Our favorite R & R workshop is coming up this Sunday, October 27, 1:00 - 3:30PM.
We'll first move and work to activate our Marma/Acupressure-points. Afterwards we'll go into a few deep relaxing restorative postures to allow special essential oils to affect our senses!
Below are some important facts about Marma Chikitsa:
Marma Chikitsa is one of the most important Ayurvedic treatments. It was originated more than 5,000 years ago. Marma Chikitsa energizes the body, and relieves stress related dis-ease, strengthens the immune system, stimulates the body to heal itself.
Marma Chikitsa works with subtle energy points, or Marmani, similar as Acupressure points. The therapy opens and stimulates the energy-releasing channels in the body, also called Shrotas. When different medicinal oils are applied on the Marmani, it is calming and soothing. Using a Tuning Fork, or massaging with the fingertips or tennis-balls stimulates and vitalizes the body, and can also be a powerful transformation on the mental, emotional, and spiritual level.
According to Science and Ayurveda, everything in the Universe vibrates. All matter is composed of waves that vibrate according to their composition. Sound travels well in water, and because the human body is mainly composed of water, our body is a great conductor of sound. The sound wave created by a tuning fork works like kinetic energy to remove disharmony or tension from the body, and restores wellness.
Because our whole body is a listening device, and sound is well felt through the bones, we’ll use sacrum and manubrium/sternum to feel the vibration. The Aum-Tuning Fork utilizes Marma points, Chakras, and Nadis and vibrates into the entire body.
