Dhanvantari Institute of Panchakarma and Massage was started in 1992 to impart the knowledge of Ayurveda to the common man. In recent times there has been an increasing demand for such type of knowledge both for personal use as well as for professional use. Basic principles of Ayurveda can be applied and used in other fields for better progress. Though India has a number of colleges imparting this knowledge to graduate and undergraduate students there was no solution available to the common man. This included people from all walks of life and especially those for whom there was a direct benefit by integrating Ayurveda in their professional works like beauticians, massage therapists, naturopaths, physiotherapists, etc. Sensing the need for an institute which could offer certificate courses for the same, Vd. Ashok Paranjape established the Institute. We offer following courses.

There is a growing demand for herbal products globally. Many beauticians use such products, but they are unaware of the Ayurvedic herbs behind the herbal preparations. Facts like if the herbs are used fresh then they will show much more results, if they are used on Ayurvedic principles like Prakriti, Dravya-Guna-Karma then they will be more beneficial are often unknown. Also while using herbal face packs if they are used as per Prakriti, while using skin care products if you keep in mind the 7 layers of skin as per Ayurveda then you can show good results in wrinkles, black colorations, roughness, hardness of skin etc. Similarly different hair oils are required for different conditions like thinning of hair, excessive hair fall, rough hair etc. In this course you will learn how to achieve all this without using any artificial products, but only from pure herbs based on Ayurvedic principles.

We eat Indian food and apply diet rules applicable to Europe. In order to avoid such errors we have designed this course especially for housewives and also for people who are responsible for deciding the diet in hospitals, regular dieticians to get a hold of Ayurvedic diet principles and also patients who are on treatment (irrespective of which pathy it is). The properties of various food items available in India will be explained. Ayurveda has given special importance to preparation of food called as “Sanskar”. We can change food properties just by different methods of preparation. For e.g. wheat is hard to digest, a ‘Chapati’ or ‘pancake’ prepared from it will be hard to digest, but if you roast it like popcorn then it becomes easy to digest. This course will contain many such tips as also training in how to prepare a healthy diet depending on season, country etc. based on Ayurvedic principles. Useful for nurses, caterers, dieticians, beauticians, manufactures of food products etc.
