Ayurveda is one of the world's oldest healing sciences. It stems from the Vedic culture of the Indian continent and has been in taught for thousands of years. It is a holistic healing practice that utilizes diet, lifestyle, herbs, and movement.

In Ayurveda, practitioners work with Marma Points, or points in the body used for healing. By applying pressure and massaging these points, one manipulates subtle energy or prana which can induce healing in different parts of the body.

The Talahridaya point, which is closely related to the heart chakra and stimulates circulation throughout the body.

It is believed that we have 107 different marma points throughout our bodies, each serving a particular purpose. They can be activated with different types of massage and oils depending on each person.

Yoga is a ancient tradition linked to Indian cultures.
