Panchakarma is an ancient tradition of holistic cleansing, rebalancing and restoration to health, happiness and peace of mind.  The word Panchakarma translates as Pancha - Five and Karma - Actions.  Through Ayurvedic Wellness Counseling, your unique body constitution (prakruti), and any imbalances (vakruti) are revealed.  If your vakruti or imbalances are left unchecked and not address to bring back into balance, they become the roots of disease.   Panchakarma practices are implemented to assist in the relief of the influences of your imbalances or vakruti.  A specific cleansing and purifying diet and lifestyle guidance is done to prepare the body mind and spirit for Panchakarma.  Then a protocol of cleansing purifications or the five actions are designed to meet your unique health challenges.  There are five specific categories of actions or karmas that are used in the cleansing and restoring practices of Ayurveda and your counseling session will help determine which of these karma would be appropriate to assist you in your return to balance, health and harmony.
​1.  Vamana (Herbal Medicated Emesis)
2.  Virechana (Herbal Medicated Purgation)
3.  Vasti (Herbal Medicated Enema)
4.  Nasya (Herbal Medicated Nasal Administration)
5.  Raktamoksha (Blood Letting: 
not done in the United States)
​During the course of a Panchakarma Purification, there are several traditional Ayurvedic body techniques that assist in the loosening and
elimination of toxicity called (Ama) from the tissues of the body.

Ayurvedic Wellness Counseling

​​​​~ Pranic Healing - Chi Reisage 
The inner journey to healing is rich with insights gained by engaging in self inquiry.  If we are living a life out of balance, over time we will begin to manifest various pains and illnesses.  These imbalances can take many forms such as muscle tension, joint pain, fibromayalgia, skin irritations, headaches, diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, emotional upheaval, addictions, etc...  The healing techniques applied through Chi Reisage assist individuals in the process of self inquiry to discover the roots of their imbalances and begin the process of working toward better balance and harmony.  Each session of Chi Reisage is individualized as each person's body, mind, spirit will require certain forms of healing techniques to help bring about their optimal health in the moment.  Some of the techniques used in a session include heart centered listening, hands on gentle touch, reiki healing, pranic healing, aroma therapy, crystal healing, creative visualization, sound therapy, and neuroliguistic programing.  Chi Reisage helps the individual release physical, emotional, and spiritual imbalances that have contributed to disharmony within their being. 
Once these imbalances are relieved, the true and radiant self can shine through with grace, clarity. and creativity.​​
