Marma point massage

For centuries, practitioners have been mapping the human body and linking various limbs, organs, immune responses and even emotions to specific energy points.

These ‘points’ are referred to in Chinese Medicine as Acupuncture or Acupressure points, and in Ayurveda and yogic healing as Marma points. This isn’t to say that the two systems discount each other – many books on Marma points also speak of meridians and many books on acupuncture mention chakras. According to both Ayurveda and Chinese Medicine, energy (prana or chi) can stagnate in these points. Both systems have healing practices focused on freeing this energy, whether through acupuncture or acupressure,

Marma points are energy points in the body used for healing in Ayurveda. They can be compared to acupuncture points in Chinese Medicine.

Literally translated, Marma means ‘hidden or secret, in Marma point massage, these points are used for healing purposes. They’re also identified as neurolymphatic points, stimulating the removal of lymph and enhancing the efficiency of the body’s organs.

The focus of marma point massage is primarily to manipulate subtle energy or Prana, but physically they’re also very effective for relieving stiff muscles and boosting circulation. Marma therapy is used extensively throughout Ayurveda, and is considered important in self care and self-healing practices. Just as many of us are discovering, the key to greater health and happiness doesn’t necessarily lie outside of us, but instead is quite literally at our fingertips.

There are said to be 107 Marma points on the body, each serving a particular purpose, and each with its own name and specific way of massaging it.
