panchakarma retreat with salila

October 2018    

Join me for a profound enhancement  of your life, joy, health, and vitality in beautiful Kerala, India.

If done authentically, a Panchakarma can be challenging even to a native Keralite, but the results are worth their weight in gold.

The organic medicines, massage oils, treatments and diet require some preparation. The doctors give instructions, I share my experiential knowledge with you. This helps you be prepared for many procedures which may make no sense to a westerner.

I prepare you, educate you, help you follow the regimen and cheer you on.

If neccessary, I may be able to assist you in a one-on-one Panchakarma experience.

Please contact me for more information and a quote.
