Today is Sunday in this part of the world. In the morning I had the Ayurvedic Acupressure class (AA).So now here I am repeating the class to you.
As the name suggest this type of acupressure therapy given by Ayurveda principles.
There is a debate about where acupressure was discovered some say India some say China. But then in the olden days there were no borders like today to differentiate between two countries.
Since last night when I was researching the same I found out that the when Bodhi Dharma (a South Indian prince and Ayurveda Scientist ) when to china he took with the knowledge of Marma Chikitsa and Ayurveda researched if further and spread it across the oriental continent.
However the history, the point is Acupressure works for me.
So lets get back to Ayurvedic Acupressure (AA)
Till now we knew that there are 5 elements that makes us , Panch Tattva Theory (Maybe someday will give a full encounter about this Theory and Prakriti and origin of man)
- Akasha – Space
- Vayu – Air
- Agni – Fire
- Jal – water
- Prithvi – Earth
But it doesn’t end there in AA there are 5 more elements that forms our body which are equally important
6. Kaal – Time
7. Disha – Direction
8. Maan – Mind
9. Atma – Soul
10. Tam – Tammo Guna ( Creator if everything) also signified by 0
These latter five elements nos 6 to 10 are quotients of our Metaphysical body and are equally important to keep us healthy eg. A lot of individuals are physically fit but are not happy or have bipolar or mental issues or are confused about our own selves. These tattva represents them in modern science it is cure for Psychosomatic and Psychological disorders. So of course if you are not mentally healthy then it will reflect on your physical body so 5000 years back our Sages researched about the subject and derived these tattava …. Now there is always a scope for improvement so lot of research is happening ….. Lets see what new things can be discovered of this khestra called body.
Ok now moving forward these 10 elements are represented on our 10 fingers.
Check out the diagram to understand what is where
Another thing each finger is made of three joint each joint represents
- Vata ( first joint from top)
- Pitta ( middle joint)
- Kapha ( joint that joins fingers to palm)
Each joint represents and organ, endocrine organ body holes sense organs and energy.
Now as a therapist we have to learn this chart by heart so will take this week to learn.
Today only Ma’am joked about ” If you learn this chart you will be a doctor”
hahaaaaa….. I was like ” As If” … there are so many secrets in our body as rightly said in Ayurveda ” “I am the Infinite Reality” the moment you learn about one thing there is another sitting in that inquisitive corner.
Next week we will continue with the AA since its vast and will have to break it into 2 or more parts.
Please pray for me this shit looks scary but fun to learn.
