Marma Therapy

Marma therapy is an ancient Ayurvedic practice that focuses on stimulating specific vital points on the body known as “Marma points.” These points are considered to be the junctions where consciousness meets matter and they play a crucial role in the body’s energy flow and overall health.

What are Marma Points?

  • Definition: Marma points are vital energy points located at the intersections of muscles, veins, ligaments, bones and joints. There are 107 major Marma points in the body, each with specific therapeutic benefits.
  • Function: These points are believed to be channels for the flow of life force energy (prana). Stimulating these points can help balance physical, mental and emotional health.
