Description

Marmas are special Ayurvedic energy points on the body similar to acupuncture points. Through manipulating them we can direct our Prana or vital energy for health, well-being and personal transformation. Marmas are connected to the charkas and nadis of Yoga and can be used for balancing both body and mind.

Marma therapy is one of the great tools of Yogic and Ayurvedic healing. A knowledge of marmas and how to treat them is important for all those who want to fully employ either system.

This is the first book on marma therapy published in the West. It clearly describes the 107 main marma points in location, properties and usage. It explains in detail how to treat them with many methods including massage, aromas, herbs and yoga practices.

Ayurveda and Marma Therapy is an essential reference guide for all students of Yoga, Ayurveda, massage or natural healing.
