This energy is channelized into cells and utilized by them. A unique aspect of Kaya Chikitsa is Kaya Kalpa. Kaya Kalpa refers to the renewal and rejuvenation of the body. It sustains the youthfulness of the body and slows down the effects of ageing through application of physical and psychological methods to the body once it has been detoxified through panchyakarma.
