What is Marma?
The innumerable streams of mind energy flowing within you meet each other at various points. At these points the streams form pools of mind energy. These pools of energy are close links between the mind and the physiology.
The points on the body through which one can gain access to the pools of energy are Marmas. Marmas are, in effect, the bridge between mind and body.
When Marma therapy is used along with the usual Ayurvedic treatments, it becomes Marma Ayurveda. Marma dramatically enhances the effectiveness of all the various Ayurvedic treatments.
How does it do this?
It is common knowledge that Ayurveda is a mind-body healing system and the healing is much faster if the mind energy supports the body treatment. The usual Ayurvedic treatments treat the body, while general meditation enhances the mind energy. But the energy channels between the mind and body is left unaddressed they stand separated. To bring the mind and body together, the tool of Marma plays the most effective and powerful role.
