Ayurveda Cure: Regeneration of Body and Soul


A warm welcome to the Maharishi Ayurveda Private Clinic Bad Ems!

Offering you authentic Ayurveda at its best

Well begun – comprehensive diagnosis by an Ayurveda physician

Ayurveda, the natural healthcare system used in ancient India, offers effective strategies for holistic health. Its main emphasis is on prevention of disease; cure is only secondary. Through special examination methods like the traditional pulse diagnosis the Ayurvedic physician detects disease at such an early stage that it can be corrected before any symptoms manifest. Therefore every Ayurveda therapy starts with a comprehensive examination, including pulse diagnosis, personal medical history (anamnesis), in-depth analysis of the factors that have caused the condition according to Ayurveda, and assessment of the individual Dosha–Type .

The Ayurveda therapy – detoxification in silence

For any health disturbances, Ayurveda provides very effective therapies – first and foremost the program called Panchakarma, which is our specialty. This classical Ayurveda course of treatment uses a specific sequence of steps/phases to dissolve and eliminate the metabolism’s waste products and environmental toxins which are insoluble in water and therefore out of reach for common cleansing therapies. Full-body oil massages given by two therapists working in silent synchrony will activate your body’s self-healing power and bring peace to your mind.

An Ayurvedic course of treatment offers many benefits, also if you don’t have any specific health complaints: enjoy relaxing treatments, experience deep rest and recreation, and take home a long-lasting feeling of increased energy and better health.

Chronic illnesses – mitigation and relief through Ayurveda

Panchakarma can bring critical alleviation for many conditions, especially chronic illnesses, such as hypertension, sleep disorders, headaches, burnout, liver affections, overweight or underweight, osteoarthritis, rheumatism, allergies, dermatitis, and many others.

Decades of experience with Ayurveda – happy guests

Our physicians Dr. Karin Pirc (medical director), Dr. Nazanin Norouzifar, and Vaidya Prathmesh Vyas each have decades of experience with Ayurveda. They know how important it is to attend to individual needs. Since the Private Clinic was established in 1992 more than 20,000 guest have come to trust them—an acknowledgement we are proud to accept and share with our ninety dedicated members of staff.
Our house is officially recognized as a Private Clinic (§30 GewO).
We look forward to welcoming you in Bad Ems very soon!
