Ayurveda & Importance of Marma Points 

Ayurveda, a natural system of medicine, originated in India more than 3,000 years ago. The term Ayurveda is derived from the Sanskrit words ayur (life) and veda (science or knowledge). Ayurveda has eight branches of Medicine .One of the worlds first surgeons comes from an Ayurveda Physician known as Sushruta who has written a book called Sushruta Samhita which is the oldest book of Surgery dates back around 1500 bce. 

But there is Another ancient form of medicine called Siddha medicine which is written in Tamil . Both Ayurveda & Siddha Medicine are popular medicines in india.

The concepts of universal interconnectedness, the body's constitution (prakriti), and life forces (doshas) are the primary basis of ayurvedic medicine. Goals of treatment aid the person by eliminating impurities, reducing symptoms, increasing resistance to disease, reducing worry, and increasing harmony in life. Herbs and other plants, including oils and common spices, are used extensively in Ayurvedic treatment. 

In India, Ayurveda is considered a form of medical care, equal to conventional Western medicine, traditional Chinese medicine, naturopathic medicine, and homoeopathic medicine. Practitioners of Ayurveda in India undergo state-recognized, institutionalized training. 

Marmas are also called Varmas in Tamil Siddha medicine in south India . Other Indian martial arts like vajramushti (iron fist), malyutham (Indian wrestling) were practised in ancient times. During one instance, Duryodhana in Mahabharata was killed by Bheema through the attack on specific marma points in his groins and thighs. In Ramayana, Ravana was killed by Rama by an arrow shot in his naval.

Major marma points correspond to the seven chakras, or energy centres of the body, while minor points radiate out along the torso and limbs. These points range in size from one to six inches in diameter. The points were mapped out in detail centuries ago in the ‘ Sushruta Samhita ’, a classic Ayurvedic text.Marma points, when gently pressed on the skin can stimulate a chain of positive events.

Ayurveda Skin Care & Beauty 

According to Ayurvedic principles, the condition of the skin is believed to reflect an individual's overall state of health. The evaluation of the skin's characteristics is employed to analyse the doshas, as well as the organs and conditions associated with the five components. There is a prevailing belief that underlying physiological issues can manifest externally via the skin.
According to Ayurvedic teachings, the skin is seen as the cream of the blood that ascends to the surface, since it is perceived as a manifestation of the overall well-being of the blood. According to Ayurvedic principles, the blood undergoes interactions with all bodily systems, implying that any dysfunction within a particular system might potentially lead to a decline in the quality of the blood. Consequently, skin conditions may manifest due to an imbalance in any bodily tissue.


Skin disorders, often known as dermatological conditions, refer to a wide range of medical conditions that affect the integumentary system.
Given Ayurveda's perspective that skin ailments are indicative of internal imbalances, practitioners of this traditional medicine system typically prioritise addressing the root cause while managing dermatological conditions. This include the use of herbal medicines, such as teas or tinctures, as well as modifications to one's diet and lifestyle. Topical skincare interventions are furthermore employed for the purpose of symptom management, and are regarded as a vital component of the therapeutic approach.
The primary factors contributing to imbalances that result in skin troubles include the presence of Ama, which is often regarded as the predominant cause of such diseases. The accumulation of these poisons in the bloodstream subsequently facilitates their translocation to the dermal layer. The presence of these toxins has the potential to induce adverse effects on the skin, such as the development of acne, inflammation, puffiness, and a lacklustre complexion.
Insufficient blood perfusion can lead to poor circulation, resulting in a dull appearance of the skin.
Poor digestion is a contributing factor to the production of ama, a toxic substance that contaminates the bloodstream.
The lifestyle of an individual might contribute to the development of ama. According to Ayurvedic principles, inadequate sleep is believed to be a contributing factor to the development of skin disorders. Ayurvedic teachings suggest that an erratic daily schedule might disrupt liver function, hence resulting in imbalances that manifest as skin issues.

The Advantages of Ayurvedic Skincare
The Ayurvedic tradition promotes a comprehensive approach to skincare, emphasising the need of addressing skin health holistically, encompassing both internal and external factors. In this course, the primary emphasis will be on topical treatments. However, it is also possible to use Ayurvedic approaches that target the root causes of skin issues. Module nine will include instruction on the management of many prevalent skin disorders.
Ayurvedic practitioners employ the utilisation of therapeutic and calming botanical substances in order to maintain the health of the skin during periods of irritation or imbalance. The term "tvachya" pertains to the therapeutic and nurturing properties exhibited by several plant species, including roses, silk cotton trees, and got kola. These plants possess the ability to promote skin health and hence improve its overall aesthetic appeal.

The anti-inflammatory components, known as shothahara, constitute a significant assortment of therapeutic constituents in Ayurvedic skincare. The use of herbs in this specific activity has the potential to mitigate skin redness, so offering a valuable attribute for those with sensitive skin when incorporated into various skincare products. The anti-inflammatory effect is a crucial therapeutic approach for managing skin disorders characterised by heat, itchiness, and inflammation, such as eczema and acne. This action is observed in several botanical sources, including aloe vera, frankincense, rose petals, and silk cotton plants.

The Ayurvedic method, known for its holistic nature, has long emphasised the utilisation of herbal therapies and natural substances for enhancing skin aesthetics, as supported by substantial data spanning millennia. The profound knowledge of Ayurvedic components for anti-ageing and beautification has garnered significant interest from prominent cosmetics corporations, and individuals can also use these practises inside their own homes.
Vayasthapana denotes a skin-related activity aimed at counteracting the effects of ageing. Ayurvedic practitioners have observed a notable potency of this activity in the herbs Centella Asiatica (Gotu Kola) and Phyllanthus emblica (Amalaki). Cinnamon, a botanical ingredient utilised in Ayurvedic practises, possesses anti-ageing properties that benefit the skin. The term "varnva" refers to the phenomenon of youthful brightness, which is observed in several plant species such as vetiver, sandalwood, Indian sarsaparilla, and Indian madder.

The practise of Ayurvedic skincare involves the use of potent natural components that possess the ability to not only provide nourishment and healing to the skin, but also to maintain its youthful and healthy appearance over an extended period of time. A prevalent motif in Ayurvedic skincare, as observed throughout this course, pertains to the utilisation of carrier oils. In Western societies, there has been a historical tendency to refrain from including carrier oils into skincare regimens due to the prevailing belief that these oils possess excessive weight and have the potential to obstruct the skin's pores. Fortunately, there is already a widespread acceptance in Western societies of the practise of using oils for cleaning purposes, as well as recognising the nourishing properties of carrier oils. This growing awareness stems from individuals discovering the remarkable efficacy of these uncomplicated components in effectively eliminating facial impurities and bestowing therapeutic benefits onto the skin.
