Description of marma therapy :
Marmas are vital points in the body where the energy of life is concentrated.
MARMA, in Sanskrit means "secret": a hidden energy that is contained in certain anatomical places of vital importance.
It is a place where Sattva, rajas and tamas meet, where eternity and relativity meet.
A marma point in Ayurveda is defined as an anatomical area in which muscles (Mamsa), veins (Sira), ligaments (snayu), bones (ashti) and joints (Sandhi) meet and overlap.
It is not necessary that all these structures be present to identify a marma point.
Marma points are identified by exerting pressure on the anatomical area in which they are located and by detecting the impulse exerted or the pain felt by the patient.
In ancient times, the art of knowing, identifying and using the energy released by marma points by manipulation or pressure was long applied in war and medicine spread throughout the East. .
The stimulation of the marmas points allows to act on the physical and mental characteristics of the object, which allows us to exert very deep changes, to fortify the tissues, freeing blockages by allowing the blocked energy to be released from the body.
