MARMA POINT THERAPY

Marma points are located along the meridian pathways where two anatomies meet at a junction, and where two or more chakras intersect. This therapy has the power to balance to your constitution, prevent symptoms of disease, restore youthfulness, detoxify and strengthen the organs, and unblock physical and emotional energy.

It is recommended to strengthen your dosha with Marma Point Therapy four times a year, following the change of each season, when our constitutions are quick to go out of balance.

PRAKRITI CONSTITUTION analysis
This analysis will reveal which elements have primary influence over your body and mind. You are given an information package with guidelines for proper use of massage, nutrition, fasting, cleansing, breathing exercises, meditations, and yoga postures best suited for you. This knowledge is meant for you to gain insights into yourself and align you with your greatest potential for health and well-being.
The physical, psychic, and cosmic language of the body is created from the circadian rhythm of the universe set in motion some billions of years ago when the five great elements were born:
Space, Air, Fire, Water, and Earth,
These were the first materials for life and are the basis of the Vedic / Yogic Sciences.
In the body of all living organisms, the five elements congregate in a certain pattern.
In this unique system of explaining health, air and space- both ethereal elements- form what in Sanskrit is called Vatha. Here, air exercises its power of mobility only when space is available.
The elements fire and water form Pitta. Here, bodily water protects the fire of the body from burning through. An example of bodily fire is the acid in our stomachs, which, if leaked from the stomach, is capable of burning the organism with the force of a raging fire. Water is the buffering force that contains the body's fires.
The elements water and earth congregate to form Kapha. Because of their mutual density, water gives earth its fluidity. Without water, earth would become stagnated and inert.
These combination of elements co-exist in all living organisms. The degree to which each element exists within a person determines the individual’s constitution, known in Sanskrit as your Prakriti, commonly referred to as body type.
In Ayurveda, the individual body type is the primary consideration in diagnosis.
Ayurvedic massage uses medicated oil and unique techniques to correct imbalances in the body/mind complex; to cure orthopedic injuries; relieve swollen tissues; promote regeneration of the tissues and organs, and improve the internal functioning of the body.
Moreover, massage stimulates skin, muscles, veins, arteries, the circulatory system and the nervous system. It improves the skin, strengthens the lungs, intestines and bones, and regulates the digestive system.
