Active Myofascial Therapy
We are transitioning to a name change of Active Modulation Therapy due to our understanding of how our approach actually impacts the body’s physical tissue.

Created by Irene Diamond, R.T., Active Modulation Therapy™️ (AMT) and Active Diamond Massage™️ (ADM) are a completely different approach from anything you’ve experienced before!AMT™ is a perfectly synchronized hybrid of manual therapy, movement and exercise therapy, guided conversation & awareness. (somewhat similar to massage and typical PT, although you are actively moving during the session. We combine our 7-Step DIAMOND System to create your own profound personal awareness of how you’re feeling, how you’re moving, how you’re interpreting what is happening to your body (and mind) along with re-patterning your expectations and experiences from your prior experience of pain, injury or other therapeutic interventions in the past.
The Diamond Method is non-surgical, non-invasive, fast-acting, and not illegal or immoral!

(NOTE: We are currently in the process of changing the original name of Active Myofascial Therapy™️ and re-wording this website. We now understand much more about pain-science and rehabilitation than we did 30+ years ago, when I named this method. The new name is Active Modulation Therapy™️ to reflect the changes (modulation) we can affect in client’s pain, performance and mobility.
After only 5 sessions of the Active Myofascial Therapy with you and Mike, I felt (feel) 100% better. All my pain is gone! As you suggested I am walking on a regular basis now and doing the Actions you taught me, which really help. Your therapy certainly beats everything else I’ve tried, and the education on back care will help me for the life of my back! I give you high kudos, and sing your praises to everyone I know who has back pain.
