Hands-On Healing with Marma Chikitsa, Vital Energy Point Therapy
Below is full lecture outline (Friday lectures are just an Introduction)
Marmani are not just anatomical sites on the body but centers for either health or disease to flourish. These vital energy points have many practical functions that affect the mind, body and spirit, including therapeutic applications you can use on yourself and others to relieve pain, stimulate immunity, detoxify, balance emotions, enhance awareness and more.
In this weeklong summer intensive, prepare to engage deeply in both the study and practice of giving and receiving marma treatments. Massage and physical therapists, nurses, and Ayurvedic counselors and practitioners have found great benefit in the study of Marma Chikitsa – as have those who come with an open mind and heart and absolutely no experience in bodywork or healing. Join Vasant Lad, BAM&S, MASc, for one of the Institute’s most popular summer intensives and learn about the physical and spiritual dimensions of 102 different bodily marmani through lecture, demonstration and practicum.
