Hear What These People Have To Say About Active Myofascial Therapy…
If you've taken OTHER modality classes, seminars & workshops --
You'll see, Active Myofascial Therapy is DIFFERENT
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 there are a ton of students packed into a huge room, where you're lost in the crowd and can't see the instructor or get your personal questions answered.
Or the methods and protocols are so complex and difficult to learn, you go home and just fall back into your 'old routine'.
No More Fear!
The Diamond Method approach is different because AMT and I am different!
SMALL, INTIMATE CLASSES:
I limit the number of students in my trainings to just a handful of people, so you can be absolutely sure you can see exactly what I'm doing and where my hands are placed and how I move the patient around.
By watching me directly from just a few feet rather than projected on a big screen from across the room, you'll observe the nuances, ask questions in real-time, and be able to feel me work on your body, too!
MEALS & SOCIALIZING:
When you attend my trainings, you are my guest, treated as family. I know your name, and you know the other students.
We build a close relationship over the few days together and you leave feeling completely satisfied that your needs were met.
We meet in my San Francisco Wellness Center, so you also get a sneak-peak, 'behind-the-scenes' peek at how we run things at the biz, how our center looks, and even might hear me answer the phone or greet a client!
The training center is located on the second floor with only stairs. YOU MUST BE ABLE TO WALK UPSTAIRS to attend. We are in a 120-year old Edwardian with no elevator
I feed you! You'll have your breakfasts and one night's dinner included in your tuition.
(This makes it easier than running around finding places to eat, and rushing to the class in the am! Plus, your tuition is 100% tax deductible, where as meals are not!)
Your Results Are Super-Charged because of your
patient's Active Partnership with you, and how you support building their self-efficacy:
• In AMT, your clients are active participants before, during, and after the hands-on therapy.
• The Diamond Method follows a specific 7-step DIAMOND protocol, while each of the actual sessions are structured by you based on the specific client you are working with. The 7 steps 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! As long as you know how the body moves, and what actions are possible when moving specific joints, you're going to be great!
• You'll be suggesting patients perform home-exercises, (we call these Actions) which help them maintain their results and improve their ability to own their recovery process, even when the clients are out of your clinic.
• Unlike many other certificate programs, once you have attained yours in AMT, at the moment you don't need to re-test every year or pay more money to maintain your Diamond Method certificate.
(This free access will change down the road)
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!

4 Simple Steps to practice
Active Modulation Therapy -The Diamond Method
STEP 1. Attend & participate in the full 40 hour education, structured in 2 parts:
Virtual, Pre-Seminar Learning
(Over 15.5 + "distance" hours) The virtual portion of the course is to get you familiar with the concepts and application and is taught through online education. Therapists LOVE this pre-learning, because you get instant access to this Pre-seminar content (audio recordings, downloads and video) as soon as you register!
In Person, 3-days
The live portion of the course will be 25.5 hours in person to learn and practice the methods and techniques. The exact seminar location and schedule will be announced in email after you register.
STEP 2. Learn hands-on AMT method and approach and the top 22 most popular 'Actions'
(These Actions are the therapeutic exercises applied in AMT and are available in our new app, for you to assign to your clients!)
- Actions for Cervical Region (Neck)
- Actions for Torso
- Actions for Upper Extremities (arms)
- Actions for Lower Extremities, Hips, (Legs and buttock)
- Actions for Posture / Bio mechanics / Ergonomics
Step 3. Submit & Pass the Written Exam
It is a 40 question pass/fail written test and all the answers will be taught in the seminar.
Step 4. Submit at least 1 Clinical AMT Case Study
Relax, we give you the instructions and an outline on how to do a case study - so don't stress!
My team and I will be behind YOU
EVERY STEP OF THE WAY!
Discover how you can help your clients get back to living a full life so YOU can have your successful dream clinical practice!
You might be wondering, "Is learning AMT Right For Me?"
Aside from the fact that I keep these professional trainings very intimate and personal in size and style, 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!)
Decide if The Diamond Method™ is Right For You
Can I mix AMT into my existing Physical Therapy, Massage, Chiropractic or other type of practice?
YES! It is easy because AMT can be used as a stand-alone modality or to complement what you're already providing, perfectly!
How fast can clients see clinical results?
