Once each year the College offers its five-day, 45-hour Panchakarma Specialist training (PKS). This advanced program is only open to students who have completed the Ayurvedic Massage and Body Therapy training program and who are enrolled in, or a graduate of, the Clinical Ayurvedic Specialist 2 internship program. Students learn all about panchakarma and pancha karma clinical management in the C.A.S 1 and C.A.S 2 programs. This special training program is almost entirely hands-on. Students fine-tune their practices of abhyanga (Ayurvedic massage), shirodara, svedana (herbal steam treatment), learn how to perform basti (enema) and nasya treatments and discuss issues related to the daily practice of panchakarma.
Students in the Ayurvedic Health Counselor 1 & 2 programs may register and attend this program at any time. However, certificates of completion are only given to students who have completed their training in C.A.S 2. Clinical case management experience is a requirement for competency. If a student attends this program before completing the C.A.S 2 training, the Panchakarma Specialist certificate will be withheld until all studies are completed.
This program is offered at our Nevada City campus.
