Monday - Friday
Panchakarma is offered in North America at selected Maharishi Ayurveda Health Centers. The Raj at Fairfield, Iowa, and Maharishi Ayurveda Health Center in Lancaster, Massachusetts, offers a full range of programs prescribed by medical doctors and individually tailored to restore balance to the mind and body. In-residence packages are a minimum of three days. A one week package is recommended for first time guests.
The Raj opened its doors in April 1993 and soon gained a reputation as America's premier Ayurveda Health Center. It is the only such facility outside of India specifically built to offer traditional Ayurveda rejuvenation treatments. The French country-style facility encompasses 36,000 square feet and is situated on 100 acres of rolling meadows and woodlands in Iowa's heartland.
At the heart of The Raj programs are the profound treatment programs that help restore balance and reawaken the body’s natural healing mechanisms. But the treatments are only a part of a comprehensive approach to creating health. Guests at The Raj also gain an understanding of how all the various aspects of their lives are interrelated and contribute either positively or negatively to overall well being. Guests learn to understand how individual factors in their make-up affect physical tendencies, moods, cravings, motivation, and behavior. And guests learn how simple shifts in diet, exercise, and daily and seasonal routines can enhance their progress toward increased strength, stability and vitality. Not only do our guests go home feeling renewed in body and spirit, they also report that the benefits from their stay continue to grow long after they have returned home.
The Raj continues to receive guidance from a council of Maharishi Ayurveda experts—Ayurveda experts from India who refer to the original classic texts in verifying every step of every procedure that is then offered to our guests. This maintains the highest level of integrity in all of the treatment programs. The Raj is careful to use the term Maharishi when referring to The Raj Maharishi Ayurveda Health Center, and Maharishi RejuvenationSM Program. People will come to recognize the term Maharishi as an indication of authenticity. Everything we offer has been verified in the classical texts.
