According to legend, he transmitted the science of Ayurveda to the suffering and disease-stricken humanity. Our deep respect for the incomparable healing art of physical and mental suffering makes us carry this name with reverence and respect and pass it on to you. We specialise in holistic back treatments, Ayurveda terapies and Panchakarma-detoxing and implement an integrated healing approach to offer you an extensive range of holistic healing. In combination with an aligned diet and your stay at Villa Dhanvantari you can achieve best healing results. In the further course you can find information about our treatments and our treatment philosophy. Why Ayurveda at Villa Dhanvantari? What is special about our treatment philosophy? Following the teachings of Ayurveda our natural state of our body is characterized by health, happiness and inner well-being. However, the pace of life, a high degree of required adaptability and flexibility, stress and tension, difficult environmental conditions, improper food, negative emotions and thoughts can profoundly affect our bodies and pollute them. The understanding of these material immanent conditions constitute our base therapeutic option and we see our comprehensive therapies as profound as sustainable way to bring your body and mind back into balance. In our villa Dhanvantari, far from noise and vibrant life, we realize a new and integrated healing approach and combine Ayurveda with the correction of the spine, the more to achieve a lasting recovery. The unique treatment technique of Petra Dürr (PD method) for sustainable correction of skeletal disorders is applied in the first step. Based on a corrected skeleton, the function of the central nervous system, blood circulation and supply of tissues and organs improves rapidly and sustainably. Then, all other applications – primarily Ayurveda therapies – need less time to take effect. Chronic pain disappears and the body’s own healing powers put back on. After an initial diagnosis, we set-up your personalized treatment plan to best monitor your recovery progress and thereby enable you to both heal and relax on the physical as well as on the spiritual level. Back treatment Petra Dürr is a specialist in the correction of spinal and back problems, Ayurveda therapist, alternative practitioner, energy healer and massage therapist. In the course of 25 years of experience in treating people, she has developed her own method and now integrates in her work two outstanding healing methods. Firstly, the Ayurveda Panchakarma therapies, which provide a gentle but highly effective way of body cleansing and secondly her own PD technique for correction of the skeletal system. The PD method leads to improved functioning of the central nervous system, tissue perfusion and thus restore a functioning organ system. The treatment is a combination of holistic osteopathy, kinesiology, cupping glasses, inner vision and energy work. Through kinesiology, the body actively sends information in what areas of the body defects must be treated to achieve a cure. By the rapid, selective pressure pulses of the thumb, which are received through the nervous system, the body is able to move to position the individual vertebra bone, and the surrounding structure properly. With each treatment, your posture and organ function and tissue perfusion improves and Ayurveda treatments work in an optimal way. All different kind of back problems can be treated, even birth problems and chronic diseases have been corrected successfully. Panchakarma-Detoxhealing: Ayurveda therapy Panchakarma means a part of the cleansing of Ayurveda, the traditional Indian art of healing and at the same time the oldest and most complete medical system in the world. This unique form of therapy stands for natural and holistic restoration of your natural state of health and well-being by cleansing your body of toxins as well as purification, balancing, healing, rejuvenation, decreasing stress, improving bodily functions and supporting balance of your system in a natural way. It can be likened to a complete system reboot by making positive changes in lifestyle. The therapeutic procedure appears to be relatively simple, but the results are effective, powerful and sustainable. The comprehensive treatment always begins with the diagnosis and examination of the ayurvedic doctor resp. ayurvedic health consultant, followed by an individual treatment plan. Basically it can be said that a longer cure also is associated with better results. The therapy can come along with ayurvedic food or macrobiotic diet. Macrobiotic is deemed to be the mildest form of nutrition and helps to cleanse and heal the organism gently and is especially suitable to medicate diabetes or cancer. In combination with Panchakarma diseases like rheumatism, asthma, hypertension or sick headache can be treated effectively.
