A Marma is a vital energy point located on the surface of the body. Like modern quantum physics, Ayurveda holds that a human being is not a solid, stable, material structure but an ever changing, dynamic collection of energy and intelligence in the larger field of energy and intelligence within the larger universal field of dynamic energy and intelligence.
Ayurveda text have described 117 major Marmani. These points are “vital” because they are infused with ‘Prana’ the life force, and imbued with consciousness. Consciousness expresses itself in lively, concentrated form at these points. Thus, Marmani serves as a bridge or doorway between the body mind and soul.
History Of Marma Therapy;
The science Marmani was developed in Vedic times. During ancient times in India and other regions of Asia martial arts schools emphasized the use of energy points for therapeutic purposes, to recover from bodily injuries. The Kalari Martial art school, Dhanurveda ( Vedic Archery), Malla Purna ( Vedic Wrestling ) and Vajra mushti (Vedic boxing) are traditional settings that developed this science.
Sushruta was a renowned Ayurvedic surgeon whose contributions to medicine were well known at least as long ago as the time of the Buddha. Sushruta applied the knowledge of Marmani to surgery diagnosis and further applied its science into a healing art.
