Dr. Vasant Lad BAM&S, MAScJune 22nd, 2012
Below is full lecture outline (Friday lectures are just an Introduction)
A marma is a vital energy point accessed on the skin's surface, serving as a bridge between body, mind, and spirit. Touching a marma point changes the body's biochemistry and can unfold radical, alchemical changes in one's makeup. Stimulation of these inner pharmacy pathways signals the body to produce exactly what it needs, including hormones and neurochemicals that heal. Marma is both a diagnostic tool and a simple therapeutic measure to balance the doshas and promote health and well being.
Through lecture and practice, Vasant Lad, BAM& S, MASc, Ayurvedic Physician, will teach the theory and methodology of affecting marma points through the use of oils, touch, gemstones, and color to bring the doshas, tissues, and channels back into balance.
