AYURVEDA AT PURE NATURE AYURVEDA HOUSE
Our traditional Ayurveda area has an entirely open design and is completely embedded in natural surroundings. This enables our guests, for example, to deeply immerse themselves into the surrounding natural environment while taking a herbal bath. We also have our own in-house doctor’s practice, where medical consultations and acupuncture are carried out.
Panchakarma Cleansing Cure
Our range of services includes our customised, intensive PANCHAKARMA cleansing treatment.
An intensive cleansing of the entire organism, the treatment is designed to free the entire body of metabolic toxins, to cleanse and clarify, but also to eliminate the mental and spiritual elements that help cause illnesses. For this treatment a two-week, or better still a three-week spa treatment is recommended. At PURE NATURE AYURVEDA HOUSE, irrespective of the classic spa components, we endeavour to customise your treatment as much as possible wholly in alignment with your medical indications.
This treatment is designed simply as a course of relaxation and rejuvenation for those wishing to discover Ayurveda. Massages, herbal baths, steam baths, healthy eating; but not including the Panchakarma cleansing treatment. (2-3 treatments a day).
Nutrition is an important part of any Ayurveda spa and is designated as one of the primary components of the treatment.
Each day you will be served balanced meals carefully coordinated to your individual physique. Fully balanced in the Ayurvedic sense means encompassing the full range of flavours such as… sweet, sour, salty, spicy, sharp, herbs (astringent). And always fresh from the local region!
