Acupressure Treatment and Marma Therapy

Triggering Energy Shifts with Acupressure Treatment and Marma Therapy

Acupressure treatment and marma therapy are frequently employed during other treatments to maximize the therapeutic effect.

Marma therapy is a form of whole body reflexology that works by triggering what are principally blood gate reflexes, with some influence over nerve gate reflexes as well. Blood gate points or areas are places on the body that trigger internal responses in the circulatory system. Nerve gates in turn affect the nervous system and its workings. Both can be used to stimulate or sedate various body functions in specific areas of the body, or in the surrounding areas of the affected parts. 

Acupressure treatment utilizes principally the chi gate system, or the pathways that the vital life energy, or chi (biomagnetic energy) moves through the body. Acupoints can also overlap blood and nerve reflexive points or areas, making them more effective in healing, restoration and repair. Acupressure is utilized to stimulate the body’s own system of healing, restoration, rebuilding and correction of imbalance. 

Some examples of conditions treated:
  • changes circulation to specific areas and whole body
  • changes nerve feedback to pain stimulation
  • improves digestion and nutrient absorption
  • eliminates toxins from body
  • stimulates changes in endocrine glands
  • offsets imbalanced hormone symptoms
  • calms and sedates nerves
  • changes circulatory fluctuations
  • cools inflammation
  • relaxes muscles and circulatory system
  • clears systemic toxins from body
  • calms down nervous excitement in the brain

Guys, energetics matter. What we see in TCM and other ancient healing traditions is the constant return to energetic patterns. We need to know is it cold, hot, damp, dry, stuck, too much, too little, in the wrong place, superficial, deep. Why? Because knowing the Western diagnosis or condition is not enough for effective treatment. That condition manifests itself uniquely in different individuals depending on their natural constitutions, predispositions, lifestyles, co-existing problems, etc… Remember, these are things that are not usually addressed and included in treatment plans in Western allopathic medicine, and in the one size fits all paradigm of treatment.

Some people who get a cold, flu, and even COVID-19 will have Cold-Damp presentations, others Hot-Damp, Hot-Dry and the list goes on. Therefore it stands that treating them with the same herbs is not logical, and is not going to be effective for everyone (although for a period of time in a crisis pandemic situation like what happened in China, it may be all that can be done). We need to know how to formulate in a balanced way that guides the energetics in the direction we desire to get maximum results.

Don’t get me wrong - there are fantastic contributions and stores of knowledge in medical herbalism. For example, it is very useful to know that a herb holds certain efficacy in treating certain strains of bacteria, viruses, parasites, etc…. BUT, what if testing isn’t available? What if one must wait for test results? Does this mean that we delay treatment? NO! We do what the Chinese have been doing for centuries. We treat the energetic patterns that we see, which has been a very effective way of practicing traditional medicines for thousands of years. We don’t wait to differentiate between the common cold and COVID-19 if symptoms present - we treat. We already have the knowledge to do that, and many Western herbalists are adapting traditional structures like TCM into their ways of working and formulas. Basic energetics are at the core of these traditions, however complex their theories get.
