Marma Massage – Acupressure Points
Marma points are positions on the body where flesh, veins, arteries, tendon, bones and joints meet. They may be also described as junctions where constitution of the body meets (Vayu, Pitta and Kapha). These points are also where the three aspects of realization meet, i.e. the inner self, outer world and the intersection of the two; and junctions between the physical, astral and causal bodies. Marma points are of great importance to a persons body, mind and spirit, as these are the points where the spirit hinges the body. Thus healing through Marma Abhayanga affects the chakra, physical health and doshas.
