Ayurveda is considered by many scholars to be the oldest healing science. In Sanskrit, Ayurveda means “The Science of Life.” Ayurvedic knowledge originated in India more than 5,000 years ago and is often called the “Mother of All Healing.” It stems from the ancient Vedic culture and was taught for many thousands of years in an oral tradition from accomplished masters to their disciples. Some of this knowledge was set to print a few thousand years ago, but much of it is inaccessible. The principles of many of the natural healing systems now familiar in the West have their roots in Ayurveda, including Homeopathy and Polarity Therapy.

Marma

Marma Therapy is an Ayurvedic, holistic body treatment using specific medicated oils. It involves light to moderate pressure on the marmas. Marma Therapy brings inner tranquillity, primarily on the level of consciousness, and then on the body and its organs.
Marmas are vital junction points; energy fields on the body where stress tends to accumulate. They are connected through a complex system of innumerable Nadis, subtle sound channels, and together they govern all bodily functions. The silent, subtle touch, sometimes even attention alone, used during Marma Therapy opens the marmas and automatically clears them to allow energy from deep inside to flow more freely, blockages to be removed and balance to be restored.
The way of touch is the secret behind the effect of this Ayurvedic treatment which creates specific, immediate and extraordinary re-balancing effects and gives the ability to re-normalise the functions of physiology.

Shirodhara – Oil Flow

Shirodhara is an ancient Ayurvedic therapy. Warm oil (or other liquid) pours in a continuous stream over the forehead or ‘Ajna marma’(chakra) an area where nerves are highly concentrated. The pressure of the oil onto the forehead creates a vibration. The oil saturates the forehead and scalp and penetrates into the nervous system. Shirodhara cleanses the mind and has a soothing effect on the senses enabling us to let go of negative thoughts and emotions. The gentle pressure and soothing warmth of the oil allow the body, mind and nervous system to experience a deep state of rest, similar to meditation. It initiates a soothing effect on brain cells through the peripheral nerves of the forehead going to the brain with calming and soothing energies which help to reduce stress and help with insomnia. The constant flow of liquid tranquilizes and stabilizes the mind so the mind becomes serene and calmed. It is considered a restorative therapy for all psychosomatic disorders.
Please note: You will need full consultation appointment prior Shirodhara can take place.
