MARMA CHIKITSA - MARMA POINTS THERAPY:
Duration- Approx. 60 min - 600,000 VND
An ancient technique of healing from Vedic traditions, Marma Therapy is a very gentle form of bodywork that enhances the free flow of prana (life force) by releasing these blocks and revitalizes the entire system. Marmas are the forerunners of acupressure and acupuncture, coming from ancient Vedic traditions.
The marma points links to the subtle channels called Nadis (similar to meridians in the Chinese system of medicine). Just as in the physical body the passageways become blocked by toxins, so too the tiniest of mental stresses will cloud or obstruct these subtle points, reducing the flow of energy. These blocks that are formed in the energy channels of the body due to emotions and subtle feelings are the cause of many diseases.
Marma Therapy is a technique in which simple touch or light massage on the vital points of the body -the Marma points, are used to balance the life force (prana). Gentle pressure on the marmas releases the blocks and allows prana or life energy to flow to the connecting organs or tissues giving them a new lease of life. It opens up the energy channels, increases energy and enhances vitality. It releases stress and disease-reversing towards good health and is highly beneficial in the healthy to re-energize and provide a proper flow of energy within the body.
There are 107 main energy points on the surface of the body. Each relates to a different organ or tissue. By gently pressing or massaging these sites prana is stimulated, clearing stress and blocks in the body.
Marma Therapy is potentially the most restorative of the Ayurvedic treatments as it harmonizes the body’s built-in energy network which transcends to the physical and mental levels, thereby rectifying the defective energy channels in a subtle way.
