Hands on sessions.
Update May 10, 2021
Hands On Amma beginning in June
That’s my plan! I am vaccinated and it is looking like it’s safe to start treating in person again. Woot! I will start opening up treatments for likewise safe and vax’d clients. I am looking for a new therapy space and setting up my processes for safe treatment.
Online booking for in person is not yet available. At this time I will not take new in person clients. I will keep you posted and start reaching out as soon as I can. Crossing our fingers.
Amma therapy is a classical Asian bodywork style that predates acupuncture. Amma, literally push-pull, is one of the oldest known Chinese words to describe bodywork. Highly specialized, Amma therapy combines deep rhythmic, circular digital pressure and acupressure point stimulation with Asian medical principles for accessing and treating imbalances in the energy system. Amma therapy, like acupuncture and other Asian bodywork forms, focuses on the balance and movement of Qi (energy) within the body. Whereas the acupuncturist inserts needles into the energy pathways to stimulate and move the energy, the Amma practitioner relies primarily on the sensitivity and strength of the hands to manipulate the client’s Qi. Amma therapy techniques include both deep-tissue manipulation, that is used in other forms of therapeutic massage, and the stimulation of Qi movement that is the basis of Asian medicine. Amma therapy is highly adaptable to the client’s needs. For example, a client with fibromyalgia or cancer may need a very gentle treatment compared to the depth and vigor of treatment that an athlete can handle. We have to meet each client where they are at and then work to reach or maintain health. Some practitioners specialize and work with only certain clients, however, Amma can be used for all ages and all stages of health. All Amma therapy session include nutritional recommendations. Gua sha and fire cupping are adjunct therapies that can be included in Amma sessions or requested as a separate session. Read more on Amma.
I treat a maximum of 16 clients a week – generally, only treating 4 clients a day. I generally book out 2-3 weeks in advance. I request that you book either on the hour or half hour so that I keep as many appointments available for self booking as possible. Thank you.
When I return to treating clients, I will be in a new location. I’ll keep you posted.
