Panigram Spa and Wellness Center’s goal is to help our guests achieve balance in their mind, body, and spirit. Our services are based on the ancient art/science of Ayurveda which was developed here on the Indian subcontinent over 5,000 year ago. Ayurveda is a Sanskrit term that means “the knowledge of life”. Nutrition, exercise, massage, herbal treatments, meditation, and purification regimens are combined to bring the body back into equilibrium with nature.
In Ayurveda, each person has a prakruti (personal constitution) that is formed at conception. Your prakruti is defined in terms of doshas which are combinations of the five basic elements: ether, air, fire, water, and earth. Each person has all three doshas – vata, pitta, and kapha – though in most people one or two of the doshas are more dominant.
While your prakruti is fixed throughout your lifetime, interaction with the environment causes your mind and body to shift. If it shifts too far from your natural state you become imbalanced, which leads to physical illness and/or mental stress. Ayurveda strives to bring your body back to its natural, balanced state.
Because everyone’s prakruti is different, all of our services are tailored to meet your individual needs. We recommend that you begin with our complementary 20 minute wellness assessment. Our counselors will recommend a variety of treatments based on your personal profile that will help restore, refresh, and rejuvenate you.
20 minutes – complimentary
We recommend that all of our guests take advantage of our complimentary wellness assessment. Our counselors will ask you questions to determine your prakruti and dominant doshas. They will also consult with you about any health concerns that you may want to address (back pain, headaches, stress, weight loss, etc.) At the end of the session our counselors will provide you with a set of recommendations for exercise, nutrition, and treatments that are specifically tailored to help bring your mind, body, and spirit back to a state of balance.
Panigram was built on the principle of harmony – harmony with nature, harmony with our host community, and harmony with ourselves. Consequently, we have integrated ayurvedic nutritional principles into our restaurant and tea house menus. Ayurvedic philosophy tells us that freshly prepared food is much better for our bodies than old food, canned food, or food with lots of chemicals and preservatives. Most of the food at Panigram is organically grown right on the property and is freshly prepared each day.
