What is Amma therapy?
The cliff notes are that Amma therapy is Chinese Medicine meridian work that is manual work where the treatment is done with the therapists hands and not with needles.
Amma, the oldest Chinese word used to described massage is a form of bodywork rooted in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). Amma offers the therapeutic benefit of massage with the ancient knowledge of TCM. Amma combines deep, therapeutic pressure with acu-point manipulation to access and address imbalance in the body’s energetic system according to Chinese medical theory.
Like acupuncture, Amma Therapy focuses on the movement and balance of Qi (energy) in the body. Amma Therapy is a form of wholistic treatment; assessments and treatment plans address the whole mind-body complex. Amma has been used to help manage a wide range of both acute and chronic conditions including body pain, headaches, digestive disturbances, menstrual imbalance, anxiety, and insomnia.
