Marma Therapy : Energy Points

Secrets of yogic healing can be started through the study of Ayurveda, the traditional natural medicine of India. In fact classical Yoga depends on upon Ayurveda for its language and practice of healing both body and mind. Traditional Yoga therapy was comprised in a greater Ayurvedic context of the healing arts, plus the use of diet, and herbs. Marma therapy is another significant approach common to both Yoga and Ayurveda, which merits a greater examination.

Marma is a Sanskrit term for vulnerable points on the body. Injury to marmas rapidly disturbs the health and energy of a person and in the case of some marmas can even show fatal.

Ayurveda also treats marmas with massage, oils and aromas more commonly than with either acupuncture or acupressure. So while we can draw a comparison between marmas and acupuncture points and their treatment, we should not confuse the two either.

Marmas are special Ayurvedic energy points like to acupuncture points. Marmas are also locations in which dosha of Vata, Pitta and Kapha can be detained, along with their understated essences of prana, tejas and ojas. As sensitive zones, marmas can grasp various emotions like fear (vata), anger (pitta) and attachment (kapha), as well as the gunas or primary qualities of sattva (calm), rajas (aggression) and tamas (inertia). In this regard the idea of marmas goes outside modern medicine and its purely physical definitions to the ethics of mind and body medicine.

Marmas are of various measures virtual to the tissues that make them up, as clear as bone, tendon, muscle, vein or nerve, plus relative to channels that transmit the doshas and channels that carry thought and emotion. Many Marmas are on marginal regions of the body like arms and legs.

The treatment of marmas, however having many approaches, is mainly a matter of therapeutic touch. Ayurveda services massage and pressure to marma points. Ayurveda uses special medicated massage oil, usually herbs that is prepared in a sesame oil base.
