Family Tradition

The present chief physician Dr Manoj comes from a long line of vaidyas who have practiced Ayurveda for the last 250 years. His grand-uncle Shri Keshavan Nair needs special mention because of his contributions to Marma Ayurveda.

Shri Kesavan Nair  was an expert in Marma, Ayurveda and Yoga and he combined these great sciences with Kalari and formulated an effective system of treatment for wellness as well as for alleviating majority of modern life style diseases. Thus was born Marma Ayurveda, Marma Yoga and Marma Meditation.

Sree Ramakrishna Ayurveda Yogasramam was built by this great healer for meeting the health concerns of people. He was fondly called Marmayogi by the people and in his memory, the healing centre was renamed as MARMMAYOGI. The name itself gives a concise definition of its total functions, ie a unique combination of Ayurveda, Marma and Yoga.

Shri Keshavan Nair (fondly called as Marmmayogi by his patients)  was a pioneer in Marma Ayurveda treatments. We trace his history from the lineage of famous Ovoor Kalari, where he learnt the science and became a master. 

Ovoor is a centuries old traditional family who practiced the martial art-form of Kerala (Kalaripayatuu). This family maintained a full-fledged martial art school (Kalari). In those days the ‘Asaan’ or the headmaster of such martial art schools had to play important ministerial role in the courtyard of ruling king. He was entrusted by the king to collect tax, educate the public and give intensive training to selected people in martial arts; so that in times of emergency the king could call upon these super skilled warriors for defense. Yet an important and another major function of a ‘Kalari’ was to ensure the social as well as the physical wellness of the people in general.
