At Sunshine Ayurveda, marma massage therapy is performed by an Ayurveda doctor or one of our experienced therapists.
The treatment involves an ayurvedic therapeutic oil massage (Abhyanga) all over your body using a warm herbal oil suited to your dosha constitution (Vata/Pitta/Kapha) and your health needs.
While massaging, our therapist will focus on energy points to stimulate blood flow and tone up the surrounding muscle at the neuro-muscular junctions. Using the palms, fingers, thumbs and heel, unique strokes and pressure are applied at different points.
The therapist may also use Kansa wands to stimulate certain marma during the session, and/or sound healing using a singing bowl. The vibrations of the singing bowl have a profound healing effect as each bowl is tuned to the frequency of a specific energy centre (chakra) in the body.
Your marma massage session will be followed by a herbal steam bath therapy (Swedana).
