heat treatments:

a) Shirodhara: the pouring of warm herbalized oil back and forth across the forehead while you are comfortably lying down with your eyes closed. This treatment is profoundly relaxing to the mind and nervous system. It is especially helpful in relieving the effects of excess mental stress, which can often aggravate chronic conditions.

b) Pizzichili: Two technicians pour a stream warm herbalized oil over the entire body as they perform the massage. The extensive number of herbs cured into the oil help draw out impurities, while balancing and nourishing the physiology.

c) Swedena: This herbalized steam bath creates a purifying effect by heating the entire physiology, increasing sweating, and opening channels of elimination.

d) Pindaswedana: During this treatment the entire body is massaged using a special boluses of milk, oils, herbs, and rice. This procedure is particularly powerful for reducing excess metabolic activity and eliminating its toxic byproducts. It is also effective in relieving pain in joints and muscles.

Treatment 3: Ayurveda Herbalized Enema Treatment (Optional)

Administration of a mild herbal enema after the massage and heat treatments completes the cleansing process. Ayurveda theory describes how the massage and heat treatments drive many of the impurities into the lower bowel area and, therefore, recommends a gentle oil enema as the last step in the purification process. Your Ayurveda Health Consultant will prescribe herbalized enemas appropriate for your condition. After enema administration you will rest awhile, shower, and then continue to rest in your room or join our educational programs as you choose.
