Find deep rest, relaxation and healing with the Ayurveda Health Retreat's Royal Spa Panchakarma. Each day you'll receive a two-and-a-half-hour Panchakarma treatment along with yoga, meditation, and pranayama. Enjoy delicious home-cooked Ayurvedic vegetarian meals and discover the quaint town of Alachua.
During your stay, you will be accommodated in a private room.
Panchakarma, the ancient Ayurvedic healing practice, removes ama (toxins) from the body, allowing the rejuvenating energies of the body to flow freely. Many illnesses and diseases result from the build-up of these toxins, impairing the body's natural defenses such as the immune, circulatory, and lymphatic systems. Panchakarma is a gentle process that achieves deep cleansing without discomfort, leaving the body and mind relaxed and rejuvenated.
The Royal Spa Panchakarma retreat features a one-on-one session with the therapist with warm, healing herbal oils. Each day, you will enjoy a two-and-a-half hour of Panchakarma session including:
A one-therapist massage with warm, healing herbal oils
An aromatherapy steam bath with rose water mist
An herbal nasal treatment, great for allergy and sinus problems
Herbal oil gently flowing over your forehead allowing the body, mind and nervous system to experience a deep state of rest, similar to meditation.
Therapeutic herbal and oil enemas (optional; offered for patients that do 5 to 21 days of Panchakarma)
