Kalari Marma Treatment

      Kalari Marma chikitsa (Marma Healing) was known as the backbone of Kalari during the gothra culture of India. The Masters used to transfer the secrets of Kalari-Marma to the students only after the completion of Kalaripayattu. Our existing Ayurveda treatment was emerged from kalari-marma. To acquire the knowledge of kalari-Marma, mental ability and physical strength have to be very high and a lot of aggressive hard work is needed. It is because of that nowadays the people who practice Kalarimarma are very less. The kalari masters used to achieve extreme knowledge about psycho-physiological aspects and practical knowledge of the body's vital spots named 'Marmas'. This provides them extraordinary control over their body and also the ways to control the energy levels and maintenance of marma spots of patients. The Kalari Masters usually prescribe the treatment by checking nerves and various factors. The medicines prescribed may vary from patient to patient as there are a lot of differences in their conditions. That is why chances to fail Kalari-Marma treatment is very less. At the same time, in several modern treatment systems a lot of wealth and time have to be utilized even in diagnosis process and sometimes the treatment procedures continues till the end of patients life. Mostly a lot of chemicals have to be consumed in the form of medicines in these treatment systems and the continuous use of these medicines in the human body may cause severe damages even to internal organs and cause death. People who are unaware of these systems will get easily trapped and may become patients forever.There is no such issue related to Kalari marma treatment.  During the diagnosis procedures of disease itself the master will also identify the reason behind the disease or health issues that the patient facing with and will prescribe treatment procedures along with medications and 'pathya' - specific things or items which must be strictly avoided by patients related to their diet or life style. As a result, the person undergoes this treatment cure completely and regains health. There are also a lot of therapies practiced in Kalarimarma which helps to rejuvenate each and every cells of human body and maintain ever youthfulness. As per the science of kalari marma, the major marma points of human anatomy which are sources of vital energy must be given primary importance while providing treatments, thus its name itself is Kalarimarma Treatment. After completing 12 years training in Kalari under Kalari Masters, the students will apply the treatments on patients. This vast experience also plays an important role in the effectiveness of Kalarimarma treatment. That was why the Kalari marma Masters used to become the Savior, for a lot of people who failed in other treatment systems. It is almost impossible to learn Kalarimarma without practicing Kalaripayattu. A person without Kalaripayattu practice will not be able to apply the principles of Kalari marma treatment holistically.
