My Experiences of Ayurveda, Panchakarma
After experiencing the benefits of Ayurvedic massage treatments whilst on holidays in India, it has been an enormous blessing to discover Karin. Her extensive knowledge, experience and very loving nature make her a highly credible practitioner.
The principles of Ayurveda make very good sense to me as I seek to improve my health and live a more balanced lifestyle. The health benefits I have gained in a very short time through the massage treatments, herbs and diet have been amazing!
Recently I travelled to the city for two weeks of the Panchakarma treatment. The only way I can try to explain the outcome of this amazing experience is by the responses of my family, friends and colleagues upon my return home. I’ve had the most lovely and flattering comments about how great I look to how much I’m glowing and how my skin and hair look amazing! Of course I feel so ‘clean’ and so well, and now I’m very conscious of maintaining this incredible wellness by being more vigilant in practising the basic Ayurvedic principles especially the diet to balance my doshas.
Thank you Karin …for your very caring and professional approach and especially for maintaining the authenticity and integrity of Ayurveda – a very important and powerful ancient health system.

Thank you so much for this beautiful, healing experience!
Thank you so much for this beautiful, healing experience! I am so grateful for everything over the past two weeks. You are an amazing healer, practitioner and teacher!
Real healing only happens when one can be open, feel vulnerable and surrender in the presence of the practitioner, and you definitely create that space – so thank you!
This has been such an incredible learning experience for me, about myself, about health physically, mentally and spiritually, and about Ayurveda! And thank you for the opportunity to stay here too, it made it that much more special for me! Stepping away from daily habits and into this sanctuary you have created here! I’m feeling so inspired now for life, my mind is so much more clear, my tummy doesn’t feel as heavy and I have consistent energy throughout the day. So thank you, and also a special thank to Aki, Talu and Irena for their support during the Panchakarma too! My mind is now filled with all the knowledge you have passed on to me, I feel so blessed to have stumbled upon Ayurveda and all the beauty it has to offer!
Much love, A.”

The Panchakarma treatments with Karin have changed my life
The Panchakarma treatments with Karin have changed my life. Prior to starting Panchakarma, I experienced significant digestion issues, menstrual pain, trouble sleeping, anaemia, fatigue and emotional blockages. My gynaecologist recommended I undergo laparoscopic surgery and immediately start hormonal treatments to cure my assumed endometriosis. I opted out of the surgery and hormones and decided I wanted to take an Ayurvedic approach to regaining my health through Panchakarma treatments with Karin. The decision was one of the best of my life.
Karin and her therapists were extremely supportive during the treatments. I loved being at the clinic and seeing them daily. Their emotional support was genuine and unmatched by any medical professional I have ever met. The symptoms I faced prior to Panchakarma have miraculously reduced. My friends tell me I look brighter (and I can actually see it in myself). My quality of life on a mental, spiritual and physical level have improved dramatically. Karin is inspiring, genuine, caring, and extremely knowledgeable in her understanding of Ayurveda. Lakshmi Ayurveda has been an absolute blessing to my life. I recommend visiting the clinic to everyone.
With all my Light and Love I thank you,

Testimonial for Panchakarma
As man in late middle age and suffering from the stresses of 21st century living, being overweight, foggy brained, listless and tired with the attendant problems of high blood pressure, high sugar and cholesterol levels, I knew I was in need of a remedy.
As seems to be the case when a need becomes pressing I was offered a possible solution for the alleviation of my ailments. I went for a walk with a friend who told me of this program and that he was seriously considering following it. This intrigued me and after a struggle with my ego who was trying to talk me out of it I made the commitment to undertake the program.
Although I was aware of ayurvedic medicine I had no idea of what its premise was or what it entailed, so I had no preconceived notions or expectations.
The process itself began with a consultation with Karin who was very caring and obviously fully committed to her work. I realised that far from being a simple detoxification program it was specifically tailored to my needs and offered the promise of relief from some chronic issues that were curtailing my life quality.
The first three days were difficult but not as difficult as I imagined and I realised that much of the discomfort was due to the sacrifice of my cherished habits which whilst enjoyable were not exactly healthy, especially the quantities in which they were indulged.
After that the process became more and more enjoyable under the nurturing hands of Karin, Talu and Aki. I especially enjoyed the hot turmeric oil massages and Shirodhara (the pouring of warm oil upon the forehead).
I felt a bit uncomfortable about the enema’s but my concern was unwarranted as the process was painless and not embarrassing.
I have just recently finished the program but can feel that my body is still at work and so I expect that the benefits of the process will continue.
As to the benefits: My blood pressure is significantly lower as are my cholesterol and sugar levels. My skin is clear, my eyes bright and for the first time in years I am not having to get up at night time to go to the bathroom. My lower back pain has disappeared and I am hopeful that my arthritic knee will also improve overtime.
In addition, my mind is clear my mood has improved, I am waking up fresh and I have lost the desire for sweet things.
As a bonus I lost 5kg in two weeks and it is very gratifying to look down and be able to see my feet.
Finally the Panchakarma program supports any psychological or spiritual process one is undertaking as it helps integrate mind and body which is vital for well being and so often overlooked in the fragmentary chaos of wester civilisation.
So if you are looking to improve your health and promote lifestyle change I heartily recommend taking the Panchakarma Program.
Thanks for taking the time to read this missive.
Panchakarma Cleansing From Within
Recently I saw Karin for a Panchakarma Treatment. It was one of the most healing and life changing experiences I have ever had. Karin at all times was very professional and monitored my progress at every stage very carefully.
Before Panchakarma I was toxic due to western life as well as my body being subjected to extensive courses of antibiotics. After Panchakarma I felt lighter emotionally, physically I was 5 kilos lighter and the back problem I have had for many years had disappeared. The wisdom of Ayurveda passed on to me through Karin has given me the tools to live a much healthier richer life.
Thank you so much Karin!

The most caring Panchakarma of my life
“I just had the most caring panchakarma of my life at Lakshmi. Karin was outstanding in the way she would explain all the outcomes possible to every small step of the treatment, making me secure and more interested through the process. My friends have been telling me how glowing I am, and they have no idea how good it feels inside. I feel centred, having the body and mind functioning in their best in years! I left Lakshimi promising myself to do it regularly. So I’ll be back for this encounter to my highest I. Love&Light to all therapist there. Florence”
