    What Is Marma Point Therapy?Marma Point Therapy PACE NAMA NCBTMB Continuing Education Massage Online

    Much like acupressure or acupuncture, marmas are like small “windows” on the skin’s surface and subcutaneous layers, acting as mystical junction points between body, mind, and spirit. They are the spaces in-between the relative world and the unified field of all possibilities. Activating marma points allows light and prana into the body, transforming the biochemistry of the physiology.

    The word marma comes from the root word “mar”. It means war and its archetype is the warrior. It is masculine in nature. The word for the planet Mars comes from the same root. It’s the planet of passion and war. It symbolizes the mythical deity “Ram”. The root word “ma” refers to the mother in Latin. Its archetype is the mother earth and is feminine in nature. This root word symbolizes the mythical deity “Sita”. When you put the two root words together and come up with Marma, we can understand why it is also seen as the primordial junction between Sita and Ram, the great lovers in the India culture.

    The Remedial Benefits of Marma Therapy:

    • Therapeutic effects can be experienced both distally and locally within the physiology.
    • Because marma points intrinsically have a large blood supply and many nerves, activating them can restore balance to the autonomic nervous system and harmonize the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems.
    • Endorphins, called opiods and neurotransmitters such as melatonin and seratonin are released during marma therapy, enhancing mood and relieving pain.
    • It clears pathways and improves functional and structural integrity of the body’s systemic channels (srotamsi).
    • It kindles the fire within all the tissues (dhatus), burns cellular toxins (ama) and disperses crystallized negative emotions that have been repressed in the cellular memory.
    • It relieves headache, joint and muscle pain.
    • Activating marmani can offer many of the same benefits of massage therapy but with a remedial focus
