In this course, students will discover the power and magic of the ancient Ayurvedic technique called Marma Chikitsa (Acupressure Point Therapy). Marma is a Sanskrit word that translates as vital, hidden or secret. There are 117 marmani (plural) located over the body where arteries, veins, ligaments, tendons, bones and muscles meet. They are imbued with pure consciousness and life force (prana). Each marma has multiple healing actions for body, mind and spirit.
Isvari, with her compassionate and charismatic way of teaching, will cover the basic principles of Ayurveda, introduce the marmani and their functions, discover the relationship of marmani with yoga asanas, aromatherapy, and finish with learning Dr Vasant Lad’s universal Hands on Healing Therapy, that any person can give or receive..... anyone! You are invited to come and say “yes” to the transformational experience this class has to offer. The class is open to one and all. Message therapists, doctors, chiropractors, energy healers, yogis and anyone with a heart-felt desire to help loved ones, will benefit and enjoy learning this simplistic hands on therapy. You will leave feeling inspired and rejuvenated with helpful information that can be implemented into your life. Precious jewels of information and hands on therapy you won’t want to miss.
"My hand is the Lord Boundlessly blissful is my hand This hand holds all healing secrets Which makes whole with it’s gentle touch." Rig Veda
