Ayurvedic Treatment Menu
Yogaveda offers an extensive range of traditional healing therapies that are designed to cleanse, rejuvenate & rebalance the mind and body. They provide a natural way to reconnect to that innate healing intelligence which is capable of constantly rejuvenating itself, but often is obscured by stress and toxic accumulation. This sense of reconnection is a profoundly powerful healing experience.
Purvakarma: The preparatory procedures of Panchakarma, the ultimate deep tissue detox.
Ayurveda prescribes Purvakarma to facilitate the removal of ama (toxins) from the body’s deep tissues (dhatus). Purva means before & Karma means actions.
At Yogaveda, let us create an experience of escape from the harshness of the outside world.
Step into a magical healing space to rest your weary bones & feel the softness of the white sheets cocooning you.
Give yourself permission to be soft – while exploring stillness to sink into a deep healing space within.
Distance yourself from the demands of your life.
