What is Marma Shakti Therapy?

 A marma is a vital point on the body through which consciousness and different types of tissues intersect. Some of the marma points coincide with acupuncture points. 

As practiced by Daren, a Marma Shakti Therapy session consists of the application of oil to various points and zones on the body in a precise sequence. With over 300 different oils to choose from the spectrum of healing effects is vast. 

Sessions may include nasya, precision Shirodhara, abhyanga, mantras, organ dhara and aromatherapy techniques. Every session is customized for each unique individual. Daren’s Marma Shakti Therapy is a precision Ayurvedic Aromatherapy. This balances the elements and dosha's, relieves stress, establishes improved glandular homeostasis and achieves a profound therapeutic effect which continues for some time after the session.   

Many people find Daren's Marma Shakti Therapy to be more efficient and effective than regular panchakarma.
