Ayurvedic Marma Therapy Course

$750.00

Marma points are 107 energetic body points that allow access to the body, mind and consciousness. During this seven-day, 49 hour hands - on program, students will learn the history, classifications, theory and locations, and the effect of each point on the doshas and organs of the body.  Following this you will learn how to interact with each marma point using massage, essential oil application and pranic healing (Ayurvedic energy work) to restore balance to the body and mind. Specific protocols will be taught for bringing healing to different organ systems. Students will work in groups of two throughout the program.

About CCA California College of Ayurveda (CCA) is a state-approved school registered with the State of California. Registration means we have met certain minimum standards imposed by the state for registered schools on the basis of our written application to the state. This agreement is legally binding when sent to the College over the internet and payment of the deposit is made. These actions indicate that you have been given reasonable time to read and understand this agreement and the Refund Policy listed below, that you agree to your rights and responsibilities, and that you have seen a brochure or announcement describing the seminar or course that you plan to attend and information about the College.

Any questions or problems concerning CCA which have not been satisfactorily answered or resolved by the school should be directed to the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education, Department of Consumer Affairs, 2535 Capitol Oaks Avenue, SUITE 400, Sacramento, CA 95833, (888) 370-7589, bppe@dca.ca.gov.

After the “Final Balance Due” date, no refunds will be given for either the deposit or additional money paid toward full tuition (although a student may receive a credit toward the same course in the future). If you are registered for a seminar / short course that the College cancels, you will receive a full refund of any fees paid.

Disclosures Nudity Disclosure All students should read the following information about nudity and proper conduct carefully.
 
1.  At some of our body therapy intensives (ayurvedic body therapy, marma and dough basti) students may be exposed to some nudity. Instruction will be given to participants about proper draping techniques in an attempt to provide a professional and modest environment.  Learning takes place in a large room with multiple massage tables and work stations. Students, who wish to, are supported to bring screens to surround their massage table and work station.  This is not a requirement.
 
2.  During the ayurvedic body therapy course, we will be demonstrating and teaching the traditional full body ayurvedic massage.  The technique that we will demonstrate and teach includes massage of the chest and breast tissue.  This is a professional therapeutic massage. Students are NOT required to participate in receiving or practicing this technique. 
 
3.  Teachers at these programs may be male or female.  Teachers demonstrate the massage procedures and then walk around assisting students in proper hand positions and movements.  Students work in groups with one student receiving a therapy while other students provide the therapy.  As teachers walk around and assist students in their learning process, teachers may have to touch the bodies of students who are receiving massages.  If there is both a male and female teacher at your program, you may request that only the teacher of your choice provide assistance when you are the model on the table.  If there are only teachers of one sex at the program, participants agree to allow those teachers to assist the students who are learning.  
4.  There is no massaging or intentional exposure of genitalia at these workshops. 
5.   At the panchakarma program (not part of the summer intensive series) instruction includes the administration of Basti. Basti is the application of medicated oil rectally with an enema tube. All students will learn to give and receive Basti. However, no one is required to participate in this procedure, and may opt out of any phase of this section if it makes them uncomfortable (Applies to Pancha Karma Workshop Only).
 
Sexual Harassment Policy
1.  Any student who does not follow proper draping instructions at the program may be asked to leave the program and no refund shall be offered.
2.  Any student accused of touching another student in an inappropriate manner may be asked to leave the program and no refund shall be offered.  
3.  Any student who makes inappropriate / offensive sexual comments at the workshop may be asked to leave the program and no refund shall be offered.
