Pain is the most common problem in today's busy and exhausting life, and it is one of the grievous problems present throughout the globe because of its high prevalence and fifth vital sign. Fast-acting and quick relief is the preferred way in today's hectic schedule, even though these relief agents such as analgesics and anti-inflammatory drugs have adverse effects on the human body. Ayurveda pain management comprises pharmacological and nonpharmacological approaches such as Marma Chikitsa, Yoga, and meditation which help in releasing the pain effects without any adverse effects on the body. Marma is combined with an ability to perceive and direct the flow of Prana; Marma Chikitsa becomes a powerful tool in influencing the healing of almost every known ill condition like pain. In this review, the scientific potential of Marma therapy as a nonpharmacological intervention in pain management will be analyzed.
