The art of acupressure abides by the theory that there exist special acupoints, or acupressure points, that lie along meridians, or channels, in your body. It is believed that through these invisible channels flows vital energy or a life force called qi (ch'i). It is also believed that these meridians connect specific organs or networks of organs, organizing a system of communication throughout your body. The meridians begin at your fingertips, connect to your brain, and then connect to an organ associated with a certain meridian.
Marma therapy or the science of energy points (includes acupressure) is one of Ayurveda’s most powerful tools for relaxation and rejuvenation. It effectively balances the nervous system, regulates the breath, calms the mind, and harmonizes emotions. Learn self-care rituals for daily rejuvenation as well as acupressure protocols for each body area.
