Amma Therapy includes the manipulation of the tendon muscle channels with palpation of the acupuncture points for balancing and stimulating the energy of the point for better health. An integrative form of massage therapy, Amma combines Oriental Medical principles focusing on the balance and flow of energy, with a Western approach for assessing organ dysfunction. Like Acupuncture, the focus is on the balance and movement of energy within the body. The AMMA Therapist relies primarily on the sensitivity and strength of the hands to manipulate the life energy. AMMA Therapy techniques include both deep tissue massage that is used in other forms of therapeutic massage, and the stimulation of energy movement that is the basis of Chinese Medicine.
Swedish Massage was developed in the 1700's in Sweden, it has long been thought of as the first organized and systematic method of modern massage therapy in the west. The specific strokes and manipulations of Swedish massage are each conceived as having definite therapeutic benefits. The goal of Swedish massage is to return oxygen and remove and toxins from the extremities. Swedish massage shortens recovery time from muscular strain by flushing the tissues of lactic acid, uric acid, and other metabolic wastes. It increases circulation without increasing heart load. It stretches the ligaments and tendons keeping them supple and pliable. Swedish Massage also stimulates the skin and nervous system and soothes the nerves themselves at the same time. It reduces stress, both emotional and physical, and is suggested in a regular program for stress management. It also has many specific medical uses.
Massage focuses on the manipulation of the body's soft tissue
to promote a balanced state of health. Specific strokes such as effleurage,
petrissage, friction and stretching are taught by some of the finest Western
bodywork instructors in the field of complementary medicine.
