Background: Marmas1 are the most sensitive & vital areas in our body. which, if injured lead to pain, deformity & even death occurs immediately or sometimes later. Sushruta samhita gives detail description of marmas, mainly in the chapter-six  of Sharirsthana, Pratyeka Marma Nirdesh Sharir. Acharya Sushruta, has mentioned one hundred & seven marmas  in our body, which further divided into five classes depending upon their structure, such as mamsa, sira, snayu, asthi and sandhi marma. There are 27 Snayu Marmas.  Amsa2 marma is one among them. The shoulder joint is most mobile joint in the body  The shoulder injuries like rotator cuff tear, Frozen shoulder, dislocation of shoulder etc are common now a days. For example, the group of muscles and tendons in the shoulder is known as the rotator3 or musculotendinous cuff.
