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

My favorite time of year again - wild rose harvest. Rose is considered an astringent herb.

Rosa spp. (hips/fruit/flower) – Rose

TCM: Jing Ying Zi (hips); Ayurveda: Gulab, Shatapatri

Rose hips are neutral to cool, drying, astringent, and sour in TCM, and bitter, astringent, pungent, and sweet in Ayurveda. In TCM, they affect the Kidneys, Bladder and Large Intestine. In Ayurveda, rose petals and hips are used, and they are considered balancing to the 3 doshas, but are especially effective at reducing Pitta. They affect the plasma, marrow, blood, nerve and reproductive dhatus.

Properties of Rosa spp. flowers are anti-bacterial, antidepressant, anti-inflammatory, antidiuretic, anti-viral, aphrodisiac, antispasmodic, blood tonic, carminative, expectorant, kidney tonic, and sedative.

Properties of Rosa spp. hips/fruit are stomachic, antidiarrheal, cholesterol lowering, antidiuretic, stabilizing and binding, astringent, blood tonic, diuretic (in Ayurveda), laxative, nutritive, carminative.

Traditional and modern indications for Rose include:

-kidney and bladder infections
-dysmenorrhea, amenorrhea, menorrhagia
-gout and rheumatism
-anxiety, depression
-various inflammations

In Ayurveda, Rose is also commonly added to formulations for treating skin problems (for its anti-Pitta properties), and for beautifying skin. In Western cosmetics, it is frequently employed as an anti-aging and nourishing component of the same. In Middle Eastern traditions and in India, Rose carries a spiritual connotation as a symbol of deep love, and is especially referenced in the Sufi and Bahai teachings. Its scent can be carried around the neck of the wearer to help induce deep states of meditation and devotion.

Examples of TCM patterns where Rose can be employed include: Spleen Qi Deficiency, Heart Qi Deficiency, Blood Deficiency, Kidney Yin and Yang Deficiencies, and Essence Deficiency. A well-known TCM formula that includes Rose and treats spermatorrhea is Jin Suo Gu Jing Wan.
