Panchakarma is derived from two words, "pancha" and "karma".
The former means five, and the latter means action. So Panchakarma
basically means wholesome treatment through 5 actions. Panchakarma is a
five-fold therapy and skillfully combines the natural healing purposes
of the five elements of nature - Earth (Prithvi), Air (Vayu), Water
(Jal), Sky (Akash) and Fire (Agni). Our body is made up of these
elements. These are the elements that make up the entire universe. Thus,
healing a part of universe through nature is what Panchakarma is all
about. It is like tuning up your car. Any imbalance will be taken care
of and made sure that the body and mind are thoroughly cleansed, which
in turn cleanses the soul automatically.
The Panchakarma treatment is based entirely on a person's body type.
The treatment differs from individual to individual. The "doshas"
or the imbalances in the body are first treated through oiling and
heating of the person. People going for Panchakarma treatment are
supposed to follow certain strict rules regarding diet and in take of
food before and during the treatment. It is a divine experience and a
must have if you are visiting Kerala. If you are suffering from any
mental tension or physical stress, Kerala Panchakarma is the thing for
you. So get set to live once again!
