Panchakarma: A Cleansing & Healing Retreat

Our 4 day retreat is inspired by ancient ayurvedic healing traditions and paired with modern medical therapeutics, backed by science, to deliver real results for you.

Panchakarma is Ayurveda’s quintessential cleansing, healing and rejuvenation treatment. It removes deep-seated toxins and revitalizes both body and mind. This deep cleansing allows healing energy to flow freely through your entire being, leaving you feeling peaceful, calm, and renewed.

The entire retreat is overseen and managed by the Medical Director of the Total Health Center, Dr. Carrie Demers. Dr. Demers will work with your Retreat team to prescribe customized treatments based on your current mental, physical/medical condition. Board-certified in Internal Medicine, Dr. Demers is a holistic physician who blends modern medicine with traditional approaches to health.

The 4 day Retreat includes:

  • An individual ayurvedic consultation with a Medical professional.  This consultation will allow us to customize your treatments to meet your individual needs and support your healing throughout the Retreat.
  • 2 hours of daily relaxation and cleansing treatments, including:
    • 1 full hour for a therapeutic relaxation and cleansing massage.
    • 30 minutes of special oil treatments called Shirodhara and Nasya.  These deeply relaxing treatments use warm oil poured in a gentle stream over the forehead.  The procedure profoundly calms the mind, body and spirit.  It nourishes the hair and scalp, as well as generally aiding in the release of stress and tension.
    • 30 minutes of steam therapy to complete the removal of toxins from your system.  Heat experienced during your steam bath treatment will speed up the chemical process in the body, making it one of the most simple and comfortable ways to rid the body of accumulated toxins.
  • Daily restorative morning hatha yoga class.  Start each morning with gentle refreshing stretches suited to all levels of physical fitness.
  • Enjoy a light cleansing diet with specially prepared meals 3 times a day.
  • 2 daily fresh organic juices to help the cleansing process.
  • 1 hour individual Biofeedback session, which will teach you stress management & breathing techniques that you can use to deepen your cleanse and restore balance to your mind and body.
  • Daily evening lectures on ayurveda, cleansing, and meditation/relaxation techniques.
  • Optional: Oil-based enema (Basti) or other cleansing techniques, as prescribed on the last night of the Retreat.


The Retreat actually begins 2 weeks in advance of arrival date, with intake forms and guidance on eliminating certain foods before you arrive for your stay here to help accelerate the healing benefits of the Cleansing Retreat. Upon arrival on a Wednesday, you will meet with one of our medical staff for an ayurvedic consultation and later that evening attend an orientation. Daily treatments follow on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Sunday will include a follow up meeting with your assigned medical professional, who will have put together a program for you to follow after you depart on Sunday afternoon.
