The Maharishi Ayurveda Treatments

The Maharishi Ayurveda Treatments

Treatments are recommended by the physician according to your imbalances. When doing Panchakarma, you may have to start with a pre-treatment whose purpose is to optimize the elimination of toxins. Medicated oils and treatment pastes are prepared with Ayurvedic herbs and are chosen especially for you. They can be strengthened with essential oils. According to the Ayurvedic tradition, ladies are treated by ladies, men by men. Oils, milk, cerals, Ghee and honey used in our treatments are organic.
