MARMA CHIKITSA (Marma Point Therapy)
Soothing & Calming (like Reiki), Healing & Whole Body focussed (like Accupressure & Reflexology) this healing therapy is based on the knowledge of Marma points, or vital points of the body where structures pulsate and pain exists, and exits.
In ancient Vedic times, Marma points were called “bindu” – a secret dot or mystic point. Like a door or pathway, by activating a Marma point the body’s inner pharmacy is opened. The body is a silent universal biochemical laboratory – operating every moment to interpret and transform arising events.
” Stimulation of these inner pharmacy pathways signal the body to produce exactly what it needs, including hormones and neurochemicals that heal the body, mind and consciousness. This deep dimension of Marma Therapy has the potential to unfold spiritual healing.” ~Dr. Vasant LadA Marma point is a juncture on the body where 2 or more types of tissue meet, such as muscles, veins, ligaments, bones or joints. Resembling acupuncture points but extending to larger areas of the body. Yet much more than a casual connection of tissue and fluids they are intersections of vital force and prana, or breath.Marma points bridge the gap between the physical and energetic bodies by carrying energetic information between the mind and the body’s organs and tissues.
