Although Marma Chikitsa is as ancient a healing therapy as acupuncture, and even older; it’s far more rare to encounter it today.
Because of its “spiritual” component it differs from other “hands on” therapies. I’ll explain as you read on.
Let me offer a brief recap of what Marma therapy is:
Marma therapy is the energy healing of Ayurveda; utilizing 107 points or “doorways” into the body and consciousness. Each point allows for entry into the “chakras”- the vibrational energy centers along the spine in the “subtle” body, releasing blocked energy and stimulating pranic flow.
Marma points, considered “doorways” or “entry points” into our body’s inner pathways, when gently pressed on the skin can stimulate a chain of positive events.
