Thai Yoga Massage for health & wellbeing
Marma Therapy is an Ayurvedic form of massage that is a little like Chinese Acupuncture without the needles. Marma points are acupressure points along the body that correlate to either lymph node sites or junctions between nerve pathways or veins & arteries. Specific marma points in the legs, head, face and arms are gently palpated to ease muscle tension, calm the nervous system and relax the body.
Often during a marma treatment, fight and flight mechanisms are switched off sufficiently to allow any hormonal disregulation to ease, promoting a calmer, more relaxed state in mind and body. In many cases, the marma treatment also enables clients to process or express emotions and memories pertaining to their particular situations, calmly and effectively.
In the treatment phase of marma, the client is fully clothed, may be covered with blankets and is given the option of using either the massage couch, or if comfortable, can lie on the floor on yoga mats (at times). Marma therapy may be offered initially on its own in the beginning stages of treatment and laterly incorporated alongside the yoga therapy.
