Benefits of Massage and Touch Therapy
Abyangha is an Ayurvedic massage that aids in the removal of toxins from the tissues and helps clear the lymphatic system of waste (suggested when going through any detoxification) and improves immunity. It is also very relaxing, as well as lubricating and cleansing for the skin and deeper tissues.
Marma point massage, a technique similar to acupuncture or acupressure where specific points are deliberately pressed and massaged may also be applied for deeper healing. Massage therapy is a very powerful and effective tool in healing the body and mind of trauma, pain, or stress.
Touch + marma therapy open up neuro pathways and restore intelligence into areas of the body that are either stagnant or compromised so that inner organs, brain, and nervous system are able to function at optimal levels.
*Receptors are molecules most often found on the surface of a cell, they receive chemical signals from the body and respond by doing something. These receptors can become blocked with ama (toxins) and cause dis-ease in the body. Marma points target these receptor sites and they can change the biological functioning of the cells!
