In Ayurvedic tradition, marma points are anatomical locations around your body where a concentration of life energy exists. Marma points are said to contain the three doshas:
vata (air and space)
kapha (earth and water)
pitta (fire and water)
These doshas are believed to be linked to physical and emotional wellbeing. Like traditional acupressure and Chinese acupuncture, Ayurvedic massage stimulates the marma points and is believed to improve physical and mental wellbeing.

Reiki Therapy is a simple, natural, and safe method of healing and is a form of complementary therapy commonly referred to as energy healing. Practitioners explain that energy can stagnate in the body where there has been physical injury, or emotional pain, and over time these energy blocks can cause illness. Reiki is used to help the flow of energy and remove blocks in a similar way to acupuncture or acupressure. This can enable relaxation, reduce pain, speed healing, and reduce other symptoms of illness. A treatment is often described as a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki is suitable for everyone. It is a complementary therapy and should NOT replace prescribed medical treatments.
