Marma treatment encompasses healing, massage and physical flexibity and is available in Kerala only. One can learn this art in two to three years. Though this ancient art is gradually finding its way back into the mainstream of life, it has retained its exclusivity through a strong guru-disciple tradition. However, post independence, Government of India constituted Udupa committee for the development of Ayurveda and that committee gave its recommendation for the popularisation of this therapy amongst all Ayurveda physicians in the country. Central council of Indian medicine is now promoting this specialised discipline and offering postgraduate Master of Science, M.S. (Ay) degree in certain institutions.
