Ayurveda defines health as ‘Swasthya’, which can be explained as ‘state of balanced metabolism, equilibrium of physiological functions (vata, pitta, kapha), proper production & elimination of waste products, normal functioning of bodily tissues with contentment state of mind, sense & self (consciousness).’
The key to prevention of disease & to maintain balance in state of health, Ayurveda emphasises preventive and healing therapies along with various methods of detoxification and rejuvenation. These therapies are dealt under ‘Panchakarma’.
Panchakarma literally means five methods of body purification. These methods are employed in the healthy, to prevent diseases and in the diseased, to treat a number of diseases. These methods are also adopted as part of rejuvenation therapy (Rasayana). There are certain preparatory steps to be taken before the actual Panchakarma are performed. They are called as Poorvakarma. Also there are procedures advised after the actual Panchakarmas. These are called Paschatkarma. This course intends to train students in all these procedures, in a systematic and classical approach, and under the directions of a qualified physician.
Yoga is an integral part of ancient wisdom with coinciding principles with Ayurveda, and plays an important role in healthy living. This course also trains students in basics of yoga practice, so that they can help the physician in imparting yoga instructions to a patient. A skilled student can also demonstrate yoga techniques to a patient under the directions of a physician.
With the increase in awareness about Ayurveda and its non-surgical therapies, more people are opting for Ayurveda treatments. This has increased the demand for skilled Panchakarma therapists multifold.
I-AIM Healthcare has been a pioneer in training Panchakarma therapists for over six years and has successfully trained more than a hundred therapists from all across India. I-AIM Healthcare has almost 100% placement for therapists who have undergone this course.
