WHAT THE THERAPY INVOLVES
Ayurvedic physicians mapped out 108 marma points, each relating to an organ, tissue, emotional state and internal channel. Gently stimulating these points helps to clear stagnation and facilitate physical, mental, emotional healing and vitality. These specific marma points connect to an intricate framework of pathways within the body. This matrix is considered the foundation for acupuncture, acupressure and reflexology.
Marma points are junctures in the body where two or more types of tissue meet, such as muscles, veins, ligaments, bones, joints, nerves and lymph. Blockages can manifest at these junctures a little like a crossroads; these pathways can get congested at these junctions, and pain and weakness can manifest.
The channels are energetically flushed by stimulating these points with a light touch, promoting physical and mental rehabilitation.
Marma treatments help calm a scattered mind and release stagnant emotions, promoting blood circulation and energy flow and helping relieve aches and pains in the body.
