AMMA Therapy® is a highly refined and complex system of healing which is centered around an ancient form of massage therapy and is based on 5,000 year old principles of Chinese Medicine. AMMA Therapy® promotes the circulation of Vital Qi (pronounced "chee") in the body. AMMA Therapy® addresses physical imbalance as well as emotional imbalance and seeks to unite body and mind. As such, an AMMA Therapy® session will always consider the relationship between body, mind, and spirit.
In this session, meridians and acupressure points are stimulated in a very specific pattern, restoring and revitalizing the body's life force. AMMA Therapy® is similar to acupuncture, but does not use needles. While it is often used with adults, it is also an ideal treatment for infants and children.
AMMA Therapy® is a soothing and highly effective form of bodywork that targets physical conditions such as sinus pain, asthma, digestive problems, PMS, menopausal symptoms, headaches, and neck and back pain. It is also beneficial for those suffering from anxiety and depression and is the perfect compliment to your acupuncture session.
This ancient system of holistic healing also examines the client's dietary habits and how these choices affect the quality of the Qi. In Chinese Medicine, food is said to be the first medicine, and so with AMMA Therapy® dietary recommendations based on Chinese medical theory may be made. Gentle and restorative exercises like Qi Gong and Tai Chi as well as meditation may also be recommended.
