Both Marma and Ayurveda treatments works on the principle of balancing the three doshas or bodily energies (namely Vata, Pitta and Kapha) that make up one’s body.
The same steps of:
- Abhyanga (oil massage)
- Swedana (steam therapy)
- Vasti (introduction of medicated liquids into rectum)
- Kati vasti (pouring warm medicated oil to nourish ligaments and tendons relieving pain)
- Snehana (applying hot medicated herbal oil on the back to reduce pain)
- Kizhi (applying heated medicines along with medicated oil tied in cloth)
One main difference between the treatments is that, while ayurveda heals with the intake of herbal medicines, marma does so without any intake of medicine. In marma treatment pressure is exerted on the vital points of the body, increasing blood circulation. These “pressure exertions” result in the flow of energy throughout the body, helping in healing and detoxification.
Marma treatments are usually performed on patients suffering from severe back pain or joint pain.The treatment performed by expert therapist can leave your body more relaxed and fit.
