Panchakarma therapy is the core of Ayurveda’s healing therapies. The term Panchakarma refers to the five principal practices used to cleanse the body of its excess bodily humors, called doshas. The main treatments are administered in a sequence : Vamana- Emesis, Virechana- Purgation, Anuvasan Basti- Unctous Enema, Niruha Basti- Medicated decoction Enema and Nasya- Nasal insufflation. Sushruta has considered Raktamokshana- Blood letting  as one of the Panchakarma. The timing and number of applications vary, depending on the specific condition of the individual.
The process of eliminating excess doshas  is a systematic act of cajoling, tempering, shocking and nurturing the body. The excess doshas are never forcibly removed from the body. In classical practice, an intricate weave of knowledge of the seasonal effects on the tissues, the precise time of the doshas advances (prakopa), the overall condition of the person all contribute to the timing and nature of the applied Panchakarma.  Panchakarma benefits both the healthy and unhealthy and is considered to be the most effective therapy for preventing and curing diseases, as well as for revitalizing the entire human organism.
The Panchakarma therapy practice involves three distinct phases – preparation (purvakarma), main action (pradhan karma) and post procedure (paschat karma) to sustain the effects of the therapy.
