Abstract

MARMA AND MARMA THERAPY: A REVIEW

*Negi Vineeta Kumari, Parvat Susheela, Vyas Anju, Sharma Om. and Sharma S. K.

ABSTRACT

Ayurveda is a science of life which believes in treating mind, body and soul for ensuring a complete state of health and this ancient wisdom is well reflected in the unique concept and composition of marma also. Marma are not only anatomical landmarks but they are also the sites where tridosha are present with their subtle forms Prana, Ojusa (soma) and Tejas (agni). They also contain 3 gunas namely sattva, raja, tamas (manas contents) and soul or life force (bhutatma). Detailed description on marma and marma chikitsa is available in Sushruta Samhita and Siddha respectively. Manipulating or stimulating Marma in the management of various diseases is called Marma Chikitsa/ Therapy. Through stimulation of marma by various methods the Prana (vital energy) existing in marmas may be directed to remove blockages (even in remotely connected areas) and stimulate energy flow thus resulting in a state of healthy body, mind and spirit. This article aims to provide an overview on marma and marma therapy. Details are collected from ancient science texts, Ayush physicians/surgeons, internet and personal experience.

Keywords: Marma, Varmam point, Prana, Siddhar.
