A course on Marma’s will be given by Thomas Punnen and Naveen Gupta from may 20th until may 24th.

This course is unique because it provides knowledge that (even in India) is not given in standard courses. This knowledge comes from a tradition that one can only learn if the person is dedicated to study the Marma point during multiple years. India has a known Guru tradition. That means that people are only given knowledge if the student is fully committed to his studies. The in-depth knowledge about channels is almost impossible to obtain through normal marma’s.

Thomas Punnen believes there are the standard 108 Marma points of the Sushruta, but that the Sushruta has only mentioned the most important ones. From his perspective there are many more. Furthermore, it is not just about Mala points, but for treatment he likes to focus on the Marma channels. Thomas has had an active practice in Amsterdam for many years and was very successful in treating various back complaints. One needs to know exactly which meridians are important in order to achieve successful treatment. Thomas makes the diagnosis based on temperature differences between Marma points. For this, one needs to gain at least some practical experience to be able to feel the effect.

The course that is offered is only intended for those who already know the basic principles of Ayurveda and have experience in this area. The intention is only to explain per indication which Marma channels you should treat in order to achieve a result. The starting point is to transfer as much practical experience as possible from Thomas to your own practice.

It will be a unique course that cannot be learned anywhere else. Thomas is not a natural speaker and therefore the course will be given together with Dr. Naveen Gupta.The preliminary program is that during the morning Naveen Gupta will go through the theory of the Marma points and later, in the afternoon, everyone will apply it in practice.
