The word Amma, which means "push-pull" in Chinese, was applied to a
form of Oriental massage dating back five thousand years to the period
of the Yellow Emperor. Founded and developed by Korean-born Tina Sohn,
Amma Therapy is a highly refined and complex system of bodywork whose
techniques and treatment strategies combine the use of traditional
Oriental medical principles and a Western approach to organ dysfunction.
It utilizes a variety of techniques, sometimes paralleling those found
in major forms of therapeutic massage, as well as powerful new points
discovered by Tina Sohn.
