On this seven-day Ayurvedic detox programme youll receive a three-hour Ayurvedic massage and shirodhara or svedana therapy each day. This programme is an ideal introduction and preparation for the more intensive panchakarma (full detox) programme, but is also a suitable option if you simply wish to rest, relax, lose weight, de-stress and address your underlying health issues in greater depth. This programme also includes daily personal lifestyle and health coaching with Danny or Carol, along with optional yoga and meditation. This is Ayurveda UKs most popular retreat choice, with many clients booking from year to year.
