ACTIVE MYOFASCIAL THERAPY - THE DIAMOND METHOD®
can Provide Pain Relief, Improved Mobility & Enhanced Performance.
(Name changed in 2018 to Active Modulation Therapy)
The "2021 Shut Down" didn't stop music teacher, Florence
from receiving Neck, Shoulder & Ankle Pain Relief
in a Single AMT Video Visit.
Why was Florence able to receive impressive results, without a therapist even touching her?
Because The Diamond Method providers listen, assess, educate, and support clients to take their health into their own hands. Florence was guided on what she could do at home, and you'll hear her tell how effective it was.
The 2 choices of The Diamond Method®
#1 - DAM - Diamond Active Massage™: this revolutionizing active massage is designed precisely for luxury spas, health and wellness facilities and exclusive venues. To qualify as a licenced DAM location, venues must have a sustainability plan in place.
(Activate People & Planet)
DAM is different from anything you've experienced. During a session, you're an active participant of the therapy too. Transformational relief of muscle tightness, and stress and improved performance is the result.
#2 - AMT - Active Myofascial Therapy®: The clinical approach of AMT, with much more manual and movement therapy to help people with pain, dysfunction, injuries and restricted movement.
How Can We help You Get Out Of Pain?
Fast relief because you are an active part of your therapy. AMT & DAM sessions incorporate the
7-step D.I.A.M.O.N.D. Method.
Either alone or in conjunction with physical therapy, massage therapy, chiropractic, or other modalities AMT & DAM are focused on getting you quick and permanent results.
We incorporate biology & psychology through conversation, movement, and manual therapy. You are provided with home care 'homework'.
We are with you every step of the way to support you to reach your goal.
Why Active Myofascial Therapy (AMT)?
Precisely for people who have been in Chronic (persistent) Pain for years, are trying to prevent or postpone surgery, or are recovering from a new situation such as a Recent Injury, Surgery, Car Accident, Work-Related or Sports Injury or have migraines, chronic fatigue or fibromyalgia.
You're guaranteed results. Through movement, manual therapy, awareness, and conversation, Active Myofascial Therapy® is the most impressive approach to get rid of pain, move easier and get back to living a full life.
What is The Diamond Method®?
Created by Irene Diamond, R.T., Active Modulation Therapy is appropriate for myofascial pain, migraines, and improved performance and mobility.
AMT and Diamond Active Massage (DAM) are completely different approaches from anything you’ve experienced before.
AMT is the clinical rehabilitation approach -- 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!
We believe AMT and DAM 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 Modulation Therapy ~The Diamond Method to therapists in seminars and workshops around the world.

(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.
