Siravedhana, also known as Marmapuncture, is an integral part of Ayurveda and utilizes a meridian and point system similar to acupuncture. It is almost a lost healing art within the practice of Ayurveda due to many factors. There has been considerable effort in the past few years to revive the practice of this energetically based therapy.
Siravedhana can be used to treat the imbalances in the body that present as physical disease while also helping to balance the emotions. The therapy looks similar to other therapies such as acupressure or acupuncture since it focuses on opening the circulation through various pathways and points on the body (marma points).
Dr. McCormick uses a variety of traditional and modern techniques in his practice of Siravedhana including thermal, manual, electrical and photonic (laser) techniques to influence the body's healing potential within the practice of this Ayurvedic healing art. He addresses a wide variety of health and wellness concerns combining this effective therapy with the other aspects of Ayurveda including herbal medicines. Patients find treatments to be very relaxing and revitalizing.
