Marma means secret points and areas on the body which are having access to mind and body. Live Body is generally activated through three (3) energies which are called Vatha, Pittha and Kapha.. Mind of the being works through three (3) Gunas called Satva, Rajas and Tamas which activate these Energies.. There are about 72,000 subtle channels called as nadis thru which the Vital Energies transit . Obstruction , block , deviation in flow of these energies cause imbalance. That leads to uneasiness and disease and sometime to death. Eliminating the obstruction in gross and subtle channels in the body and allowing free flow of vital energies is the basic idea behind Marma Therapy.
The Marma treatment/therapy is unique and requires advanced skill levels in treatment of Stress and various chronic diseases. Both Ayureda and Kalaripayattu systems link with Marma. There are 107 marma points mentioned in Ayurveda and Kalaripayattu for Marma. The approach for Marma Therapy through Ayurveda and Kalaripayattu are different.. In Kalaripayattu system the Marma therapy is more predominant than in Ayurveda.
Both Kalaripayattu and Ayurveda system connects these marma points to various systems of the body. The internal systems in the body are treated in these sciences with the stimulation of these marma points which are connected to them. Stimulation of these points makes the vital energy flow freely, thereby helping to reduce the stress and diseases. This is unique.
