Marma Therapy and the Benefits of learning Marma Therapy

MARMA THERAPY is a 5,000-year-old Indian Ayurvedic practice and the main focus of marma therapy is the opening of energy channels for healing the body, mind, and spirit.

The Sanskrit word “marma” actually means vulnerable point. Marma therapy harnesses the energies in the marma points for healing. Simply, Marma Therapy has an effect on the subtle energy of Marma points to relieve stiff muscles and boost blood circulation.

Marma therapy has an immediate healing and relaxing effect on the body when used as a treatment for others or as a self-treatment. Marma therapy involves subtle, and sometimes a more profound touch on marma points. The touch can bring about immense healing and rejuvenation.

“Marma Therapy is the energy healing of Ayurveda practice.”

Marma Therapy influenced the development of Chinese acupuncture. Ayurveda and Chinese medicines believe energy (Prana) stagnates in Marma points and both focus on freeing this energy in their healing practices.

Marma points are doorways to the 7 Chakras – centers in your body in which energy flows through.

In general, there are 107 Marma points in the human body. Marma points are points where the veins (Sira), ligament (Snayu), muscles (mamsa), bones (Asthi) and Joints (Sandhi) meet. More so, these special points (Sthana) in the body, if injured might lead to disability, disease or even a fatal condition.

“Marma Therapy is best practiced with sensitive hands and a proper training from a marma teacher.”
