Amma Oriental Massage in Arlington, Arizona
Amma is sometimes referred to as the ancestor of the Asian touch therapies, due to the very inclusive techniques used in its practice. Amma actually means “massage” in the Japanese culture, where it originated. It was historically used as a method for diagnosing illness and infirmities. An Amma Oriental Massage practitioner uses not only the hands, but elbows, forearms, knees and sometimes feet to move the body and diagnose the condition.
The intention of Amma Oriental Massage therapy is to identify and remove any energy blocks in the body, restoring optimal health. Amma Massage may incorporate other modalities and techniques in diagnosing and treating the patient.
