In the ancient health tradition of Ayurveda there was a more direct way to influence Prana for health. This was Marma treatments. Marmas are 108 points all over the body where the Prana is especially lively, creating and organising the surrounding structures and functions.
There are very subtle treatments that work on these points using aroma oils and very gentle touch. This is called Sukshma Marma. Through gentle touch, the flow of prana is enhanced and made coherent. The consequence of that is to remove blocks, encourage healing and revitalise
