Marmas, the vital points or the subtle energy centres of the body are considered as the storehouses of life-breath pranic energy. Therefore any thrust or unusual throbbing on these vital centers can cause serious health problems. Similarly stimulating or massaging the marma points give benefits to the area of their locations and improves the function of the connecting organs.
There are 72,000 energy-flowing meridians (Nadis) in the human body which are connected to seven energy centers or chakras. By the activation of Chakras (wheels) and Marmmas, dormant Nadis can be stimulated to channelize more energy through the body. In the process of stimulating and enhancing the Nadis, Prana can also be harmonized. The knowledge and application of marma have their roots in Ayurveda and ancient martial art form called Kalari.
Therefore marma therapy can be used as a part of rejuvenation and detoxification therapy as it helps to balance doshas and promote energy. In the healing process, marma therapy can be a part of Panchakarma Treatment. It can be used as a preventive measure as it is an important tool in Ayurvedic treatment for preventing and treating the imbalance of the body.
