Panchakarma, derived from Sanskrit meaning “five actions,” is a profound Ayurvedic therapeutic process aimed at restoring the body’s natural processes through purification and rejuvenation. In Ayurveda, the emphasis is on preventive and healing therapies, including methods to eliminate toxins and promote overall health and wellness.
The primary intention of Panchakarma is to strengthen the immune system, prevent diseases, and enhance the body’s constitutional balance. By eliminating toxins and toxic conditions from the body and mind, Panchakarma helps reverse the negative effects of stress, slow down the aging process, and improve mental clarity, energy, and vitality. It brings about deep relaxation and a profound sense of well-being.
According to Ayurveda, our natural state is one of health, happiness, and inner well-being. However, in our busy and toxic modern world, our physical and mental systems accumulate toxins, leading to a deterioration in bodily functioning. Panchakarma is designed to reverse these effects and restore the body’s natural state of health and wellness. By cleansing the body of toxins, restoring balance, and improving bodily function, Panchakarma helps sustain this process and supports positive lifestyle changes.

The set up
Elke provides a well-structured setup for the Panchakarma program, ensuring optimal results and a transformative experience. Based on your unique constitution and imbalances, you will receive a personalized, minimum 10-day individual program. It is essential to commit sufficient time to the process and make space in your schedule for this duration. Some days of the program may be challenging, and Elke may recommend significant bed rest or rest in the comfort of your own home.
Your full availability is required throughout the entire Panchakarma journey. Elke will guide you every step of the way, making daily assessments to determine the course of action for the following day. As every individual is different, the program is not fixed but customized to your specific needs. To maximize the benefits, it is advised to minimize the use of electronic devices such as computers, mobile phones, and iPads, as these can disrupt the system’s balance.
We recommend not planning any additional activities during the days of your program. Ample rest will be needed as your body works diligently to eliminate toxins and waste products. By prioritizing rest and minimizing physical activity, the detoxification process can proceed more efficiently, facilitating optimal results and overall well-being.
Kind words from my clients.
The first time I met Elke, there she was running a clarity breathing workshop, I felt here loving presence and connection immediately. Her massage techniques are very involved and deep. Subsequently I had shamanic treatment from Elke when I was going through a difficult process of life, and the healing she channelled was such pure grace. I recommend Elke if you either need an amazing massage or assistance in clearing deep blockages.
Elke has changed my life. My Panchakarma with Elke left me feeling like brand new and not only that, it removed so much programming within me which was holding me back from living a more fulfilled life.
The Panchakarma with Elke was a transformative experience. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to heal or just have a rest and a spring clean. I found the process was cleansing both physically and emotionally. The massages I received were gentle and relaxing, yet I felt them working deep into my body. After the last treatment I felt liberated and calm, the dharma treatment, where oil was poured on my forehead was the most relaxing treatment I have had. I felt at one with myself and the universe.
