Marma Massage therapy is an ancient Indian practice. The focus is the manipulation of subtle energy (prana) in the body for the purposes of supporting the natural (self)healing process.
Ayurvedic medicine (“Ayurveda” for short) is one of the world’s oldest holistic (“whole-body”) healing systems. It was developed more than 3,000 years ago in India. It’s based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit and stays in close relationship with Yoga.
Marma Chikitsa is an important aspect of the treatment where the application of pressure on these Marma points induces the flow of vital energy (prana) along a complex system of subtle channels called (nadis). The focus of marma point massage is primarily to manipulate subtle energy or prana, but physically they’re also very effective for relieving stiff muscles and boosting circulation. The Marma technique can support the healing process of many diseases. There are 107 marma points on the body and these are similar to meridians in acupuncture and acupressure in Chinese Medicine. The pressure applied on marma points is good in healing hypertension, neurological problems, stomach aches, gastritis etc.
