Energy and Healing Techniques
Marma points are an important element of Ayurveda's healing power. Developed in India centuries ago, these energy points profoundly affect the body, mind and spirit and facilitate the deepest levels of healing. Prana is the current of energy that infuses every cell within the body. Stimulating marmani (energy points) directly taps into this reservoir of energy and promotes health.
Chakra Healing and Balancing
In some Indian religions, a chakra (Sanskrit cakra, "wheel") is thought to be an energy point or node in the subtle body. Chakras are believed to be part of the subtle body, not the physical body, and as such, are the meeting points of the subtle (non-physical) energy channels called nadi. Nadi are believed to be channels in the subtle body through which the life force (prana) (non-physical) or vital energy (non-physical) moves. Various scriptural texts and teachings present a different number of chakras. It's believed that there are many chakras in the subtle human body, according to the tantric texts, but there are seven chakras that are considered to be the most important ones. The seven major chakras are Root, Sacral, Solar Plexis, Heart, Throat, Third Eye and Crown. All or some will be opened and healed during the healing session.
Champi is the original Ayurvedic art of Indian head massage. It is a massage treatment focused on the upper back and arms, the shoulders, head, neck and face. Champi is performed while seated comfortably upright in a chair. Its focus on the body areas where stress and tension commonly gather. This is the perfect treatment to release some of the aches and pains in the shoulders, head and neck. The massage focuses on all the areas that classically collect tension in the upper body. It is great for everyone from desk workers to busy moms! Champi is amazingly soothing and nurturing, yet totally invigorating, starting with the back and finishing with a nurturing face massage. The brain is the seat of the nervous system and by massaging the head and neck you are in fact treating the whole body, as the nerves, blood and lymph vessels leave from the base of the neck and travel down the spine to the rest of the body. Champi originated in India more than one thousand years ago and was used as a technique for grooming by women as it helped to strengthen and improve the fullness of the hair. This was achieved by stimulating the pressure points on the scalp and became part of everyday life that was practiced on young and old alike. It became a tradition that was handed down through the generations from mother to daughter. Indian Head Massage is a seated treatment where clients are fully clothed. Deep relaxing moves are employed on the back, shoulders, arms, neck, head and if required, the face leaving you feeling serene, tranquil and refreshed.
