Ayurveda (translated as “holistic knowledge of life”) incorporates a scientific system of medicine aimed at restoring total well-being through cleansing and rejuvenation – Panchakarma. This classical method of detoxification removes the cause of an illness and corrects the imbalance of the 3 bio-energies of Vata, Pitta and Kapha.
There are five procedures which constitute panchakarma; - Vamana (therapeutic vomiting), Virechena; Vasti (basti) and rakthamakshan (blood-letting, not practised at Surya Lanka). The sequence of treatments is organized according to the ayurvedic principles of –
It is important that a panchakarma cure is administered in these 3 stages as prescribed in the classical texts on Ayurveda. A few massages given in a haphazard way or treatments such as virechena given without the necessary pre-preparation of snehanam does not give a complete detoxification and could even result in unpleasant side-effects.
At Surya Lanka we practice classic, authentic Panchakarma in Sri Lanka. We offer 3 levels of Panchakarma cure. Each level is comprehensive, result oriented; responsive to each guest’s needs and individual medical condition; administered by a team of highly professional, caring doctors and therapists.
