                                 Dr.Bhat.A.Rangaprasad -Sarve janah Sukhino Bhavanthu || Sarve santhu Niramayah ||

The Kakshadhara marma is one of the interesting and value added marma, used in clearing the blockage of energy channel, in clinical conditions like Hemiplegia, Shoulder subluxation, Frozen shoulder, Arthritis involving the shoulder, Tennis elbow, Brachialgia etc., to name a few.
The manipulation of this marma point is quite a tricky one and sometimes requires the simultaneous assistance of other marmas like krukatika or other points like supraclavicular or mid-scapular, to ease the local stiffness & pain.
The following power point explains the anatomical considerations of the Kakshadhar marma

Yes Dr.Shanti garu,
the miraculous relief given by manipulating the Kaxadhara in conditions of stiffness around the Claviculo-scapular area, cannot be explained with simple words. It will be an ecstatic moment for the patient, when relived of the stiffness.
Thanks for your valuable input.
Warm regards.

@ Physiotherapist,
Thanks for your interest shown in the marmas.
The selection of marmas are not universal in all cases and many a times is tailor suited depending up on the presence of the symptoms expressed by the clients and the signs exhibited in the regions of marmas.
But, any way considering your interest, I will suggest the following marmas - Kakhsdhara,Bahvi,Indravasti & Thalahrdaya.
In case your patient is diabetes, the result will be a little bit slow.
