Marma Shastra
Marma Shastra is an ancient art of healing before Ayurvedic time. Maha Rishi Agasthya described 108 energy amplification points in the human body which are directly connected to the chakra system to facilitate the circulation of vital force energy all over the body. These points are known as Marma points. These points direct and control Prana to the functional level of the body.
Marma Shastra shows us how to balance this energy in Chakras and the circulatory system via the Marma points. It also shows us how to get the body and mind in balance. Any disease can be cured accurately by knowing the affected Marma Points.
Our finger tips which are used to point the way, discharge a great deal of energy. In Marma Shastra, finger tips are used to channel energy from the chakra system through the Marma points. There are many miracles related to the sensation of touching, and the transference of energy through the fingertips from one man to another.

The word 'marma' was used for the first time in Atharva Veda (ancient Indian scripture). During the Vedic period of India, this martial art was known to kings and warriors and was used in battlefields. It is said that marmas are constituted of six vital elementssoma (sleshma, phlegm), marutha (vata, air), teja (pitta, bile) and the three mental types: rajas, tamas and satva. Marma adi is the science of manipulating marmas or vital points. These are nerve junctures usually close to the skin surface. According to Susruta, author of Susruta Samhita, the ancient treatise on ayurveda, human body contains 107 marma points which, when struck or massaged, produce desired healing or injurious results. Like acupressure, marma adi functions by pressing these points through which the prana (chi in Chinese) flows.
