I had an excellent experience at SoHum. Most importantly, I feel that I made significant progress healing my health issues. The after visit support is also excellent and I greatly enjoyed the healing and educational programs that were offered. I highly recommend SoHum!

By Amy W. /

A warm, dedicated attitude with great attention to my every need exuded from everyone on the SoHum Team. It is thanks to this synergy of support that my stay at SoHum Mountain Healing Resort allowed me to relax deeply and to reap optimal benefits from the healing Panchakarma treatments, diet and overall support so generously offered.

By Emilia H. /

I had an incredible journey at SoHum. Every aspect of the Panchakarma program was fine tuned. All the guidance, education, as well as every therapist, practitioner, chef, front desk personnel, and housekeeping staff member were stellar. I felt so supported and genuinely cared for. Not to mention the property and grounds are upscale and serene!

SoHum Mountain Healing Serenity Retreat

Immerse yourself in the world of Ayurveda and healing touch with our 3 or 4-night Serenity Retreats. You can couple these retreats with in-person consultations for Ayurveda, yoga and breathwork, and more to personalize your journey with us.

Leave each session with your heart open, with tools to live holistically and with ancient wisdom, and with inspiration to be the best version of yourself. Included are AyurPrana's signature Home Cleanses!

Frequently Asked Questions

 With Panchakarma you can benefit in the following ways: 

  • Eliminate toxins and toxic conditions from your body and mind 
  • Restore your constitutional balance by improving health and wellness 
  • Strengthen your immune system 
  • Reverse the negative effects of stress on your body and mind 
  • Slow the aging process 
  • Enhance your self-reliance, strength, energy, vitality and mental clarity 
  • Bring about deep relaxation and a sense of well-being 
  • Implement positive lifestyle changes

Our Panchakarma program starts at 7-nights and 6-days of treatment (there is no treatment the day or arrival and the day of departure), having said that, it is not uncommon for people to do 2 and even 3 weeks of Panchkarma in a row. Also, please note that our program starts 2 weeks prior to your arrival with 3 zoom calls, and ends with one last zoom call a week after you have left to help support you with your integration.

Arrival – Sunday between 4-5pm. No later than 5pm. Departure following Sunday before 11:00 am.

The closest airport is the Asheville Regional Airport which is only a 43 minute – 23 mile drive through the beautiful town of Asheville and the Blue Ridge Mountains and we recommend that you take an Uber from the Airport to SoHum. Alternatively you can use https://avlhopper.com/

We accept a 50% deposit at the time of reservation, and the remaining balance would be charged after your Design Call (two weeks prior to your arrival) along with your accepted additional treatments. There are no refunds after this time.

Our cancellation policy for our Panchakarma Retreat is:

  • If canceled before 90 days of arrival: full refund of deposit
  • If canceled 45-90 days prior to arrival date: 50% refund of deposit
  • If canceled Within 45 days of arrival date: No refund of deposit
  • 30 days written notice for postponing to another day

It is not infrequent that people have their menses during panchakarma even if it isn’t their normal cycle time because Panchakarma supports a strong cleansing process. In situations like this, the Panchakarma will continue as normal with the exception of postponing specific therapies, namely the purgation and basti’s. Those two are postponed until the flow lightens (generally 3-4 days). Part of the post-panchakarma process is often to continue the basti’s at home once a week for four weeks and so it is not uncommon that participants who need to postpone their enemas just continue at home. All supplies needed to do so are easy to provide from the center prior to your departure.

You sure can. Please feel free to download our Spa Menu

Tipping is optional and it is typically between 15% and 20%. If you want to leave cash we will give you envelopes and you can leave the tips at the front desk. The front desk then will put it in the safe and distribute it to the team members. If you want to put the tip on your folio to be charged to the Credit Card on file, we have a list of the therapist and a section for “other” that you can write in the name. Then the team will distribute based on how much you wish to leave.
