A Marma point is a vital energy point located on the surface of the body. The Ayurvedic text describes 107 Marma points located on a human body. These points are infused with prana, the life force and imbued with consciousness. Marma points serve as a bridge between the body, mind and soul. Marma points are located at anatomical sites where veins, arteries, tendons, bones or joints intersect.
During the Marma Abhyanga massage, a trained therapist will give emphasis to generalised Marma points.
