Marma points are specific anatomical locations in your body through which the energy of these elements is believed to flow.
Marma points therapy is the practice of stimulating these spots through gentle massage therapy. These points are similar to trigger points, and acupressure points used in traditional Chinese Medicine.
Ayurveda is a traditional Indian alternative medicine system that has a long, rich history of use since 5000 years. Under Ayurvedic medicine, marma points are anatomical locations in your body where a concentration of life energy exists. Marma points are said to contain the three doshas:
vata (air and space)
kapha (earth and water)
pitta (fire and water)
These doshas are believed to be linked to your physical and emotional well-being.
Like traditional Chinese acupuncture, Ayurvedic medicine believes that stimulation of the marma points can improve your physical and mental health. It’s said that there are 107 marma points in various locations around the human body.
Ayurvedic medicine proposes marma points therapy as a method of changing or improving your biochemistry.
It’s believed to release stagnant energy and stimulate your internal organs, hormones, and other chemicals to help meet the needs of your body. Marma points therapy is done by gently stimulating the marma points around your body through massage therapy.

What to Expect:
Before your first session, a questionnaire will be sent to you to better understand your needs. Marmaterapy can be an integral part of Yoga Therapy or can be used separately.
I am a Registered Yoga Therapist with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) in the UK.
My aim is to empower you to practice these marma points in your daily life to improve your wellbeing.
At the end of a session you will leave with a carefully written plan of instructions/recordings, so you can practice at your own pace, in your own space.
