01. Panchakarma Treatment
Ayurveda emphasizes preventative and healing therapies along with various methods of purification and rejuvenation.
Ayurveda is more than a mere healing system, it is a science and art of appropriate living which helps to achieve longevity. It can also guide every individual in the prevention of disease and long term maintenance of health. To achieve this balanced state of body, mind and consciousness, Ayurveda prescribes Panchakarma Therapy for the cleansing of body toxins
Panchakarma is a Sanskrit word that means "five actions" or "five treatments."
This is a process used to clean the body of toxic materials left by disease and poor nutrition.
Shirovasti is considered more of a palliative (Shamana ) treatment that an eliminative (Shodhana) one.The treatment is usually preceded by oleation (Sheehan ) and sudation ( Swedana). A leather sleeve of about six to eight inches in length is placed on the shaven head of the patient and a ban (varti) tied around the forehead to keep in place. Kneaded dough is used to line the inside of this sleeve and ensure that it does not leak. Oil is then poured into the sleeve and allowed to remain on the head for a while. The oil commonly used is Ksheerabala or Dhanwantaram, The length of time the oil should be kept there is determined by the severity of the disease. Usually it is up to fifty minutes for diseases caused by severe Vata disorders.
This treatment is prescribed for disorders like facial paralysis, cataract, deafness, earache, insomnia and other diseases that afflict the cranial nerves. Patient is seated in an upright position, and medicinal oil is poured into a leather sleeve of about six to eight inches in length, and kept for some time.
03. Abhyangam Back
Abhyangam is a popular body massage in ayurveda. The word abhyanga itself means to massage.
In Ayurveda, the Abhyangam massage has become popular because of its effective way of conditioning the body. Abhyangam can be used therapeutically. The massage is designed around each individual, to suit his or her disease or condition. An ayurvedic physician can assess this and will then decide on the appropriate oils and the exact way of massage. Abhyangam can increase the production of white blood corpuscles and antibodies, which provide more resistance against viruses and diseases.
This helps the defense mechanism in the body and increases immunity towards environmental changes. In this way abhyangam massage is a protector, preserver and a rejuvenator, increasing self-confidence and will power. To massage is to exercise the nervous system.
PIZHICHIL is a relaxing, soothing and rejuvenating treatment with medicated warm oil used in a continuous stream for a definite period for the whole body (excluding head & neck).
It is used to effectively treat arthritis, ageing, general weakness, paralysis etc. ’Pizhichil’ and ’Sarvangadhara’ are technically the same.
’Pizhichil’ literally means ’squeezing’. Here, warm medicated oil is squeezed over the patient’s body from a piece of cloth that is periodically dipped in a vessel containing the oil. In Sarvangadhara, oil is poured over the patient’s body from pitchers.
Pizhichil requires a lesser quantity of oil when compared to Sarvangadhara.Before beginning Pizhichil, a suitable type of oil should be applied to the head and body of the patient. In some cases, a talam is also applied on the head and bandaged with leaves.
ELAKIZHI is an innovative classical massage with medicated leaves and is used to tackle joint pain, muscle cramps, stress and arthritis.
