Ayurveda believes that healing comes from within the body itself, so when these marma points are stimulated, they encourage the body to get to work on ailments and pain.
Known in the ancient Vedic era as ‘Bindu, marma points identify mystical points on the outer body that can activate a ‘door’ to the inner body when pressed.
- The junction between the nose and eyebrows on the lower, inner part of the ridge of the eyebrow.
- The third eye, in the forehead.
- The outer corners of the nose.
- Between the nose and upper lip.
- The corners of the mouth.
- Centre of the chin.
- Centre of cheekbones.
- The four points around the ear.
The 107 points are located around the whole body and where muscles, veins, ligaments, bones, and joints meet. Each Marma point has its own name, associated health benefits and techniques to stimulate it. Marmas differ in size and are traditionally measured in ‘anguli’ or ‘finger units’.
Marma points can be extremely powerful for releasing stuck energy and rejuvenating, but these are also sensitive points that can be used to harm. These are the points used in martial arts for self-defence.
In Ayurveda marma points are only used for healing.
Stimulating these marma energy points can help relieve pain, tension, and stress, increase blood flow, improve skin tone, and boost immunity.
In western medicine, marma points are recognised as neuro-lymphatic points. That means they stimulate the lymph glands, which increases your immunity. Marmas also relieve muscle stiffness and boost circulation.
Specific essential oils can be used during marma point massages, for a more powerful result. The oils will be chosen depending on the imbalance that needs to be adjusted.
