What is Ayurveda?

Literally translated from Sanskrit, Ayurveda means “Science of Life”. It is the oldest entirely holistic system for health, longevity and beauty which has prevailed over the centuries until now. Its universal and timeless principles are seen as the origins of all treatment by natural remedies-traditions. Accordingly, Ayurveda is known as the mother of medicine. In the ayurvedic philosophy the body, the senses, the spirit, the soul, the behaviour, and the environment are in a state of permanent harmony in a healthy human being. The precise detoxificating applications of the ayurvedic medicine are especially effective in the prevention of diseases, the maintenance of good health, as well as the treatment of chronic malaise.

What is Pancha Karma?

Pancha Karma is the centrepiece of Ayurveda. It is effectively used as detoxificating-, vitalizing-, relaxation- and regeneration-cure. Pancha Karma translates into ‘five-time cleansing’ and is a system of precisely tuned physical treatments and elemination methods. The therapy has been applied and tested for thousands of years. It aims at cleansing the body from harmful residuals and at re-establishing the balance of the three energies, the so called Doshas (Vata, Pitta and Kapha). It revitalizes the immune-system, the powers of natural healing, and it dissolves acute and chronic illness-structures. The therapy brings about a deep mental, spiritual and physical renewal and is the key to a holistic health, beauty, and a long life.
