Healing and relaxation from tradition

Ayurveda is the oldest traditional healing of mankind. Three thousand years ago, it had an university character. There already existed independent specialist areas such as internal medicine, surgery, gynaecology or paediatrics. In a brilliant way, theory and practice were interrelated, rational thought and spiritual development were not opposites, but complementary.

Ayurveda sees man as a unity of body, mind and soul, which is in constant interaction with the environment.

The human body is in constant inner movement and renewal.

In its 100 trillion cells, a quadrillion of chemical reactions takes place every second – an almost unimaginable number with 31 zeros. In the same second several million cells are broken down and replaced by newly formed cells.

And despite the many stresses that endanger this inner balance on a daily basis, the human organism is able to maintain its health and performance largely independently for decades.

Our Center

Our doctors and therapists are leading organs of today ‘s Ayurvedic medicine and have practiced this traditional customs for several generations.

The ayurvedic pulse diagnosis and the holistic therapy of chronic diseases are the focus of most treatment methods. These are always performed in silence, which leads to a state of deep relaxation for body and soul.

Our center offers a variety of classic spa treatments, ayurvedic treatments, holistic treatments for several days and specially adapted ayurvedic treatments according to the Panchakarma principle.

The Panchakarma Principle

Panchakarma is a system of precisely coordinated physical treatments. This therapy, which has been tried and tested for thousands of years, is aimed at purifying the organism gently and permanently.

This is possible because the individual steps of the Panchakarma system are extremely systematically free from toxins. The therapeutic sequence consists of three steps:

1) Release of toxins

As a prelude to the treatment sequence, environmental toxins and body-metabolic toxins accumulated in the body are dissolved – almost always with fat-soluble substances. There are a large number of different, extremely pleasant oil massages and diets that serve this purpose.

Thus, toxins that bind only to fats and are normally extremely difficult to remove from the cells can also be released again. To drive toxins from the organism is the most important goal of Panchakarma.

2) Transport in the direction of the intestine

Subsequently, the basic turnover of the body is increased by a targeted metabolic activation. In this treatment phase, the patient enjoys medicinal herb baths, heat packs and compresses or even gentle massages with healing – promoting substances.

Whole-body oils are also part of this category. These measures emit the previously dissolved pollutants with the blood stream towards the intestine.

3) Elimination

The substances dissolved in the first two stages are then transported to the intestine and are systematically eliminated from the body by enemas or forced discharge by the use of Aryuvedic medication This ensures that the cleansing and detoxification of the body is really completed and that mobilized pollutants do not return to the cells.

4) Panchakarma treatments

The Ayurvedic doctor according to the disease pattern individually arranges the Panchakarma treatments or disorder pattern after a thorough diagnosis.

Thus the respective constitutional type of the three doshas and the general constitution of the patient are taken into account. The highest principle in all Ayurveda treatments is their harmlessness: the doctor recognizes the measures that promote the patient’s balance without overburdening the self-regenerating powers.

The gentle, profound treatments of the Panchakarma system are indicated for almost all diseases. Once the organism has been cleansed, all other forms of therapy are more effective. The healing powers are then clearly activated, and the organism can recover even more quickly with the help of Ayurveda herbal preparations.

In addition, Panchakarma also has a preventive character: Regularly carried out, this general overhaul ensures that solid slag’s cannot accumulate at all and thus future diseases are removed from the outset. The consequence is a health and resilience of the body that goes far beyond the normal level, which leaves the individual unaged for a long time.

Likewise, the Panchakarma cure creates a mental balance that supports optimism, self-assurance and healthy joie in all living conditions.
