“Panchakarma” refers to the classical cleansing and rejuvenation therapies of Ayurvedic medicine, which have been practiced for thousands of years to effectively improve health by strengthening immunity, removing stress, restoring enthusiasm and slowing the aging process, among many other benefits.
Programs are individually designed to gently and effectively remove toxins from the bodily channels and to help restore digestive power, the basis of metabolic health in Ayurvedic medicine. Programs can be any odd number of days. Most people benefit from a 5-7 day program, though shorter or longer choices may suit your health status. I have named my program “Urban PK” because I am offering this service in the comfort of your own home. That’s right, I will come to you to pamper you! All you have to do is commit and take the time away from your responsibilities.

Panchakarma in Alberta
Panchakarma is the classical cleansing and rejuvenation method of Ayurveda. PK is both curative and preventative. Each program is carefully planned and carried out to suit your individual needs, and must be done at a right time for the unique circumstances. I have created this unique “Urban PK” for those who cannot or simply don’t want to take the long trip to India to experience these traditional cleanse methods. If you feel that you are a suitable candidate for a three-day (nine days in all) or a five-day (15 days in all) program, including preparation and follow-up, please enquire with me regarding my upcoming PK schedule from May to September. Longer programs may also be available. These opportunities are limited and they are booked quickly, so it’s wise to reserve your place in advance. Program investment is $575 per day.
Spring through Fall in Alberta is an ideal time and place to move the doshas back to their optimum sites and functions.

Prior to Panchakarma
It is generally better if you have been following an Ayurvedic lifestyle prior to booking your PK program. Each day’s procedures are designed to support the best interest of your specific health situation. Consult Jessica prior to booking your PK program to ensure your needs can be met with panchakarma. Prior consultation will help ensure appropriate individualization of your program, including your food program, treatments, yoga and lifestyle measures. PK acts physically, emotionally and spiritually to help purify and restore the body, mind and consciousness.
It is generally better if you continue to follow an Ayurvedic lifestyle following a PK program. Each day’s procedures are designed to support the best interest of your specific health situation and will aid proper rejuvenation. Diet and lifestyle are two pillars to sustaining a healthy lifestyle. In order to sustain the positive results and changes from your PK and to be sure your digestive power remains strong, it is wise to continue the daily routine, along with any other diet and lifestyle suggestions provided to you by Jessica for the recommended length of time, if not longer.
Pregnancy, menstruation, lactation, active infection, spreading conditions, extreme underweight or overweight, certain cancers, hypertension, angina and congestive cardiac conditions, etc. Call for prior consultation.
