Initial Consultation

An initial Ayurvedic consultation provides an in depth analysis of our own unique makeup and provides an understanding of causative factors that may be present if an illness is present. Specific guidance in the form of lifestyle and dietary advice, complete with recipes. Herbal care, bodywork and detoxification therapies may also be recommended.

Dravyaguna - Ayurvedic Pharmacology

In Ayurveda medicine has used many herbs such as turmeric possibly as early as 1900 B.C. Many other herbs and minerals used in Ayurveda were later described by ancient Indian herbalists such as Charaka and Sushruta during the 1st millennium BC. The Sushruta Samhita attributed to Sushruta in the 6th century BC describes 700 medicinal plants, 64 preparations from mineral sources, and 57 preparations based on animal sources.

If applicable, an Ayurvedic Practitioner or Physician establishes individualized herbal recommendations based on findings in the consultation.

Marma Therapy

Marma Chikitsa is an important aspect of  Ayurvedic  treatment  where the stimmulation on so called Marma points induces the flow of vital energy (prana) along a complex system of subtle channels called nadis. 

 

Marma in Sanskrit means hidden or secret. By definition, a Marma point is a junction on body where two or more types of tissue meet, such as muscles, veins, ligaments, bones or joints.From common ailments to serious neuromuscular diseases, all can be treated by Marma therapy. Common ailments like headache, bodyache, faulty spinal alignment, pain in the joints can be rejuvenated through Marma Chikitsa. 

Sushruta Samhita describes 107 Marma points in body. Major marma points correspond to the seven Chakras, or energy centers of the body, while minor points radiate out along the trunk and limbs. The points cover both the front and back of the body including the head and neck. (The mind is considered the 108th Marma.) Each has its own name based on their anatomical position.

 

The human body, needs shodhana (revitalisation) in order to perform its function normally and efficiently. In Ayurvedic system, especially in kerala, Marma massage is performed as a routine in preventive medicine. A professional therapist isolates Marma points and tone them  by increasing   blood flow to   affected part of the neuro-muscular junction. They also aim to tone the surrounding muscles.

Marma therapy focuses on energizing the body to relieve occupational illness and stress related disease.

  2. Asthi Marma  (Bones) 8 Points

  3. Snayu Marma (Tendons & Ligamants) 27 Points

Testimonials

 

"Marion is an excellent Ayurvedic practitioner. I went to her for a consultation on my body's inflammation and exhaustion after exhausting all other avenues. I am already on quite a few medications due to a couple of illnesses. We went over my illnesses, diet, my lifestyle and exercise routines. Marion recommended herbs and dietetic changes that would help with the inflammation and constant exhaustion, and WOW! what a difference. My constant exhaustion is gone. My swollen and painful joints are no longer inflamed. I am able to workout and not suffer of pain afterwards. Thank you Marion. Your advice has made my life so much better."
