The effective yet gentle 'Sukshma' technique, for working with the Marma points at the emotional as well as on the physical level, is fully described in this book. Marma Therapy - the art of treating specific vital points on the human body - is one of the greatest healing secrets of Ayurveda. It can be used to detoxify, strengthen and revitalize the body, for rejuvenation and relaxation or to release blocked energy. The authors explain the theoretical basis of Marma Therapy, and then provide a detailed, fully illustrated guide to its use.
For each Marma point, the authors provide information about its significance, the Ayurvedic element it relates to, the most appropriate oils to use, and what it can be used to treat. Clear step-by-step instructions and photographs illustrate the techniques, and advice is also included for self-treatment. The authors explain how to strengthen the Marmas through yoga and use mudras to support and complement Marma treatment. Finally, they describe how to treat common physical and emotional conditions, from headache and back pain, to exam nerves and insomnia.

I had a neural lesion on my face with no sensation in the right side for about 30 years. I was invited to participate in a workshop session and the result was the restoration of sensation in my face. I knew then that this is one of the most powerful tools that we in the health sector can give to ourselves and our patients - an efficient, clean and gentle treatment method. In 30 years as a medical doctor, I never saw anything like this. Thanks Ernst. -- Guilherme Oberlaender M.D., Brazil
