Does Amma Therapy hurt?
No, it does not hurt. Sometimes the feeling of having an acupoint stimulated creates an intense sensation of pulsing energy, but it does not cause pain.
How long does it take to get results?
Clients often feel results immediately during and after a treatment. For chronic health conditions that a client has been suffering from for several years, it may take weeks to months to fix the underlying causes of their symptoms. In these cases, the Amma Therapy practitioner may need to access and move deep physical, emotional and spiritual blockages.
Why should I see you over an acupuncturist / other health expert?
Amma Therapy is very complementary to other modalities such as acupuncture, chiropractic, Swedish massage, naturopathy, etc. Each modality has its specific elements that make it more suitable for some situations, conditions or clients over others.
Some common reasons clients choose Amma Therapy:
- You want similar benefits as acupuncture but do not like needles
- You are interested in a nourishing full-body treatment
- You’d prefer your practitioner to be with you for the full treatment
- Amma Therapy’s emphasis on self-care, lifestyle and nutrition recommendations is inspiring and empowers you to take care of yourself in a way that creates a lasting transformation of you health and wellbeing.
What can I expect when I start this process?
Your first visit will be a 90-minutes and will include a full intake discussion. You may choose to first do a free holistic health assessment prior to coming in for a treatment If so,you’ll come into my office for a private health screening where I will get a thorough sense of your current health challenges to determine how I can help. I’ll share some diagnostic information that will help clarify why I believe you have the struggles you do, and I’ll lay out a care plan that will offer you the most ideal level of transformation and support. We’ll reassess that plan after a few weeks and decide if any change of course is necessary. Most clients start by coming in once a week for 5 weeks.
Is it expensive / what if I can’t afford it
If you take a step back and look at the big picture, you’ll see that the cost of staying stuck is far greater than the cost of care. This is similar to the concept of an “opportunity cost” in economics. Your decision not to spend money on self-care often causes much greater costs in terms of your quality of life and mental well-being. These are powerful contributors to your future income earning potential. They significantly increase satisfaction in your relationships, work life and overall happiness.
Why choose Amma Therapy over western medical approaches?
It is all natural, painless, risk-free and side effect free. It treats the root causes for you chronic health issues rather than just putting a bandage on your symptoms. Western medicine excels at providing major life-saving surgeries and drugs. Amma Therapy is a better choice for more long-standing chronic health issues like pain, stress, anxiety, sleep, digestion, irregular menstruation, etc. People absolutely love Amma Therapy.
