Panchakarma is a three – stage process
Stage 1 – Purva Karma : Toxins are loosened from various tissues and mobilized towards the digestive system. Purva Karma begins with Abhyanga, an oil massage performed by two technicians simultaneously with synchronizing movements. During this procedure, the whole body, from head to toe, is massaged with herbal oil. Oil is also taken internally. The massage oil and oral oil help to loosen all toxins within the seven layers of tissue.
Stage 2 – Pradhan Karma: The main phase, consists of the five purification procedures, in Panchakarma, literally meaning five purification procedures.
Stage 3 – Paschat Karma: It involves restoration of strong digestive enzymes and rejuvenation of tissues. This stage is designed to nourish, strengthen, and balance the newly detoxified tissues. The aim is to establish increased energy levels, strengthen the immune system and increase longevity. This is accomplished by taking strengthening herbs after the first two stage are completed.
