Amma Therapy

Amma therapy is a complex system of bodywork that focuses on the balance and movement of energy within the body.  Amma literally means push/pull and includes manipulation, massage and acupressure along the major meridian channels of Traditional Chinese Medicine.  The techniques of Amma Therapy aim to remove blockages and free the flow of energy in the body, thereby restoring, promoting and maintaining optimal health.  It is more than just a physical treatment as each meridian channel holds emotional energy.  For example, the lung channel tends to hold onto grief, the kidney channel holds onto fear, the liver channel holds anger, the heart channel holds nervous energy and the gall bladder channel holds frustration and/or deep resentment.  Mobilizing the energy in these channels can help relieve deeply held emotional energy.  Thus, Amma therapy is a powerful mind/body treatment.
