Marma are sensitive points that are serving as gates between body’s physical and energetic levels. Marma are vital points in the body stimulating which, physical strength and working of nervous system can be improved through this therapy. The vital energies of the body run through 72,000 subtle channels known as nadis. Obstruction , blockage , deviation in flow of these energies cause imbalance. That leads to uneasiness and disease. Eliminating the obstruction in gross and subtle channels in the body and allowing free flow of vital energies is the basic idea behind Marma Therapy.
This therapy combines pressing marma points in a similar way as pressing acupressure points. More precision is required here given the sensitivity of the marma points and the energy it entails. This can also be done in the form of oil massages; where the choice of oil depends on the needs of the individual client. An hour long massage at the marma points followed by hot steam opens up the pores of the physical body and improves blood circulation and opens up the system to receive more oxygen in the body. The more the body receives oxygen, more are the toxins flushed out making the client feel light in body and mind and more revitalised.
