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

Santa came early to Buddha's Alchemy. Processing some wonderful medicinal fungi today. The Bear's Head Tooth and Turkey Tail are already dry, and the Ganoderma is beautiful when sliced!

Hericium species are a family of fungi that includes the infamous Lion’s Mane and Bear’s Head Tooth. There are several types that are considered interchangeable both medicinally and culinary wise, and sometimes difficult to differentiate. H. coralloides, H. americanum and H. erinaceus (Lions Mane proper) belong to this family. The most important medicinal applications make use of their anti-tumor/cancer properties (stimulate the immune system to control tumor growth and have tumor suppression factors), and their nerve generating properties (they induce the synthesis of nerve growth factor causing new nerve growth and myelination). In China, they are used to cure gastric ulcers and chronic gastritis.

Trametes versicolor is Turkey Tail, and one of my favorite local harvests. A truly magnificent medicinal fungus that is widely and well studied, and contains PSP and PSK (anti-tumor polysaccharides), improves outcomes in autoimmunity, and prevents antibiotic resistance.

Ganoderma oregonense is part of the famous family to which Reishi mushroom belongs, and grows in the Pacific Northwest. The Ganodermas contain constituents that are anti-tumor, immunomodulating, antiviral and antibiotic, hepatoprotective, and anti-inflammatory. Indeed, Reishi mushroom is considered the premiere longevity tonic amongst Daoist and Buddhist yogis in the East. Ling Zhi, the Chinese name for Reishi, means “spirit plant”, divine or spiritual mushroom, mushroom of immortality, or tree of life mushroom. It is also thought that it may have derived its name from the word Rishi, meaning forest sage, of which the Buddha was considered the ultimate.
