One of the biggest contributions to the world is Ayurveda’s Marma Points. Ayurveda is a system of health that has been around for more than three thousand years. It is the mother of all medical systems. Acupuncture, naturopathy, homeopathy, siddha medicine, modern medicine, all have their roots in Ayurveda.
What are marma points?
Toxins, stress, and negative emotions get blocked in the marma points for years, leading to pain, energy blockages, swelling, and the manifestation of various diseases. Blocked mamas in Ayurveda are healed through applying pressure, massage oils, gentle heat, internal and external use of herbs, and meditation. You can get a full marma therapy, which energizes all 107 marma points or you can work on specific points for a desired result.
The 5 most important marmas and their functions
ADHIPATI - 1 marma point-“lord of all, supreme"
STHAPANI - 1 marma point - “provides support”
Hrudaya - 1 marma point - “protective”
Nabhi- 1 marma point - “central part”
Basti- 1 marma point
“bag, sac, pouch”
Knowing these five main marma points, practice massaging them with a circular motion every day. You can use stimulating oils like ginger if that’s what you need or you can use relaxing oils such as lavender and blue chamomile. Keep yourself healthy and vibrant by working on these points daily.
