Marma Point Therapy: is an ancient practice in which the practitioner gently places his or her fingers on the anatomical sites where flesh, veins, arteries, tendons, bones and joints meet up. This ancient form of treatment, is similar to acuppressure, and dates back to between 1500 — 1200 BC.
There are 107 Marma points throughout the body.
Marma Point Therapy involves using the fingers to stimulate the Marma points thereby promoting physical and mental rehabilitation.
As with Acupuncture, these points correspond to internal organs and systems of the body which react to manual stimulation.
A professional therapist isolates the Marma points and cleans them out by increasing the blood flow to the affected part of the neuro-muscular junction. They also aim to tone the surrounding muscles.
