Founders Lothar Pirc and Karin Pirc, MD, PhD, have achieved remarkable success with the renowned Maharishi Ayurveda Health Centre in Bad Ems, Germany, since its opening nearly two decades ago; and they continue to expand Maharishi Ayurveda health programmes throughout the Western world.
In 1992, the state government of Rheinland-Pfalz asked the couple to open a Maharishi Ayurveda Health Centre in the well-known Spa of Bad Ems, located in the former residential palace of the German Emperor, Kaiser Wilhelm I.
Beginning with only 9 employees, the Center now has a staff of 80. Over 20,000 guests have received treatment at Bad Ems for chronic diseases; and more than 500 journalists have visited the Centre, resulting in 1,200 positive press articles plus hundreds of TV reports.
Bad Ems has received 12 national and international awards, including the most recent which was awarded by a prestigious European guide to centres for relaxation treatment. According to Mr Pirc, 'This guide evaluated 1,400 hotels offering Ayurveda treatments in Europe, and stated that most of these facilities don't deserve to be labeled "Ayurveda". They chose only 20 centres, including Bad Ems, which they considered to have high quality treatments.' He added that the Centre consistently scores at the top level for good therapies, high quality oils, and good medicines.
Also of note, Dr Karin Pirc has been included in the first edition of a Who's Who directory of European women, which features biographical information for 1,800 successful and prominent women of Europe. Dr Pirc is recognized for her 25 years of outstanding work in Maharishi Ayurveda, her leading role in expanding this health care modality throughout the Western world, and her personal contribution to the health of tens of thousands of people.
In June 2010, Lothar and Dr Karin Pirc brought their expertise in management and medicine to the Maharishi Ayurveda Health Center in Lancaster, Massachusetts, USA, which was the first such centre established in the Western world, located in a beautiful area of 250 acres (101 hectares) of forest. Since then the Center in Lancaster has undergone significant renovations and a turnover in staff. Over 500 guests have received treatments for chronic disease since the Pircs' arrival, with outstanding results.
Over the last year Mr Pirc has also traveled throughout the US, Russia, Austria, Mexico, Belgium, and Canada, promoting the benefits of Maharishi Ayurveda in over 20 cities, and encouraging people to visit the centres in Bad Ems and Lancaster. 'This profession has brought me great fulfilment, and I hope to establish centres throughout the world,' commented Mr Pirc.
