Pancha Kosha Himalaya Spa at the Dwarika’s
The Pancha Kosha Himalayan Spa at the Dwarika’s offers a range of treatments, drawing from the ancient wisdom of the Vedas, Buddhist medicine and the rare medicinal herbs of the Himalayas. Addressing each Kosha, each therapy and massage has been designed to relax the senses and revive the body.
The spa offers an experience inspired by the ancient traditions of care and respect that has developed in the Himalayan region over several millennia. The name of the spa is derived from the wisdom of the Vedas that claims that our Atman or soul is made up of five layers of being – the physical, the intellectual, emotional and the essence of the absolute. Combined, they offer an authentic experience of life. Thus, any treatment at the Pancha Kosha Spa is a journey into the self.
The Pancha Kosha Himalayan Spa offers a range of indigenous spa treatments. These treatment doesn’t just aim to address the physical wellness of the guests, it also addresses their spiritual wellness. These indigenous spa treatments are as follows:
PANCHA KOSHA SIGNATURE THERAPIES
Pancha Kosha Himalayan Singing Bowl Therapy*:
Experience the healing properties of the singing bowl, an ancient practice unique to the Himalayan region. Singing bowl therapy is believed to be able to remove negative energies, greatly reduce stress and bring our internal organs into proper harmony. This therapy is also effective in activating and balancing the chakras, which, according to Hindu and Buddhist philosophies, are the energy centers of the body. Magnetic resonance imaging (commonly known in modern science as MRI) shows that the organs of the human body each vibrate at specific frequencies when healthy, and disturbed frequencies when sick. The singing bowl is renowned to have the ability to bring these frequencies into balance and thus to restore health. Today singing bowls are used worldwide by health and wellbeing professionals including oncologists, psychotherapists, massage therapists and others. It is used to aid meditation and also for music, both within and outside of spiritual and religious practices.
Duration: 60 minutes.

Nasya therapy helps to correct the disorders of ‘prana’, which can affect the higher cerebral, sensory and motor functions. Gentle massaging of the ‘marma’ (vital energy points) around sinus areas removes the toxins through the nasal passage. This is especially beneficial for anyone suffering from regular headaches, sinus problems or common cold.

A time-honoured intensive treatment highly recommended for relieving the fatigue of the upper or lower back. Kati-Vasti involves the application of dough rings made from gram flour onto the spot of pain or discomfort. Warm oil is poured into the rings, allowing it to permeate the trouble-spot. The deep fomentation of the oil radiates through the muscles, releasing tension and stiffness. This treatment alleviates low backache and spinal disorders. It helps to increase blood circulation, strengthen the muscles and connective tissues, and lubricates the joints to keep them flexible and pain-free.
