Marmas - Indian Reflexology
the marmas are pressure points of the body, like in shiatsu or reflexology.
Marmas should be understood as junction or meeting places of the 5 organic principles : ligaments, vessels, muscles, bones and joints, with the four types of vessels being the nerves, lymph, arteries and veins.
