Ayurveda Marma Point Massages

What is Marma Massage

Marma massage is a traditional Ayurvedic massage for stimulating vital energy points in the body. They can be compared to acupuncture points in Chinese medicine. However marmas are much larger in size and fewer in numbers than acupuncture points.

There are 107 marma points on the body, each serving a particular purpose, each with its own name and specific way of massaging it.
