Certificate programme on Panchakarma and Keraleeya specialities (CPKS)


Panchakarma presents a unique approach of Ayurveda with specially designed purvakarma (pre-treatment) and pancha shodhana (Five purificatory therapies). Though Panchakarma is a separate speciality in Ayurveda, it is closely associated and customized with all other specialities. Panchakarma should be perceived not merely as a shodhana therapy, but it has wider range of therapeutics like langhana, brimhana, rasayana etc. The therapies helps to eliminate the deeply seated metabolic toxin and revitalise the tissues, but it should be administered only after considering the ritu (season) and prakriti (body constitution) of the individual.

There has been a phenomenal increase in the demand for the specialised therapies of Ayurveda, particularly Panchakarma, not only for the treatment of the disease, but also for prever and promotive health care. Textual knowledge of Panchakarma based on syllabus based study is insufficient many a times in managing many conditions, and practical implementation of therapies requires expertise.

Kerala has made its own platform in the field of Panchakarma based on the immense contribution made by Ashtavaidyas and other traditional practitioners. This was well revised by various doyens and evolved as- “Keraleeya Panchakarma”. Now we are opening all those exclusive therapies before you for the expansion of the science. In a nutshell, a golden opportunity for you to acquire the right skills and knowledge at the right place from the right faculty in Ayurveda.
