MARMA MASSAGE

ANTI-STRESS THERAPY FOR HEAD AND FACE

15 hour Intensive Training Workshop. Minimum 4 participants.

Running May 2019 - December 2019 

Marma acupressure therapy is a system of 107 prana balancing points that have been used in Ayurvedic healing for more than 5000 years.

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 marma is 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.

 

The word “Marma” comes from the Sanskrit ‘Mru’ which means ‘close to death’. The origins can be found in practice of martial arts in ancient India. The warriors understood the subtle energy and used this knowledge to disable or kill an opponent. The warriors who were hurt using these points for defense were brought to Ayurvedic physicians who’s knowledge of these same points was used for healing. Ancient text ‘Sushuta Samhita’ describes the qualities of marma therapy ‘Marma Chikitsa’ and its use in medicine and surgery. Originally they were mostly used in the practise of martial arts. Nowadays they are widely used for diagnoses and healing of energy imbalances.

Dr. Vasant Lad who brought Ayurveda to the West explains Marma therapy as this: “Like quantum mechanics, Ayurveda holds that a human being is not a solid, stable material structure but an ever-changing, dynamic collection of energy and intelligence in the larger field of energy and intelligence that is the universe. The Marmani serves as the bridge or doorway between the body (sharira), mind (manas) and soul (atman)”.

 

Anti-stress marma therapy is a simple tool to prevent and maintain good health.
