Marma therapy is an important part of Ayurveda that helps to maintain health by cleansing blocked energy or "Pranas" which which flow in our "Nadis"
As per Acharya Sushrsat the Energy Points are most vital and defined as ‘there is likelihood of death when these points are inflicted. Hence, these areas are called Marma.
Marma in Sanskrit also means “Hidden Point” and are juncture points on the body where two or more types of tissue meet, such as muscles, veins, ligaments, bones or joints.
Marma therapy utilizes 107 points which are "doorways” into the body and consciousness. The mind is considered as the 108th Marma.
Marma therapy can actually alter consciousness and change one’s awareness. Working on the Marma points, we can control:
- Prana (energy) levels
- Our sensory and motor organs (Nadi)
- The entire System of our body and Mind
This gives us easier access to higher realms of consciousness. From that place, a person can move forward with self-care, creativity and renewed energy
