Pancha Karma Program

Pancha Karma is ayurveda’s quintessential cleansing and rejuvenation treatment. It removes deep-seated toxins and balances the doshas, revitalizing 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 Pancha Karma program includes:

  • Ayurvedic consultation (see Tier 1 and Tier 2 below for descriptions)
  • Biofeedback session
  • Daily hatha yoga class
  • Daily cleansing massage
  • Daily oil treatment (Shirodhara & Nasya)
  • Daily steam therapy (Swedhana)
  • Light cleansing diet
  • Oil-based enema (Basti) or other cleansing techniques, as prescribed
  • Evening lectures on ayurveda, cleansing, and meditation
  • Two fresh organic juices daily
Schedule

The program begins Wednesday with an ayurvedic consultation and an evening orientation. Treatments follow on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Depart after lunch on Sunday.

NEW! The Pancha Karma Program is now offering two tiers!

Both Tier 1 and Tier 2 offer the services and treatments listed above. The differences between the two tiers are the level of contact with Dr. Demers and the accommodations.

Tier 1:

This is our popular premier package: It includes all of the services and treatments described above plus a thorough initial evaluation, personalized take-home recommendations, and a final wrap-up session with Dr. Demers. Accommodations are in our beautiful Guest House, where our treatment facilities are also located.

This tier is highly recommended for those who have chronic medical conditions and/or take medications. It is also an excellent choice for those who want more holistic direction and are seeking herbal guidance and lifestyle advice to support their ongoing healing.

Cost for Tier 1:

$2,170 includes all services and treatments plus 4 nights’ private accommodations in our Guest House. Please inquire about additional treatments and extended stays.

Tier 2:

In this tier each participant receives a brief initial assessment from Dr. Demers to guide the weekend treatments. It is suited for those who do not have any health concerns, take no medications, or who already see a holistic prescriber at home. It is ideal for yoga teachers, students and practitioners of ayurveda, Pancha Karma program returnees, and those who are simply stressed or tired from their busy life.

Cost for Tier 2:

$1,150 includes all services and treatments. Accommodations are booked separately, and range from $170 to $200/night. Additional treatments and extended stays are available.

There is a maximum of four participants in each tier for each scheduled session.

For Both Tiers:

A $500 deposit is required at the time of registration.
