Why Pancha Karma?
Pancha Karma is the purification therapy used in Ayurveda as a means of prevention as well as working with a wide variety of health concerns, offering the most effective treatment for cleansing the body while seeking to eliminate the root cause of disease. Pancha Karma translates to the five actions, referring to the five primary procedures intended to cleanse, balance and restore the body, emotions and mind.
Ayurvedic medicine is the oldest healing system in the world, originating in India some 3,000–5000 years ago. Defined as the science of life, Ayurveda teaches us about the world we live in by understanding the elements of existence from a gross to subtle level, explaining the energetics of nature and how these fundamental forces interact and influence our body, energy, mind and spirit. Pancha Karma is founded upon these central concepts of Ayurveda, which state that disease is caused by not living in harmony with these forces of Nature, generating mental misunderstandings or imbalances and physical accumulation of toxic substances. When the body is the liberated from toxic build-up and the mind cleared of unwholesome mental habits, the innate intelligence of our physical system is free to exercise its inherent rejuvenating capabilities. The main tools of this practice support digestive health, the cleansing of toxins, and balancing of emotions of the mind to create a sustainable life of harmony between our spirit, mind, senses and body.
In Ayurvedic medicine, Pancha Karma is used to treat a wide array of imbalances, including ones that are chronic, metabolic or stress-related in origin.
Pancha Karma has been used to support treatment of:
allergies, arthritis, asthma, cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, colitis, high cholesterol, depression, diabetes, digestive disorders, fertility complications, heart disease, hormone imbalances, hypertension, irritable bowel syndrome, immune disorders, infections, inflammation, insomnia, life changes, lyme disease, nervous disorders, obesity, skin problems, stress, trauma, ulcers, weight loss. Pancha Karma can also be used as general preventative health care to support cleansing, immunity and energy, as well as clarity of thought and movement.
What to Expect
To begin your Pancha Karma program there is a thorough examination and diagnosis by your Ayurvedic practitioner, who determines the details of your personalized Pancha Karma program. Pancha Karma is designed to calibrate your unique constitution as we work with a specific and deeply individualized plan of approach. Herbs, dietary and lifestyle changes may be recommended before, during and after your stay. Upon registration you will receive your consultation packet that can be sent to us prior to your arrival.
Treatments can vary in length from a couple days to a few weeks. At the center patients are treated around the clock with supervision, dietary therapy, prepared meals, gentle yoga asana, meditation and/or breath therapies, yoga nidra, ayurvedic massage, and other therapies such as shirodhara, svedana and basti.
Located at the beautiful Chenay Bay Beach Resort on the East side of the island of St Croix guests can conveniently fly into the STX Henry Rohlenson Airport where a taxi will bring you to the location.
Private accommodations in your own private villa and bath over looking the Caribbean Sea and on sight pool will create a luxurious surrounding for time in nature outside of therapies and cleansing practices.
Meeting Carlisle and Zap has been a life changing experience for us. The two of them have so much knowledge, and a genuine passion in their teaching. They balance each other beautifully in all aspects and their teachings are so complete and rich. We feel every yogic experience we have with them, whether being asanas, theory lessons, meditation etc makes us open our eyes more, increases our understanding and makes all our daily experiences fuller and more meaningful. Having teachers like C&Z is a gift we wish everyone could have the chance to experience.
