A marma is a vital energy point accessed on the surface of the body. Marma therapy is an ancient Indian practice whose focus is the manipulation of vital energy (prana) in the body to aid the healing process. Marma’s knowledge allows the practitioner to influence the flow of prana both through the coarse and subtle bodies in order to restore the patient’s health and serenity. Marma therapy is based on the use of 107 points in the body to access the body and mind and it’s a conscious, systematic stimulation of those points that the practitioner deems necessary. Marma serve as a bridge between the body, mind, and spirit and are integral to promoting health, balance and well-being.
It is a gentle stimulation of specific energy points through whole body massage with natural oils. Essential oils can be used not only to stimulate marma points, but also to restore energy and to relax physically and psychologically.
There are several methods by which marma points can be stimulated. An Ayurvedic Practitioner can recommend a method that meets your specific needs. Herb-enriched oil is applied to extract “ama” (toxicity) and work on specific marma points in circular motions. Clockwise circles are used to stimulate energy flow, while opposite motions are used to (calming energy)
