Kalari Marma massage is an ancient healing technique that originated in Kerala, India. It is a form of traditional Indian martial arts and is also used for therapeutic purposes. The massage targets specific points in the body known as marmas, which are considered vital energy centers that influence physical, emotional, and mental well-being.
