Marma points are vital life points and are located where the flesh, veins, arteries, tendons, bones, and joints meet on the human body. They are also the junctions for Vata, Pita, Kapha to meet with the subtle energies of Sattva, Raja, and Tammas (the basic components of life). This is how each and every one of us differs! They are reflected in each and every part of the life and in the universe too. Every object of the universe comprises these three elements in varied ratio whether those are five basic elements like earth, water, fire, air and ether or foods, and vegetables. The whole cosmos is under the impression of the three elements or “Triguna” except the God. God is “Trigunateet” or beyond the Sattva, Raja, and Tama.
When imbalances take hold in the body, Marma points become sore. Working with the Marmas will disperse the stagnate energy pattern. So truly working with Thai acupoints and marma points on the body are affecting from physical to the subtle of you, as well as how you are connected to the Universe. The major marma points correspond to major chakras (energy centers). The Minor Marma points are found around the torso and limbs. There is a basic connection between the marma points and the planets and stars. Everything is interconnected!
