The Amma Therapy technique is similar to other styles of bodywork/massage in that it is a fully hands-on treatment. The hand techniques used in Amma Therapy involve a rhythmic, circular pressure applied with the thumbs, fingers, or hands. This rhythmic motion helps to move the body's Qi. The other main element of the Amma technique is acupoint stimulation. Amma Therapy uses the same theories and point system as acupuncture, but no needles are used. Instead of using needles the Amma Therapist will apply pressure to points with the fingers. Point stimulation also accesses and addresses the Qi of the body. The word Qi can be translated as "life-force", and has much clinical relevance in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). In terms of TCM, Qi can be thought of as the driving force behind all function and physiological process.
