Varmam Thokkanam is the Siddha way of touch therapy ( An applied system procedure or therapeutic massage ). It is the physical manipulation of the body usually done with or with out oil application and It is very effective for neurological and musculoskeletal problems. It also promotes mental and physical wellness
Varmam is a subtle energy that enables the functioning of whole body, mind and soul. The places where this energy resides and help to activate both body and life is called Varmam points.
These points are the reservoirs of pranic energy and it is distributed throughout the body at 108 locations. When the flow of pranic energy is affected by imbalance of three humours i.e Vata, Pitta and Kapha or due to injury, stress, strain, abnormal physical activity, abnormal food habits etc it disturbs the metabolic and physiological activity of the organ or region concerned and this ultimately results in disease and pain.
