What is Amma? Amma Therapy is a Korean lineage with roots in Chinese medicine. It uses the same theories that acupuncturists use to create balance and move Qi (energy) in the body through accessing acu-points and meridians. Amma is an effective therapeutic approach for general well-being and can treat a wide range of diseases. Examples of conditions that may be addressed include:
Neurological and muscular disorders
What to Expect from an Amma Treatment During a treatment,one can expect to receive tongue and pulse diagnosis and specialized bodywork that uses deep, therapeutic pressure, and acu-point stimulation. An Amma session may also include Chinese Medicine therapies such as moxibusion, Gua sha, cupping and herbal liniments and oils. Each person receives tailored recommendations based on their individual needs. This may include nutrition, lifestyle, self-care, herbs or supplementation.
If you are looking for a gentle approach to health that empowers you to regain balance in your life, Amma Therapy is for you. Amma Therapy is an ancient healing art that reaches back thousands of years and has stood the test of time.
I invite you to experience the process of healing.
In health and relaxation,
