56. Acupressure Treatment

All necessary nutrients, minerals, proteins, and oxygen are transported inside our body by blood. If the supply of blood gets restricted due to any reason, the area where the supply is not complete goes into a tantrum; and we need to ensure that the tantrum is removed from one’s body for the supply to be corrected. Acupressure balances the body’s motivating energy (Qi). As we mature, the quantity of Qi and blood in the skin and underlying facial muscles slowly begin to decrease, causing a loss of nourishment, support, and moisture. The face has a high number of acupressure points, specific areas of the face that can be targeted and treated.

57. Marma - Ancient Indian Art of Treatment

This is an ancient form of Ayurvedic Massage initially developed and used by Martial Arts Practitioners. There are 107 reflex points around the body where flesh, veins, arteries, tendons, bones and joints meet up. Each of these points have their own intelligence and consciousness, which co-ordinate with the mind and body and this helps to re-educate the brain in control and co- ordination of muscles and nerves after illness or injury. The therapy involves stimulation using the fingers of these Marma (trigger) points, which promotes physical and mental rehabilitation. The Marma Therapeutic treatments isolates points and cleans them out by increasing blood flow to the affected part of the neuro-muscular junction. Stretching of muscles and tendons is also used to improve tone, and gentle manipulation of the spine. Marma Therapeutic Massage has wide applications.
