Like acupuncture points, Ayurveda‘s marma points are special sites around the body that can be manipulated and stimulated to direct prana (life energy) and promote well-being. Even with the increasing popularity of Ayurveda in the West, not many books have examined marma in great detail—until now. Ayurveda and Marma Therapy describes the 107 main marma points in terms of location, properties, and uses. This comprehensive volume is not light reading, but for serious students and aspiring Ayurvedic practitioners, it will prove indispensable.
