Kshipra marma (क्षिप्र मर्म): Remote control to release stress


Do you think the appellation “MAN” is right for the human beings……….??? I think no, absolutely not. For me the most minded, intuitive, visionary, skillful, creative, persuasive, responsible, courageous and egalitarian species in the world must be awarded with the moniker “MACHINE”. Yes, that's true because we don’t have any time to interact with our dear ones, no time to lend a helping hand to others, no spare time to hang out with our friends…! We had made our life hectic and we let our work nagging us. Always say we are busy busy busy busy…….and this word really make us busy. All these things makes us frail and ailing. In ayurveda there are some therapies especially marma therapy that not only makes us physically fit but also mentally. Kshipra marma is one the cardinal marma of marma therapy that relieves stress, tension and ailments from our life and thus makes us healthy. So don’t push yourself over the edge otherwise you will break like a rubber band so commence this cure right now….!!!
