Marmas

Points on the body where veins, arteries, tendon bone and flesh meet. Also it can be where väta, pitta, kapha, sattva, rajas and tamas meets. There are 108 marma points in our body. These points can be used to heal or to harm. They are strong energy centers and are somewhat similar to acupuncture points. Massaging these points helps to remove energy and toxic blocks from the body, also improving the function of internal organs.

These are the nerve crossings where nerves come to the fascia and relate to the vital human body organs. Marmas are the 365 vital energy points in the body of which 108 are of great importance in ayurveda. They are also called door receptors.

Marma is the connection point between matter and consciousness; on the skin there are 107 marma points that can be stimulated by touch.
