This Panchakarma(detox) retreat is aimed at balancing the biological energies of the doshas, which represent the unique blends of one's physical, emotional, and mental characteristics.
The treatment is carried out in 3 phases; the first stage is a preparation of the body, the second stage is the principal procedures, and this stage is the post-treatment regimes.
Within each phase, there are several possible therapies; and in-house experts will design your Panchakarma regime after a preliminary diagnosis.
