Marma is the Seat of Life
– Sushruta Samhita –
What are marmas and how to use their magic for your health?
Connecting mind and body, Marmas are subtle, intelligent and very powerful control points on the surface of our body. At these vital points we find not only condensed information about the physiology of the body, physical organs and systems, but also the content of consciousness and emotions. They are highly reactive and powerful points for treatment and prevention.
Marma Therapy — the art of treating specific vital points on the human body — is one of the greatest healing secrets of Ayurveda. It can be used to detoxify, strengthen and revitalize the body, as well as being beneficial for rejuvenation and relaxation or to release blocked energy.
By treating marmas we can stimulate the function of the internal organs, promote self-healing and harmonize mind and body. We can improve eyesight, balance the digestive system, balance the Doshas (mind-body regulators), alleviate headaches, reduce tension and alleviate or cure many other everyday complaints.

Sūkṣma Marma® Therapy (SMT)
Sūkṣma Marma Therapy is a very subtle and delicate treatment of the classical marma points and energy channels (meridians, nāḍis) of human physiology, which requires āyurvedic skills, modern medical knowledge, talent, sensitivity, smart hands and proper training. Marma therapy is also aromatherapy because we use specially created marma oils.
SMT® is a treatment for all the senses, for all the organs, for the whole physiology; for mind, body and soul. It is a completely natural and holistic approach. It is the art of transcendental touch which creates moments of silence and allows our nature, the innermost creative intelligence, to restore, recreate and regenerate our mind-body system.
Sūkṣma Marma® Therapy was developed on the basis of traditional Vedic knowledge and classical Ayurvedic texts as well as many years of study and research, supplemented by practical and clinical experience and oral Marma traditions.
It does not include any pressure on the points, just attention alone or a very subtle touch will enliven the inner intelligence located in the marmas giving immediate and extraordinary rebalancing, rejuvenating and healing effects.

Even a single treatment can make a great difference and give relief, but in our experience we suggest a minimum of 5 treatments in a row or once a week.
