Amma massage is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine Principal Amma mean push and pull, due to hand manipulation causing the rocking effect. The massage and pressing strategic acupressure points to ‘open’ meridian channels – the paths through which life energy flows freely throughout the body, through all tissues and organs, thus providing a smoother and more free-flowing Qi (life force). Affecting tissues up to four inches deep from the external skin. Having a dramatic detoxifying effect on the skin and circulatory system. By increasing the flow of blood and plasma through the veins and arteries, cupping enhances the cleansing and removal of toxins. This detoxification may not be observable after just one treatment, but after three to five treatments, there will be a noticeable improvement in the color of one’s complexion. *Includes complimentary Journey to Zen.
