The knowledge of Marma, the vital energy centers in body, was explained in ancient Ayurvedic texts of ayurveda from India. Marmas are secret vital points of the body and mind, the seat for consciousness, and the energy reservoirs. Marmas are junction points of muscles, veins, ligaments, bones, and joints. The seat of Prana (vital energy) resides in the Marmas. Marmas are important key energy centers in Ayurveda, Yoga and Meditation. Marmas connect to various subtle nerves (Nadis) and energy wheels (Chakras) and resemble the acupressure points. The life force (Prana) situates in the Marma points.
Toxins, stress and negative emotions can get blocked in themarma points for years, leading to pain, energy blockage, swelling and various kinds of illnesses. Blocked marmas are removed in Ayurveda through applying pressure, massage oils, warmth, external use of herbal and aromatic oils, and sound therapy. Marmas are key points to focus on while performing ayurvedic massage.
