(In the video I say “5-days” — but now the training is 13 hours virtual training prior to attending the 3 days in-person training. )
Watch Allison’s short video testimonial where she shares how I was able to give her the relief she needed, and in only ONE WEEK!
(You will be able to get these results for your clients and patients too!)
My name is Irene Diamond, and I developed Active Myofascial Therapy ~ The Diamond Method to be a fast, effective, easy-on-your-body technique.
Are You Looking for a Method To Get Brilliant Clinical Results?
I invite you to study AMT with me so you too can experience the same level of satisfaction in your clinic as the other certified AMT therapists and I experience every day.
I Was Completely Paralyzed:
AMT™ was developed by me as a result of actually breaking my neck.
Yep – I was doing a form of gymnastics called Acro-sports when I was 15 years old, and I was standing on my partner’s shoulders and our timing was off. (To say the least!) I fell to the floor landing directly on my head. Luckily my partner was an anesthesiologist and immediately suspected I had suffered a spinal cord injury. He did “all the right things” to prevent my injury from getting worse. I was completely paralyzed initially, but luckily, after 2 months (flat on my back) in the hospital in a halo traction and then spinal surgery, I eventually went on to regain full movement.
I love being a pain relief therapist and also enjoy mentoring other therapists on running their clinical practice.
After earning my degree in Rehab, Recreation and Movement Therapy, I used myself and my clients as the first “guinea pigs” to learn the affects of applying AMT to other people for various musculo-skeletal conditions. Over the years, I fine-tuned the AMT work and now I am happy to provide Active Myofascial Therapy in my San Francisco Wellness Center as well as teach AMT workshops and seminars around the nation.
Can You Relate?
I saw skilled practitioners not able to get enough clients and barely making enough money to survive. I saw practitioners who did have a full book of clients, end their long days with their bodies aching because they were actually hurting THEIR own bodies while trying to help their client’s bodies. Something is very wrong about the fact that we as care givers, are actually damaging ourselves!
Before I started applying AMT into my practice, I recognized that I used to be exhausted like that too —
My story is a little different from most, because getting clients actually came really easy for me, but because I had a jam-packed schedule of 6-8 deep-tissue / sports massage clients a day, I would be totally exhausted and physically spent at the end of my day. Every night I came home so pooped I would literally stand at the bottom and look up the 3 flights of stairs to my San Francisco walk-up apartment and wonder how in the world I was going to get to the top to get home! (no elevator)
My physical exhaustion lasted a few years until I started to work smarter.
As I incorporated AMT into my practice I began to not only get better, faster, long-lasting results with my clients, but I also was thrilled to find I still had energy at the end of the day. I was able to start going out after seeing my clients in my office, and dancing and having fun, instead of just wanting to drop into bed!
( I was not married at the time and since I was single back then, I still wanted a social-life outside of work!)
I am now teaching AMT (and business-growth seminars) around the country on national stages, and locally.
You will finish your work day feeling really satisfied about the stellar results you are able to get for your clients, (helping them get out of pain, regain their ability to do the physical things they want to do) PLUS you won’t be burnt out from the physical stress on your body like traditional hands-on therapy does) of seeing a bunch of clients in a single day.
Watch below as busy Event Planner, Constance explain her relief from thinking she was going to have to schedule a Total Hip Replacement to now being 99% pain free after just a handful of AMT sessions.
You may feel you’ve been burned by paying to study another ‘new’ method, only to find out it is the same-old stuff, but with a new name. Or you might have attended a seminar or workshop where the methods are so complex and difficult to learn, you go home and just fall back into your ‘old routine’. My AMT seminar is different because AMT IS different!
In AMT, your clients are active participants before, during, and after the hands-on therapy. The therapy protocols are easy to remember, and even easier on your body to apply. (You don’t have to be an expert in anatomy, although it is great if you are!) Unlike many other certification programs, once you have attained your AMT certification, you don’t need to re-test every year or pay more money to maintain your certification. I want as many people as possible to receive Active Myofascial Therapy, so I made it as easy as possible for you to learn it and apply it!
The Active Myofascial Therapy Training includes Methods and Principles, AMT Marketing and Practice Management Tools,
AMT clinic-use Documents, PLUS so much More!
(13 "virtual" hours) The virtual portion of the course is taught through online education to get you familiar with the concepts and application.

It is a 40 question pass/fail written test and all the answers will be taught in the seminar.

Aside from the fact that I keep these professional trainings very intimate and personal in an “Apprenticeship model” where every student who attends will be hand-guided by me to reach your full potential. (No question will go un-answered with lots of hands-on time. My goal is for you leave the training feeling confident in being able to apply Active Myofascial Therapy effectively to get brilliant results right in your practice once you return home!)
How fast can I see results with clients?
Sometimes within a few minutes of therapy! Depending on the condition of your client, most clients experience impressive results after just the 1st or 2nd session! We suggest that if your client does NOT feel any improvement after the second or third session, either your assessment of their condition is faulty or you are not applying the correct techniques. We are THAT confident your clients WILL SEE RESULTS!
(NOTE: In 99.9% of the cases of soft-tissue dysfunctions, AMT WILL be an appropriate, responsible, effective therapy of choice!
How Much More Can I Charge For My AMT Session?
In a cash-based practice, it is generally accepted to charge a minimum of an additional $10- $100 for a 50-60 minute session, and $5- $50 more for a 10-30 minute session. PLUS, I will teach you how to charge for a session, not for your time so you focus on results and get paid even more!
Can I bill Insurance for AMT?
Depending on your state & country rules, you may be able to bill for your services. You will need to know the billing codes and it will depend on the type of insurance your patients have.
How long does an AMT therapy sessions last?
Range from 10 minutes to 55 minutes. We teach you how to schedule based on the services and results, rather than per hours of time. Most basic orthopedic, soft-tissue conditions only need 3-10 sessions of around 30-60 minutes to achieve brilliant results!

Now many other top-level education providers in our industry are also now incorporating Active Myofascial Therapy into their own work and teaching it to their students because AMT is so fast, easy and effective!
After investing and learning The Diamond Method, most practitioners have easily been able to raise their rates AT LEAST $20 more per AMT session, earning them on average an increase in income
of $1000 -$1200 each month.
The pain relief and structural improvement results you will provide as an Active Myofascial Therapist will add so much additional value to your clients and patients over what you are providing them now. Your therapy today will continue to benefit them for the rest of their life due to the postural corrections and Actions you teach them.
Active Myofascial Therapy will:
Because you will be providing a higher level of service to your clients, you can ethically charge a higher rate.
