Abstract

Ayurveda is not only a medical science but also it is a life science devoted to cure the human sufferings along with better living. Marma is one of the important considerations as per ayurveda which play significant clinical role. Acharyas have enumerated and classified the 107 Marmas based on the region Shakhagat, Urogat, Udaragat, Pristhagat and Urdhvajatrugat. Acharya Sushruta has given detailed description of Marma in a chapter sixth “Pratyekmarmanirdeshshareer” of Shareer Sthan. Among all the body structures described in Ayurveda classics Marma has special importance. Marma Sthan are seat of Prana. Prana are nothing but source of Urja(energy). Marma Sthan are conglomeration of Mamsa, Sira, Snayu, Asthi and Sandhi. If Marma Sthan get injured then it can cause any deformity or death. If these Marma Sthan are properly stimulated, then many diseases can be treated. Back of the body is the area situated behind the Uras(thoracic cavity) and the Udara(abdominal cavity) of the body.
