What People are Saying

“I was really nervous going into my first Marma session but Jonny’s knowledge and calming presence made me feel at ease. I’ve since had four Marma Therapy sessions with him and they have each been very powerful, helping me to release stuck emotions and energies in my body that have been wanting to move for a long time. Jonny is a true healer and cares so much about his work. I always know that I’m going to get exactly what I need from a session with him.” – Katey  S.

“The Marma Therapy treatment allowed me to so clearly see the parts of my body and mind that need work. I left the session feeling incredibly light, aware, and awake. A few days later the effects of Marma Therapy still persist and have inspired me to take better care of myself everyday through small daily rituals. I will definitely prioritize this powerful healing modality as much as possible in the future.” – Sylvia

“In the Marma session I experienced both deep relaxation as well as activation of the body’s innate healing capacity. I really enjoyed it although it is not pain-free (in a good way!!) Highly recommended.” – Jahnavi

“Jonny has a true gift of healing others with his hands, energy and voice. I very much enjoyed my marma massage/stretching session and really appreciated the chanting he did. It created a harmonic rhythm to the bodywork that boosted my spirit and eased my tension for days after my session. I will definitely be back for more!” – Shana E

“Jonny is a gentle, compassionate, and inspiring human being who I feel so grateful to have received a healing session from! His presence and caring alone are healing. Even after reading all the details, I didn’t totally know what to expect from a marma session, but I knew right away that I was in good hands and I was open to receiving whatever benefits came from the session. I found it to be both relaxing and invigorating at the same time. I felt calm, clear, peaceful and energized after. The session itself was a sort of journey, and I sort of moved in and out of different layers of my own being, and got exactly what I needed. Thank you Jonny, for showing up so fully!” – Rayna B.

“This is a completely unique experience, almost a spiritual one. Jonny has combined multiple types of modalities into a total package of healing. I would pay any day for the full experience.

FAQ

What’s so special and different about this treatment?

The Marma Chikitsa, or marma therapy treatment, is highly unique and is unlike any other treatment in the U.S. This particular treatment stems from an ancient warrior tradition in India that involves a sacred  bodywork approach and positive healing touch.

Marma is highly unique in that it isn’t your traditional spa treatment. This is a deeply healing session and is used to address the underlying root imbalances of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual pain. It is a mind/body integration system. While most people leave their session feeling very relaxed, this deep inner somatic work can bring up some uncomfortable, yet highly transformative sensations, feelings, and thoughts. I will be there to guide you every step of the way.

Where does treatment take place?

Marma sessions are offered on a traditional Thai mat on the floor. You will need to be willing and able to safely and comfortably get up and down from the treatment floor mat. Sessions take place in my healing space in Pacific Beach.

How long does a treatment take?

The length of time commitment for an initial session is about 3 hours. This includes intake, the session, breaks if needed, and integration period at the end. Shorter sessions starting at 30 minutes are available and customizable, so you can choose which aspect of a full session (Yoga Physiotherapy, Deep Tissue Release, Marma Point Acupressure, Akara Massage, and/or Pranic Energy Healing) your body is needing on any particular day. For best value and most benefit, a full treatment is always recommended. 

What should I bring/wear?

The most important thing is to bring is an open mind and a willingness to be fully present for your session. Wear comfortable clothes, similar to what you would wear to a yoga class or massage. The Akara massage does use oil and there could be some transfer to clothing. Water, pillows, and blankets will be provided, but feel free to bring anything that will make you feel more comfortable.

Is there anyone that should NOT get this treatment?

Marma Therapy is a very safe, unique, simple, and powerful treatment for most people. If you have any questions or concerns about whether or not Marma is right for you, schedule a free 10 minute Discovery Session with me here. I currently use an Ayurvedic oil blend for the Akara Massage. It contains a special mix of Indian roots, plants, fruit, etc. in sesame oil. If you have any known sensitivities/allergies or other concerns about this unique blend of oil, please contact me before booking your session.
