Here at Creative Chakra we offer a full range of Ayurvedic treatments. Ayurveda, means the science of life (Ayur = Life, Veda = Science). This ancient medical philosophy developed thousands of years ago in India. Where it is said the Gods themselves passed the knowledge to humans. Ayurveda maintains health and enables your body to fight illness through therapies, massages, herbal medicines, diet control and exercise. Yoga is an essential part of Ayurvedic practice.
Marmas are the junction points between body, mind, and emotions. Using oils specific to your mind-body constitution, or dosha, this light circular touch stimulates the vital energy points for restoration and rejuvenation, awakening your inner healing system.
Marma is a powerful tool of Ayurveda. Marma means “key point” and refers to the vulnerable spots in our bodies. The application of pressure at these points induces a flow of the vital energy known as “prana” along a complex system called “nadis”. These the pressure points within the body are usually close to the skin surface, where important nerves form junctures with muscles fibers, veins, bones and joints. There are total 108 marma points in the body in which 64 are considered as kulamarma or deadly points which can be used either to heal or to harm the body. The mind is considered as the 108th marma. The other 107 marma points are distributed among muscles, vessels, ligaments, bones and joints and are called Mamsa Marma, Sira Marma, Snayu Marma, Asthi Marma and Sandhi Marma respectively. These marma points are centers of vitality and intelligence. They are fused with life force and and imbued with consciousness. Their healing effect on the body is far reaching because they serve as “portals” to the body’s inherent wisdom and healing energy. The injury to some of these lethal marma points can lead to instant death, so the treatment must be done only by trained Ayurveda professionals.

- Muscular and joint pain
