Cardy Net House, Fife Panchakarma team

The Skelmersdale-based Maharishi AyurVeda Health Centre is to expand its operations nationwide by running a series of ‘pop-up clinics,’ following the success of a pilot event in Fife, Scotland.

For a week in May, sixteen guests enjoyed the Maharishi AyurVeda purification therapy, known as Panchakarma, at luxurious Cardy Net House, in a beautiful coastal location.

Panchakarma systematically combines a variety of Ayurvedic treatments that help eliminate toxins and harmful substances from the body. These toxins have accumulated as a result of improper food, lifestyle, environmental toxins and stress.

A team of six therapists, four from the UK and two from Europe, staffed the event, along with Maharishi AyurVeda expert Dr Donn Brennan.

Organiser and host of the event, Sharon Wilson Hodgson, was delighted to welcome the team to Scotland for the first time. “This was an extremely worthwhile venture enjoyed by all participants,” she says.

The future direction of clinical treatments is going to be more regionalised, according to Maharishi AyurVeda UK Managing Director, Chris Davies. “We are planning pop-up clinics in North Yorkshire, and near Cardiff; and also another clinic at Cardy Net House in October,” he says.
