Abstract: Varmam is the life energy which fulfils the medical needs of humanity. Life energy circulates inside human body. Varmam is a precious heritage of mankind. The dwelling or resting places of the life energy are called varmam points. The varmam energy (vital life energy) flows through 12 naadis (vital energy channels) and chakras (nerve plexus) and is carried by dasa vaayu (vital energy force). When we stimulate the varmam points with appropriate pressure (Maathirai), it produces clear therapeutic effect. The disturbed vital life energy flow gets regulated through proper varmam stimulation. This paper focuses on the varmam therapy for headache which is most commonly encountered in this decade.
