Detox Options

Here’s a bit about the progression of Ayurvedic detox treatments:

It starts by following a special diet for a first week before treatments.

The second week you’ll receive massage and Ayurvedic treatments at the clinic to prepare your body for a strong acting cleansing technique.

The third week is dedicated to resting and easing back into eating foods which are appropriate to your constitution.

All Panchakarma candidates follow the Atma Ayurveda Annual Pass so that you can maintain the results you get from the cleanse.

This is created from experience: I have seen many, many people finish panchakarma, then leave treatment centers without a structure and fall back into old habits and have serious setbacks in their health.

I vowed to give my clients proper support before and after.

If you are new to panchakarma, it is only natural that you underestimate the time needed to protect afterwards.  

We are all out of touch with what I call “bio time” – allowing the body the time it actually needs, rather that what fits into our busy schedules.

Panchakarma is a wonderful slowing down, with deep physical, emotional and spiritual breakthroughs. We want to create circumstances wherein your experience can unfold, so it becomes smoothly integrated into your ‘real life’.

The post-panchakarma support of the Annual Pass continues your feeling of freedom and ease, long after the treatment intensive itself is completed.

5 Easy steps to start

Step 1 Schedule an intake consultation to start pre-cleanse advice

Step 2 Set dates for your Panchakarma

Step 3 Follow the preparation & treatments

Step 4 Feel light, clear and complete again

Step 5 Keep the results! Your full Panchakarma includes with a free year support in Vitality Recharge

These simple steps ensure you will experience a deep detox, and be able to embed the effects into your routine, root your new mindset, and set up a clean lifestyle for years to come!

What is Full Panchakarma

In Panchakarma, your experience happens in treatment cycles. Each treatment cycle leads up to a ‘strong action’ (karma). Based on your condition you are typically recommended 1 or 2 treatment cycles.

First Treatment Cycle

A single treatment cycle includes proper steps leading up to a strong therapeutic action:


  • Pre-PK consultation
  • Home Preparation* (1 week to 2 months)
  • Treatment cycle – 5-7 days of preparations at the clinic including massage, etc
  • Strong action (vomina, virechana, basti etc)
  • Recovery & Rasayana therapy
  • Recovery diet, regaining strength and full capacity

Second Treatment Cycle

If needed and you select an extended Panchakarma.

Includes first treatment cycle, then directly after a couple rest days, we start massage, etc again to prepare for second action:


  • Second Treatment Cycle – 3 daysof preparations at clinic
  • Second strong action
  • Rest & Rasayana therapy
  • Recovery diet, regaining strength and full capacity

Can I do my PK any time of year?

It is important to catch the right window of time for your health condition. After a complete evaluation during your intake appointment, Susan will be able to recommend which of the 5 strong actions are needed, and that will indicate what the window of opportunity is to avoid having to modify the intensity or series of treatments.

A Typical Treatment Day

During your Panchakarma sequence, there are Treatment Days. On those days, plan to be at the clinic between 2-3+ hours.

A full body treatment will be selected for you based on your condition as a base treatment. These treatments could include:

  • abhyangha – herbal oil
  • udvartana – dry exfoliating
  • pinda swedan – steaming herb bundles

Typically your PK starts with udvartana and progresses to abhyangha

Your treatment day may also include one of the following:

  • Head Massage – Face, head and neck with special attention to marma points
  • STEAM – Opens purification channels & drives the herbal oil deeper; Special seated box to protect the head from heat
  • Nasya Treatment – herbal nose drops selected for your condition

You also have the option of adding on a variety of our signature Bliss Therapies

This DEFINES the holistic health experience

After panchakarma, the mind becomes super clear

but the body remains delicate at first, for about a month. It is enters a longer phase where it is rewiring itself around how it can function in this new, clean reality with higher functioning cells and tissues, and upregulating those functions.

This is a process of your biological body and needs to follow ‘ “bio time”. I personally have seen panchakarma’s effects extending into 3 months, which is fantastic!! But it also gives the obvious challenge: you’ve already taken precious time out of your schedule to interrupt disease progress, how are you going to continue to support that AND go back to full time work, play and social life?

So to allow the maximum extension of the effects, and protect the process,  there needs to be a structured support in place to help the individual continue the results & avoid going straight back into damaging eating, lifestyle or stress patterns.

Panchakarma Taster

A Panchakarma Taster is a short cleanse for people who are unable to commit to a full PK
