This course teaches how to apply marmatherapy, information which has been kept somewhat secret (vital point therapy) and which is only now beginning to be spread in the West.

The student will learn how to:

  • locate and measure the marmas;
  • identify the anatomical structures that are affected by each marma;
  • identify what controls each marma and how to treat them individually and in groups to treat the systems (srotas):
    respiratory; digestive; metabolic; lymphatic; circulatory; adipose; muscular; skeletal; nervous; reproductive; urinary; excretory; menstrual; lactation; mind.
  • treat the seven tissues (sapta dhatus);
  • treat the doshas and sub-doshas;
  • treat the chakras and specific needy areas.

The methods: cauterization (kshara karma), acupuncture (suchi karma) and bleeding (sira vedha) are also covered.


According to the need in question, the marmatherapist uses a variety of techniques, which will be taught during the training, to treat the marmas in question, namely:

  • Yogatherapy (asanas);
  • Marma massage (mardana);
  • Mantras for the treatment of marmas (mantra chikitsa);
  • Yantras (yantra chikitsa);
  • Use of crystals to treat marmas (mani chikitsa);
  • Application of herbal pastes (lepa chikitsa);
