Among the hidden sciences (Gupta Vidya) of India, Marma science is the most important.
Marmas are not superficial landmarks on the body surface but these are deep-seated important physio-anatomical structures. Far more powerful than any Acupressure, Acupuncture, Tapping points.
Marma Therapy is a Science that was preserved and associated largely as a support to martial arts and warfare can now be used and applied for normal healing on a wide range of physical and mental diseases as a result of research and application, since 1993, of this little known branch of Ayurveda. Marma science and therapy, based on re-energizing vital points in the body, this course releases it from its hidden status as Gupta Vidya, known in a limited way to a few practitioners.
Marma science and marma therapy is an untouched chapter of Indian Surgery. With the exploration of marma science the whole scenario of Indian Surgery may change in multidimensional approaches.
Marma therapy is the original point system of healing in the body. As it spread out of India, it influenced the development of Chinese acupuncture and Kung fu. Its origins are South India within a martial arts tradition known as Kalaripayattu. It was utilized to defend kingdoms during times when expertise in hand-to-hand combat was the mark of a great warrior. These ancient warriors understood subtle energy, and they used their knowledge to disable or kill an opponent.
Marma therapy is an ancient Indian practice whose focus is the manipulation of subtle energy (prana) in the body for the purposes of supporting the healing process. Marma therapy is based on the utilization of 107 points in the body which are considered to be access points to body, mind, and consciousness. Knowledge of Marma allows the practitioner to influence the flow of prana through both the gross and subtle bodies for the purposes of restoring health and peace of mind.
To simplify you can think of Marma Therapy as acupuncture without needles.
Marma science is the combination of scientific attitude and religious practices by the mediation of experiential philosophy and is part of the human beings' long experience in day to day life for the achievement of mortal and immortal gains.
In scientific, mortal state, nothing can be absolutely provided because the scientific results are predicated on assumptions.
Marma science is an instant, permanent, natural, non-invasive way of healing today, because it succeeds in conserving many of the highest moral values of its adherents.
It promotes calmness; self control, self healing, realization and happiness and does much to prevent sufferings and sorrow.

Major marma points correspond to the seven chakras, or energy centers of the body, while minor points radiate out along the torso and limbs. These points range in size from one to six inches in diameter. The points were mapped out in detail centuries ago in the ‘ Sushruta Samhita ’, a classic Ayurvedic text.
The points cover both the front and back of the body, including
22 on the lower extremities
22 on the arms
12 on the chest and stomach
14 on the back, &
37 on the head and neck

Proper stimulation of these marmas helps in curing edematous and inflammatory processes in both upper and lower limbs besides also increase the work efficiency of thorax organs like heart, lungs, oesophagus.

Marma therapy is gaining popularity as an effective and rapidacting way of treatment. For effective marma therapy, diagnosis of disease and proper technique application is mandatory. It gives prompt results in different kinds of muscular, ligament, joint and nerve pains, tingling sensation, inflammation and heaviness. Marma therapy gives response in many other diseases in due course of time. Marma therapy is more effective than the conventional techniques like acupressure and others.However, being a rapid-acting technique, it should be performed very carefully. If not, there may be some complications and results may be variable. In other similar techniques like acupressure sometimes there is delayed response but it does not confer any adverse symptoms. Contrary marma points are very powerful, so in self-marma therapy and marma therapy for diseases, to get the best results some precautions are always advisable. Where proper precautions and procedures are followed accidents and complications in marma therapy are neither serious nor frequent.In a daily routine of self-marma practice, accidents are uncommon but in marma therapy administered by another person, accidents are more likely to occur because of lack of experience, overlooking the type of marma, excessive pressure exertion over the marma point. In all these conditions where there is any complication like vertigo, vomiting, desensitization of body part, severe pain, unconsciousness, immediate medical help is required.
It is advisable that those doctors who are engaged in regular practice of advanced marma therapy should be capable of managing these emergencies. To avoid accidents one should keep the following things in mind.
1. One should learn marma therapy properly with the practical training under the guidance of well-known experts of marma science.
2. One should keep the anatomical structure of particular marma in mind and exert pressure accordingly. For example sira marma should not be treated as asthi marma. Maximum pressure should be applied or exerted on sandhi, asthi, mansa, snayu marma but sira marmas should not be pressed forcibly. Gentle massage in upward, downward and from center to periphery directions should be done at the site of sira marma. Any extra pressure over the sira marma may give rise to complications. Especially the marma of the neck and head should be treated carefully and gently. Tappings, rubbing, knocking, gentle touch, alternate gentle pressure and release, application of medicated oil, paste are the methods of treating these marma.
3. The patient should be in sitting, upright or lying down position on a hard bed. Especially in severe condition marma therapy should be given in lying down position. In some cases of severe cervical lesions, pressure exerted in sitting posture over the marmas of upper extremity may lead to severe vertigo, nausea, vomiting and unconsciousness. This is more common in female patients. During marma therapy one should keep watching the facial expression of the patient.
Exertion of pressure on marma should be avoided immediately when the patient feels agonizing pain and discomfort.
Immediate medical help or following measures are needed for recovery.
1. Immediately place the patient in recumbent position on the bed or floor.
2. Try to lift the legs and keep the head end low.
3. Try to make proper ventilation.
4. Initiate the talahridaya marma and rubbing of palm and sole.
5. Massage the sides of neck in upward direction gently.
By following the above precautions, one may successfully take advantage of this powerful science of marma and marma therapy.
