The Maharishi Ayurveda Health Centre in Skelmersdale is situated in a uniquely peaceful and restful environment. Near woodland and meadows, the centre is right next door to Europe's first purpose built facility for practicing the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi Program.


The Maharishi Ayurveda Health Centre in Skelmersdale offers treatments in this settled, harmonious atmosphere, which is regularly remarked upon by our guests. Maharishi Ayurveda (MAV) is a revival of one of the most ancient and complete systems of natural health care. It clarifies the central importance of the mind-body relationship for health and provides us with a wide range of time-honoured practical techniques to enliven powerful natural healing responses in both mind and body.

Many doctors around the world are now convinced of the power of Maharishi Ayurveda, which sees perfect health as man's natural state, and recognizes no limits to the healing potential inherent in the human organism. One of the most important aspects of MAV is the special revitalization therapy, using the techniques traditionally known as Panchakarma.


The treatments offered by this centre are; Abhyanga, Urdvartana, Garshan, Vishesh, Nasya, Shirodhara, Netra Tarpana, Pizzichilli, Swedana, Pinda Swedana and Elimination Therapies (Basti)

And also offer treatment for chronic disorders - rheumatoid arthritis, hypertension, asthma, bronchitis, sinusitis, headaches, eczema, psoriasis, constipation and non-insulin dependent diabetes.

Dr Alex Hankey explains the findings and significance of a breakthrough study on the effects of Maharishi Ayurveda Panchakarma. Dr Robert Herron and Dr John Fagan have shown that Maharishi Ayurveda Panchakarma therapy greatly reduces the levels of 14 important 'lipophilic' (i.e. fat-soluble) toxic and carcinogenic chemicals in the body, which would otherwise remain in the body for a very long time.

Indeed, Herron and Fagan had designed their study knowing that Maharishi Ayurveda Panchakarma therapy includes traditional treatments with the potential to eliminate fat soluble wastes, including carcinogens, and also that no previous study had found reductions in such lipophilic toxins.

Maharishi Ayurveda Physicians are available for consultation at the Maharishi Ayurveda Health Centre, Skelmersdale, UK, and periodically at Maharishi Ayurveda Health Centres and Maharishi Vedic Centres (Transcendental Meditation Centres) around UK and Eire.

My experience of the Maharishi Ayurveda Panchakarma was incredibly inspiring. The benefits have been so significant that they have influenced a change to my lifestyle, diet and how I take care of myself in mind, body and spirit. It is a truly holistic treatment and its effects unfolded both during the treatment and for some time afterwards. The Panchakarma treatments were unique, and were carried out with such care and in a gentle, peaceful atmosphere that I quickly relaxed and was thoroughly immersed in enjoying it all!! I recommend Panchakarma as a true 'spring clean' for your entire being.

I had moderate to severe acne from my teenage years until 1995. I had tried untold number of alternative therapies, until I discovered Maharishi Ayurveda Panchakarma treatments. My first 5 day course of these luxurious, detoxifying therapies led to my acne completely clearing within 2-3 months. It has not recurred since then. I now make sure I have PK treatment once a year to retain my new found glowing skin.
