Father of Surgery Acharya Susrutha has explained about Marma “Maarayanthithe Marma” means if any individual gets trauma to this point he will die.
Marma points are positions on the body where muscles, veins, arteries, nerves, tendon, bones and joints meet. They may also be described as the junctions where Vata, Pitta and Kapha meet; where Sattwa, Rajas and Tamas meet; these are the points that could be used to heal or harm.
While a healer uses these points to heal, for a warrior the very same spots could be used to harm.
There are 108 Marma Sthanas in our body and these points are distributed all over the body.
In simple words Marma Sthanas are the points through which PRANA – vital life force or energy flows in the body. Gentle touch or light massage on these points balances the flow of Prana and gives total relaxation.
Therapists at Sri Sri Tattva are especially trained in this Unique Marma Therapy and have healed many over the years.
Marma Therapy is very effective in reducing Blood pressure, Anxiety Neurosis, Sleeplessness, Migraine headaches and stress related health issues. Not only does this therapy have a curative effect, but it also benefits one to maintain Physical and Mental Health.
To experience the deepest relaxation a combination of Abhyangam & Marma taken together does wonders.
