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

Today we began the garden root harvest. There is still more to come, but we have a good start. Angelica, Marshmallow, and Elecampane started the season. I feel some cough medicine in the works!

Elecampane root (Inula helenium) is suited to conditions of Dampness and Phlegm due to its drying and expectorant qualities. It treats respiratory conditions such as coughs , asthma, pleurisy, bronchitis and infections. In addition, it is rejuvenating to the Lung Qi, and hence can be used as a Qi tonic. Elecampane also clears Phlegm from the digestive tract. It is a digestive aid and especially warming to the Spleen when dry fried. It can be used to treat nausea and vomiting, diarrhea, dysentery, cholecystitis, gallstones and intestinal worms. Its anti-parasitic property makes it useful in treating malaria. Elecampane can be used externally to relieve neurogenic pain such as sciatica and rheumatism.

Angelica archangelica root is a warming diaphoretic, and a cousin to Angelica sinensis, the well known Chinese herb called Dang gui. Angelica archangelica is commonly used as an expectorant to treat phlegm in the lungs, and also to release Exterior Wind-Cold and dispel Wind-Damp in colds, asthma, coughs and bronchitis. As it dispels Wind-Damp-Cold, it is also used to treat arthritis and rheumatism. Angelica archangelica moves Blood, and is effective as an emmenagogue. As a carminative and stomachic, it can treat poor digestion. This is a fantastic and versatile garden herb. Processing the roots is an aromatic experience, and will leave your hands smelling wonderful, but sticky from the angelicin (resin).

Marshmallow root (Althaea officinalis) is a well know Western cooling demulcent herb due to its generous mucilage content. Marshmallow can be employed in a variety of conditions. It soothes cough, is anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory, calms fevers, tonifies Yin and clears Heat toxins. Marshmallow also stops bleeding. Marshmallow can be applied to any situation where mucous membranes are dry, inflamed or irritated, including urinary stones, cough/bronchitis/laryngitis, IBS/Chron’s, gangrene, cystitis, and ulcers. It can also be used to tonify Yin in wasting diseases like diabetes, and to stop various kinds of bleeding. The root and leaves may be used, with the root containing the highest amount of mucilage. Mucilage does not tincture well, so direct application or cold infusions are the best choice for medicine.
