Marma Chikitsa

  1. Marma Chikitsa is a significant aspect of the Ayurvedic treatments where specific points are present on the body where the application of pressure induces the flow of vital energy (prana) along a complex system of subtle channels called (nadis).
  2. Ayurveda recognizes about 107 therapeutic marma points. The injury to some of these lethal marma points can lead to instant death.
  3. The word Marma literally means a Tender full vital point, which is a conjugation of muscle, nerve, joint, bone, tendon, artery and vein either in combination of two, three etc. or all the above structures.
  4. The healing through marma Abhyanga affects the chakras, Physical health and the doshas. The purpose of a marma Abhayangam is to stimulate the various body organs and systems.
  5. The actions of Marma are controlled by the Pranic Vayu (cosmic energy principle in human body). This Prana Vayu is essential to maintain the life or longevity of a person.
  6. Marma therapy focuses on energizing the body to relieve occupational illness and stress related diseases. Often, it helps the couples to re-establish harmony in marital life.

Role of Marma


  1. It removes blocks in energy channels called strotras.
  2. It pacifies vata dosha, (air and space elements), bringing it to its normal path— especially vyana vata, (a sub-dosha which controls the autonomic nervous system.)
  3. It creates physical, mental and emotional flexibility. Because of ama (toxins) and because of vata, human beings after 35 or 40 years of age become rigid — and this happens to animals and plants too. As vata increases in our body, we experience degeneration. This rigidity can mean becoming fixed in ideas, emotions and physical movements.
  4. This gentle treatment creates an opportunity to experience powerful and dynamic transformation at the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels by building a positive link with the unconscious mind. Many times people are not able to go outside their ‘comfort zones.’ They think they have absolute limitations. After marma is done, they can start taking positive risks.
  5. This is a significant aspect of the Ayurvedic treatment. Marmmas are specific points on the body where application of pressure induces flow of vital energy(Prana) along a complex system of subtle channels called (nadis). Basing on the knowledge enumerated in Dhanur Veda (deals in martial art) ayurveda recognizes about 107 therapeutic marmma points.
  6. Thus healing through marmma abhyanga effects the chakras, Physical health and the doshas. The purpose of a marmma Abhyang is to simulate the various body organs and system. Kalari Marmma Therapy focuses On energizing the body to relieve occupational illness and stress related diseases. often, it helps the couples to re-establish harmony in maritial life.
