Marma Therapy: The Indian Form of Acupressure

Ayurveda is the oldest curative therapy in the world. It uses different ways like yoga, meditation, massage, and herbal medicines to heal the body and promote a healthy lifestyle.

One method used in Ayurveda to improve the flow of energy in the body is known as the ‘Marma Therapy.’ Several energy points in the body called the ‘Marma’ points are massaged and pressed gently to remove energy blockages in the body. Marma therapy is a part of the Indian Ayurvedic massage which is also considered as an alternative to Acupressure. But, do you know that the acupressure is developed by taking inspiration from marma therapy? In the ancient time, Chinese scholars came and studied Ayurveda in India and formed their technique of natural medicine and Acupressure.

Marma therapy was originated in India by the warriors of the world’s oldest martial arts called ‘Kalaripayattu.’ They have discovered 108 marma points in the body which are located on the intersection of two or more veins, joints, ligaments, limbs, and muscles. Marma points are present all over the body from head to toe. Marma massage can lead to a drastic improvement in both physical and mental health of an individual.

How is Marma Therapy Different from Acupressure?

While Acupressure is inspired from Marma therapy, the location of points and the technique of treatment is different. The pressure points of acupressure are located in different places of the body from marma therapy. Also, acupressure uses external tools like needles to apply pressure on the points. But marma points are very delicate and must be massaged by using hands only.

Marma therapy has several physical and mental health benefits. It removes toxins from the body, improves muscle and organ health, reduces stress and maintains an emotional balance.
