Created by Irene Diamond, R.T., Active Myofascial Therapy™️ (AMT) and Active Muscle Massage™️ (AMM) are probably completely different from anything you’ve experienced before.
(We are currently in the process of changing the name of the method and re-wording a lot of the copy on this website, because we now understand much more about pain-science and rehabilitation than we did 30-years or so ago, when I named this method. The new name is Active Modulation Therapy™️ )
AMT™ is a perfectly synchronized hybrid of manual therapy (similar to massage, although you're actively moving while receiving the manual therapy) movement and exercise therapy (similar to personal training or physical therapy, although it's not an hour 'work out' that you 'do every day'!) and we combine that with 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 the past.
The Diamond Method is non-surgical, non-invasive, fast-acting, and not illegal or immoral!
We believe AMT and AMM are the most effective therapies of choice when someone has simple, basic muscle pain all the way up to severe soft-tissue pain & dysfunction!
Irene Diamond, RT, is an exercise and movement specialist who developed AMT as a result of a spinal cord accident she had at age 15. She was paralyzed from the neck down initially, but eventually went on to regain almost full movement.
Irene has a BA degree in Recreation, Rehabilitation & Movement Therapy. AMT-The Diamond Method is now a sought-after modality, with many expert teachers and educators in the wellness and therapy profession incorporating AMT into their own teachings and practices.
Diamond continues to see a handful of clients in San Francisco, California, USA while teaching Active Myofascial Therapy~The Diamond Method to therapists in seminars and workshops around the world.

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.

We know you've tried EVERYTHING from lotions to potions to pills to gadgest to a bunch of treatments that wasted your time and your money... But even worse, it gave you hope for relief that dissappointedly never came.
When you work with a certificated Active Myofascial Therapist you can have confidence that they attended the required training, submitted at least one case study and passed a certifying exam.
Mick Dawson is a 2009 World Record holder, from England. He came to AMT founder, Irene Diamond for an Active Myofascial Therapy session just one day after he broke the world record of rowing a small 2-man boat from Japan to San Francisco, California.
(It took Mick over 6 months of straight rowing!)
Listen to Mick in the video testimonial of his "Before' & 'After' of his 1 session of AMT!
