While studying as an undergrad in India over 20 years ago, I had heard in bits and pieces about this wonderful Ayurvedic treatment called Pancha-karma. I saw how rejuvenated and full of life this classmate of mine would feel after a treatment. I am a male in my early forties. I am in general good health except that I had begun experiencing pain in the feet, a few years back – they would feel tired. I tried over-the-counter sole insert, foot massage, medicated oils, Physical therapy, chiropractic care. Nothing worked. Life events – the arrival of kids, a new job, and a new home added to my stress and I had frequent backaches. Determined to improve the quality of my life, I decided to do something about it. I decided to do Panchakarma with Geetha. I took an entire week off and had the support of my family for rest after I came back from treatment each day. There were clear instructions and it helped me understand what to expect as each day a different area was addressed. Each day, hours of massages with medicated oils worked wonders on my body spirit, and soul. I spent quality time with myself – physical rest for the body, yoga for flexibility, time for reflection for the mind – inspiration to adopt new habits. A new appreciation for these words – compassion, care, and therapeutic come to my mind as I think of what I experienced during the Panchakarma process under Geeta’s care. I felt a remarkable change in my flexibility and energy level within 2-3 days. The pain diminished towards the end of the treatment. Out of the beautiful Panchakarma experience came a resolve to make lifestyle changes – providing an outlet for expression – of creativity and thoughts.
It has been close to a year since I have had Panchakarma and I would wholeheartedly recommend it from such a talented and skilled practitioner as Geeta.
