Santosha Spring Cleanse
Seasonal Cleanses are comparable to prepping your garden for a season of abundance and beauty. In dedicating some time to our own deep self care, we are giving ourselves support to be the most full version of ourselves possible. Home panchakarma offers the opportunity for the mind, body, and senses to have extra rest and shed layers so that we can be radiant and buoyant. It happens in three stages:
1) The Preparations Stage (Purva Karma) involves preparing the bodily channels and gently loosening up ama (sticky toxic build up) so that it can start to make its way to the digestive system.
2)The Active Cleanse Stage (Panchakarma) Panchakarma means 5 actions - each action assists the ama (toxins) in being eliminated from the body. This is the climax of the cleanse.
3) The Rejuvenation Stage (Rasayana) - the rebuilding, nourishing phase. How we choose to come out of a cleanse is equally as important as the actual cleansing process.
