And, in the world, the organization Shodh Prashikshan Evam Upchar Sansthan Allahabad it has 20 years working the Ayurvedic Acupressure. There are many branches of acupressure and acupuncture as we know it today. They are the Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurvedic Acupressure, Sujok, and Reflexology. But, these are just some of the types. Because the philosophy and theories of each are a bit different.
The Subtle body describe a subtle physiology having a number of focal points connected by a series of channels. This kind of medical treatment is also known as Marma Therapy and involves the 10 elements, physical and metaphysical. So, Ayurvedic Acupressure is the energy pathways for healing body, mind, and consciousness with knowledge of Ayurveda. And, a 3,000 years old Vedic text, the Suchi Veda, incorporates for the first time the Ayurvedic Acupuncture as another Ayurvedic system. But, it has been practiced as an accessory therapy since it was used in conjunction with other forms to effect healing. And the instruments for applying pressure on the reflex zones of the body are various. As the acuball, the energy roller, foot roller or krupa chakra, power mat, spine roller and the Teishein.
The Marma points are an important element of Ayurveda’s healing power. So, the studies of this points come from India centuries ago. And these energy points affect the body, mind, and spirit and ease the deepest levels of healing. Besides, by receiving the name of energy points, these pressure points help in stimulating not only circulation but also improve the mental and emotional outlook. Throughout the body are all the Marma points. The Prana is the current of energy that infuses every cell within the body. The Ayurvedic Acupressure stimulates marmani or energy points directly taps into this reservoir of energy and promotes health. This work is the first of its kind to present all 117 marmani according to their individual energetics and to compare them with the Chinese system of acupuncture points. Hence, the marma therapy integrates vital knowledge of the energy points with specific techniques of Ayurvedic massage. And this vital knowledge of the points reveals how to do detoxification, acupressure, aromatherapy, yoga practices, meditation and more.
Pitta and Kapha, the doshas.
These doshas support the meridians or marma points.
But, the therapy restore the imbalance of the ten elements in the human body with the aid of an entirely newly created set of meridians and their points. So, the ten elements are represented on the ten fingers of the two hands and similarly on the ten toes of the two feet.
Hence, Ayurvedic acupressure talks about 10 elements:
• 5 physical elements: Space, Air, Fire, Water, and Earth.
• 5 metaphysical elements: Time, Direction, Mind, Soul and Tam (Origin).
So, there are thirty basic ayurvedic meridians on each finger and toe including thumb and big toe. That makes it 300 basic meridians on the two hands and 300 basic meridians on the two feet, a total of 600 basic meridians. And, each meridian has ten points corresponding to the ten elements, thus giving us 6000 points. Also, the combination of various basic Marma Points develops many secondary meridians. That give us more meridians and points running into thousands. In the Ayurvedic Acupressure, we can see that the treatment is done with the help of 14 main meridians only. Hence, the therapy is quite simple and its intricacies can be picked up in a few months as opposed to many years that it takes to get knowledge of allopathic or other alternate medicines.
The therapy is effective, and without side effects, has the potential to revolutionize medical treatment around the world. The organization Sansthan spreads the awareness of this therapy. And thanks to this, has extended and its reach to all parts of India and rest of the world for the good of the suffering humanity.
