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.

In Ayurveda there is an ancient concept of vital points called Marmas and the existence of energy channels (Nadis) within the body, along which energy (Prana) flows to the internal organs. Marma points can be needled, massaged, heated or cupped with therapeutic benefits. Prana can stagnate due to injury or stresses of daily life. By stimulating this flow of energy, health can be maintained or re-stablished. Marmapuncture is a calming and immensely relaxing experience.
