Marma in Sanskrit literally means "secret" and is the anatomical place where muscles, veins, ligaments, bones and joints are located (mamsa, sira, snayu, asthi and sandhi).
According to the ancient texts, these are points that are fundamentally found on the surface of the skin, where important nerves called dhamani coincide with other structures such as muscles, tendons, etc. It is affirmed that they are those places where there is pain, noticeably sensitive and that show an abnormal pulsation.
At these points, toxins accumulate, diseases are reflected in the stiffness, swelling in these areas, even before these diseases manifest themselves externally.
Working with the marmas, we can make a diagnosis of these conditions, working either as a preventive work or under emergency cases.
They can be seen as vital points for being doors of direct access to prana or vital energy and are internally related to the nadis (energy channels also called meridians by Chinese medicine). And if they are inflicted harm they can cause serious problems, including death.
The secret power that these energy centers have is that when they are stimulated, they release the flow of prana to restore balance to the organism.
In this way, by manipulating these points, we can activate and deactivate painful memories that, hidden in the unconscious mind, cause emotional traumas and disharmonies such as panic syndrome, phobias, anxiety, depression, melancholy and low self-esteem and stress in general.
