What is Marma Therapy?

For thousands of years, Ayurvedic practitioners have used Marma points to stimulate the natural self-healing potential of the physical body.

These specific anatomical points, found at certain junction areas in the body, are believed to be the basis of later acupuncture and massage therapy practices that now span many cultures across the globe.

By gently directing our attention and touch toward these vital energy points, we can use this physical map to support radical healing on an alchemical, biological level within our own bodies, as well as those of our clients, patients, and community.

Session 2 (second of 3 sessions) - Focus: Torso, Back, Upper & Lower Extremities

After your introduction to the Marma points in the head, face, and neck, Vasant Lad and Sneha Raichada, with a team of experienced practitioners in support, will explore the Marma points of the torso, back, upper and lower extremities -  building on Session 1 and completing the marma points of the body.

The team will leverage what we covered in the first marma immersions - diving into the practical application of Marma point body therapy and how these vital centers interact with the organs, play a role in disease, and learn to use Marma to clear the pranic pathways of the body.

Testimonials

I learned of AyurPrana while attending a webinar this summer with Vasant Lad. The organization has been set up to help spread the education of Ayurveda, facilitate online consultations and to provide accessible webinars to those seeking more knowledge about Ayurveda. It could not come at a more optimal time. My experience has been seamless with all interactions of the organization. What a blessing to be able to access direct learning with the legendary Vaidya Vasant Lad. Thank you Vasant Lad and AyurPrana for your selfless service. -Nancy
