Pancha Karma is a comprehensive cleansing and rejuvenation program for the body, mind and spirit. The Pancha Karma program with us here at the Hanalei Day Spa, on Kauai, includes pre-purification methods to prepare the body to let go of accumulated toxins, followed by the purification methods themselves.

Recipients experience the lush full-body massage with warm, herbalized infused oils, followed by full body steam treatment, shiro-dhara, salt scrubs, and a number of other ancient healing therapies which, when taken in a specific sequence, these gently and effectively purify the body.

According to Ayurveda, health is a perfect state of balance among the body’s three fundamental energies, or doshas (Vata, Pitta and Kapha), and an equally vital balance among the body, mind and soul. Changes in age, seasonal changes, wrong diet, habits, lifestyle, repressed emotions and stress factors can all act to upset our natural balance, weakening our agni (gastric fire) and leading to accumulation of toxins.

How Pancha Karma Cleanses

These toxins and deep-seated emotions build up in the tissues of the body and can lead to dis-ease if not eliminated. Pancha Karma is a completely natural form of healing which encourages the body to simultaneously let go of its excesses and retrieve its essences.

Pancha Karma purifies and cleanses the subtle channels of the body. Thereby restoring the beautiful wisdom and innate intelligence inherent in each cell.

By removing and cleansing these blocks, the entire physiology is integrated, immunity is strengthened, and the damaging effects of aging are reversed. And then rejuvenation can take place.

The aims and objectives of this science are to maintain the health of a healthy person and to heal the dis-ease of an unhealthy person. This is obtained by restoring the balance of the natural processes in the body. The ancient texts praise Pancha Karma as a seasonal rejuvenation treatment for ensuring balance year in and year out.

Ayurveda recommends 7 days for a more complete rejuvenation experience. However, due to popular demand, we offer 1-7 days.
