The word ‘yoga’ literally means ‘fusion’
A union of the Atman or soul and Paramathman, the God which helps a human attain Moksha or liberation, the ultimate goal of life. Yoga is a fusion of body and mind through which the Athman embarks on a journey to achieve the salvation of heart & body, mind & soul.
The eight-fold yogic path to salvation:
Today, modern yogic practices are more about ‘Hath Yoga’ or the postures. The rest, which makes one an original Yogi, the master of Yoga, are neglected as a compromise with modern times.

Naturopathy treatment is based on the universal fact that various functions of our body are guided by five primary forces of nature. They are: Jal or water, Vayu or air, Agni or fire, Akash or sky and Prithvi or earth. The ailments occur due to imbalance of these natural forces in our body. Naturopathic cures restore the balance of these natural forces and are seen as facilitators which help our body heal itself through the powers of nature. The system of Naturopathy is guided by certain principles such as:
The available modalities of Naturopathy in Purnagram are-
It’s an alternative therapy whereby manual pressure is applied to stimulate lines of energy on specific points of the body.
Specific points along the lines of energy (meridians) are activated by inserting fine needles. This system of complimentary therapy is used for the treatment of various physical and mental conditions.
Acupuncture is an oriental science and our experts are well-versed with the conditions requiring use of this therapy. A consultation with them will clear any apprehensions you may have regarding the perceived pain.
Physical therapy or Physiotherapy treats people affected by injury, illness, and disability. Physiotherapy, when combined with Ayurveda is ideal for recovery from post-accident & sport injury and profession as well as age related disabilities. It is a ‘call-back to action’ through examination, diagnosis, prognosis and physical intervention, restoring physical functions, particularly mobility. Thus improving a person’s quality of life.
The ‘Namami Rehabilitation Program’ is a highly effective fusion of Ayurveda, Naturopathy, and Pain Management Techniques /Physiotherapy modalities.

Cold therapy is highly effective for relieving pains and swellings, especially in acute and abrupt injuries. Unlike applying justice as is the usual practice; Cold Therapy includes a deep kneading massage (DKM) over and above ice pack application and ice massage.
Application of heat to enhance blood flow of a limb, especially at the site of injury, speeds-up healing. It also helps softens tight tissues relieving pain.
Electrical stimulation is used to prevent wasting of idle muscles (atrophy) in people suffering from paralysis. This stimulation also helps regain some degree of muscle strength after procedures like knee surgery. Muscles are shortened through electrical stimulation via electrodes placed strategically on the surface of the skin.
Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS)is an electrical stimulation by low currents transmitted through the electrodes placed on the skin surface using small battery-powered devices. Unlike normal electrical stimulation TENS does not result in muscle contraction and hence is ideal for temporary relief from pain.
Range of motion exercises are often prescribed to increase or maintain flexibility of your joints and to reduce stiffness. There several types of range of motion exercises often prescribed including the following
Certain conditions weaken the muscles taking ‘action’ out of life. In such cases strengthening exercises form an important part of a physiotherapy rehab. Preparing a person to return to original performance levels or highest physical function potential.
Mobilization of soft tissues through therapeutic massage is an integral a part of physiotherapy treatment. It relaxes the tight muscles, thus relieving pain and reducing swellings.

According to the tenet of karma, very event that occurs will be followed by another. The existence of the first event and its energy causes recurrence. Whether this second event will be pleasant or unpleasant to others and oneself is determined by beneficial or harmful effects of the first. According to the theory of Karma, a beneficial event is energized by the wish for benefiting others. While a harmful event happens due to greed, conflict or delusions. Any event is not good by itself. It turns out to be so by the virtue of the energy of mental thoughts that accompany its cause.
Thus, the law of karma teaches us that a person who commits harmful acts is responsible for them and begets the results thereof. Thus every action of yours results in what happens to you later. Or it’s your thoughts and actions, which are responsible for what happens to you, good and bad. You have to pay for your karma; there is no escape from it.
