Ayurvedic reflexology combines the reflexology practice developed by Eunice Ingham in early 1950 with traditional Ayurvedic medicine. First developed in 2000 by Australian therapist and educator Dr. Robert Svoboda, student of Ayurveda practitioner Sharon Stathis, it is an art and a science that deals with the principle of reflex areas on the feet and hands which correspond to all of the glands, organs and parts of the body.
Foot reflexology is an acupressure method that works on specific nerve endings on your feet that are directly related to all the organs, glands and other parts of the body. The pressure is slow and gradually deep.
Ayurvedic Foot Reflexology is not just a foot massage. It is a therapeutic treatment that brings physical and mental changes in the people suffering from various health issues. Reflexology stimulates the flow of oxygen/prana into the areas with a blockage or a stagnant energy, it helps to improve blood circulation an remove any deposit of uric acid from the body. Kansa Vatki ayurvedic foot massage uses a three-metal bowl and a specific oil or a triphala ghee to rub into your feet. The metal reacts with the skin, removes inflammation and draws the toxins out of the body. Marma energy points stimulation at the end of the session helps to release stagnant negative emotions, decreases stress and tension, calms down the mind and emotions. In Ayurveda, it is believed that mind and eyes have a great relationship with feet, and its massage increases calmness of mind and improves eyesight.

Marma acupressure therapy is a system of working with 107 prana balancing points that have been used in Ayurvedic healing for more than 5000 years. 5 of the marma points are located on each foot and hand. A simple definition of marma is a connection point where physical meets the spiritual (prana or breath, vital life force, psychic energy). Prana is the vibrant electromagnetic energy of nature that moves through channels called nadis or meridians. Marma points are the doorways to the 7 Chakras/energy centres. Physically, a marma point is a junction on the body where two or more types of tissue meet, such as bones/asthi, muscles/mamsa, ligaments/snayu, joints/sandhi and veins/sira.
If the marmas functioning normally prana can move freely. If the marma is not functioning properly flow of prana is limited or can be completely stagnant, that leads to various health issues or mental discomfort. It is recommended to stimulate marma points regularly for maintaining the optimal health and well being.
