Massage Therapy

  • Massage is defined as the systematic manual or mechanical manipulation of the soft tissues of the body by such movements as rubbing, kneading, pressing, rolling, slapping and tapping for therapeutic purposes such as promoting circulation of the blood and lymph, relaxation of muscles, relief from pain, restoration of metabolic balance, adhesion removal, fibrosis alleviation, respiratory drainage, stress reduction and other benefits, both physical and mental.
  • AMMA Therapy is a highly refined and complex system of bodywork Therapy. AMMA utilizes techniques and treatment strategies that combine the use of traditional Oriental medical practices for assessing and evaluating general imbalances in the energetic system and a western approach to organ dysfunctions. AMMA Therapy restores, promotes and maintains optimum health through the treatment of the physical body, the bio-energy and the emotions, which reflect and are bound into the neuromuscular system. As a result, AMMA Therapy also indirectly frees the mind and thus over time, the spirit.
  • European Therapeutic Massage Therapy with the use of oils or cream utilizes the basic strokes of effleurage, friction, vibration, tapotment and nerve stroking.
