Marma is based on the model of a lighted being or the consciousness that fills all human beings and flows and radiates through our thoughts and emotions, nerves and tissues.

Due to 5 factors, viz., 2.upbringing, 3.perceived notions, 4.relationships, and 5. personal set of values, these light beams get scattered away from their normal flow. Some beams lose their amplitude, others lose their direction. Yet others lose their intensity or focus. This is what results in illness, pain, grief, guilt, fear and weakness.

Marma Chikitsa or Therapy is a revolutionary technique to normalize and balance the light body. Though mentioned in the ancient texts, in the modern context it is only recently being rediscovered and reapplied.

When it came to healing and restoring fitness, the ancients rarely looked at anatomy as a mass of muscle, tissue, bone or organ. Rather, they perceived it as a body of glowing consciousness, and used the time honored techniques of Meditation, Massage, Showering, Walking, soft Touch, Pranayama and Yoga.
