MARMA IMMERSION SERIES
Vasant Lad, BAMS & MASc
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. Marma points are used by Ayurvedic doctors and practitioners to stimulate the natural self-healing potential of the physical body.
In this set of 3 immersions you will be introduced to the system of Marmani - how each point is related to the rest of the body - while learning practical techniques in working with these points.
These immersions can be enjoyed individually, but have been curated as a set and are recommended as a group for those who wish to study the entire Marma system under world-renowned Ayurvedic practitioners and teachers!
LEARN TOGETHER: LIVE CALLS AND COMMUNITY FORUM
There will be a private Facebook group per immersion where you can join discussions, post questions, and get to know your instructors and fellow students a little better!

CASE STUDIES & PATHOLOGY
In this final instalment of our marma immersions, Vasant Lad and Sneha Raichada will look at particular case studies and pathologies - how they present in our body, or the body of our patient/client, and how marma point therapy can be employed to help alleviate these ailments and improve health in certain organs and tissues.
This immersion will also provide an understanding of how Marma therapy can address certain pathologies and recurring issues within the physical body.
