We call this ‘Turbo-charged’ massage. The client is actually active during most of their massage session, rather than passive as they are in a traditional massage.
Being Active brings faster relief from tight, sore muscles, and provides deeper relaxation.
This is the clinical approach of AMT, with much more manual and movement therapy to help people with pain, dysfunction, injuries and the need for myofascial recovery.
It is not massage, not physical therapy and not exercise; however it does use techniques from all of them plus a variety of other disciplines.
They are both non-surgical, non-invasive and not illegal or immoral!
We believe AMT and AMM are the most effective therapies of choice when someone has a simple, basic muscle pain to severe soft-tissue pain & dysfunction!
AMT™ was developed by Irene Diamond, RT, an exercise and movement therapist and neuromuscular re-educator as a result of a spinal cord accident she had at age 15. She was completely paralyzed initially but eventually went on to regain full movement.
After completing her degree in Recreation, Rehabilitation & Movement Therapy, she used herself and clients as the first guinea pigs. Over the years, she fine tuned the work and is now seeing a select number of clients in San Francisco, California, USA; and teaching the AMT ~ The Diamond Method to therapists in seminars and workshops around the world.
As a nurse, Joi knows her body and therapy.
She received instant relief for her neck and back pain sustained in a car accident.
The Diamond Method™ utilizes an exclusive, unique combination of Myofascial Therapy, Trigger Point & Neuromuscular Re-Education, along with Ergonomic Education and Postural Re-Training.
Featuring 2009 World record holder, Mick Dawson from England, a day after he broke the record, rowing a small 2-man boat from Japan to San Francisco. (It took Mick over 6 months of straight rowing. "Do ya think his back was a little sore?")
