Marma is an ancient and powerful touch-based healing modality. In this introductory course, you’ll learn the vital energy points in the body and how they can be effectively stimulated for better energy flow, or Prana. Increasing Prana can benefit physical, emotional and mental health, including positive shifts such as stress reduction, better sleep, enhanced energy levels and improved mood. Marma can be performed at home as part of a self-care ritual and incorporated into a holistic healing practice.

Discover the original root knowledge of vital point healing. Marma Therapy is a sacred knowledge practiced for thousands of years and documented in the Vedic texts of ancient India. Marma Therapy was used and perfected by the Kalari warriors, whose profound knowledge inspired newer lineages of martial arts and healing arts throughout East Asia. This root Vedic knowledge is what we teach in Kerala Ayurveda’s training.
Marma refers to the vital energetic points of the body where both deep healing and trauma can occur. This course will provide a comprehensive education on what and where these points are located.
Marma Therapy has myriad benefits for general health addressing all aspects of the self – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. This training will prepare you with realistic expectations for the practice as well as how to maximize the benefits.
Marma Therapy is not as widely known as its spinoff touch therapies because its power was respected – the power to both heal and potentially harm, depending on how it is used. It’s important that all students of Marma Therapy understand its best practices and safety precautions.
A large portion of this training will cover concepts for Marma Therapy and hands-on practice performing Marma for the face and neck; hands, feet and legs; head; chest and abdomen.
