Panchakarma is the oldest and most sophisticated technology for removing toxins and imbalances from the mind and body, and to rejuvenate your entire system to a state of youthful vitality and well being.
A speciality of Panchakarma is the uniquely balancing effect of massage with herbalised oils, performed in complete synchrony by two highly trained technicians. This is followed by relaxing, herbalised steam baths and a variety of internal cleansing therapies to provide complete elimination of imbalances and impurities in a gentle and natural way. This will be an out patient clinic which is very convenient for everyone

Come and experience the revitalising power of a day of Vedic chanting. The day consists of a perfect balance of extra meditation, pranayama (breathing exercise), Yoga postures and Vedic vibration sound therapy. Dr Tony Nader has discovered that the different vibrations of the verses of the Vedic literature correspond to the different parts and systems of the human physiology. When you listen to the chanting of the forty aspects of the Vedic literature, you feel as if the whole physiology has been restructured and balanced.
The Houghton TM Centre is a building that encompasses the perfect effects of a Sthapatya Veda house (Vedic architecture). This makes experiencing the Vedic sounds in that atmosphere much more healing than another environment.
DATE – Sunday 30th Oct