Sometimes within a few minutes of therapy! Depending on how your client presents, 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 session, either your assessment of their condition is faulty or you are not using the correct approach.
(Remember, positive outcome is not just what you do with your hands on their body. You will learn effective things and ways to speak with your clients, and how and why to have constructive conversations. You will also learn how you have the client move, and much more.)
We are confident your clients WILL SEE RESULTS once you've acquired the AMT concepts!
(NOTE: In 99.9% of the cases of soft-tissue dysfunctions, AMT should be an appropriate, responsible, effective therapy choice!)
How Much More Can I Charge For My AMT Session?
Every practitioner is different, but we have observed in a cash-based practice, it is generally accepted to add a minimum of $25- $100 per minute session, over your current charges now.
You'll learn how to design and offer our Accelerated Pain Relief program. Most therapy clinics price this program between $500 - $2000 per client with the goal to get them BRILLIANT, LONG-LASTING, FAST CLINICAL RESULTS!
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, what your license allows you to do, and it will depend on the type of insurance your patients have. (In the course, you will receive a list of appropriate billing codes)
How long does an AMT therapy sessions last?
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 1-10 sessions lasting around 30-60 minutes to achieve brilliant results!
Do I need any special equipment to provide AMT services?
No, you just use a standard chair and a therapy table. Most of the time you work with clients clothed, so don't even need lotion nor will you need to wash a bunch of sheets at the end of the day!

So ... IS THIS EDUCATION YOU CRAVE?
Registration starts by Interview Application, ONLY.
limited to an intimate few students per training!
This preliminary interview will help us both decide if The Diamond Method is a good fit for you in your practice, and for you to join us in the training.
I trust you see the tremendous value to your practice!
Once you learn the entire AMT 7-Step clinical system, you will see how the AMT system will help you in your practice, just as it has helped thousands of clients and patients already.
Hundreds of healthcare providers have been propelled to a higher level of success, both clinically and financially by incorporating AMT into their practice, providing even more brilliant clinical results!
Many therapists have said the AMT Practice-Success System
has monumentally changed their practice!
In fact, because AMT is so fast, easy and effective, you may have observed many other top-level education providers in our profession now also incorporate Active Myofascial Therapy and patient active-engagement or active-muscle movement while providing manual therapy.
These well-known continuing educational providers are using AMT in their own practices and teaching AMT-style technique to their students.
The tuition is $3000.
($2K if we're still in pre-enrollment)
There are hundreds of educational courses that cost a lot less than mine ...
and if you're comparing only on the tuition investment, you will spend much less elsewhere.
However, most of my students tell me they recoup their investment within 30-60 days by providing AMT with just 1-3 clients.
You'll see the quality of education students get from my course far out-weighs the type of training cheaper courses deliver, and they agree it is well-worth investing their money into learning AMT!
Therapists report (after every seminar) how much MORE value they received from being in our intimate, private group where they got my full attention and all their questions answered, than they ever got in other, bigger trainings or courses!
Are you concerned about the Financial Investment?
Here is my "Diamond Financial Improvement" tip:
After investing and learning The Diamond Method, most practitioners easily raise their rates, & report back that they earn on average an increase of $1000 -$3000 each month by applying AMT into their practice.
Obviously, you may see different results, since I don't know your skills, or business.
In fact, I cannot guarantee any increase in your personal revenue.
However, you will learn how to offer an Active Myofascial Therapy, Accelerated Pain Relief Program that you can offer for $500 - $3000 per client.
(Believe it or not, most patients and clients will be happy to pay you for the results they'll receive.)
The pain relief and movement improvements you will provide as an Active Myofascial Therapist will add much additional value to your clients and patients over what you are providing them now.
Learning Active Myofascial Therapy today will continue to benefit your practice for the rest of your career.
Applying The Diamond Method will help your clients:
- speed recovery
- decrease pain
- understand how 'perfect posture' is not the goal, and moving is key
- ability to move with ease and function
- take an active role in their own healing and well-being through "self-efficacy"
Do you think you can ethically charge a higher fee for your services when you provide a higher level of service to your clients?
Many practitioners begin to earn back their investment in this seminar as soon as they provide AMT on their very first client or patient, even before they attend the in-person training, just from the pre-learning educational component!
What is an extra $1000 a week worth to your family?
(Don't worry -- once you bring AMT back in to your practice, if you need support to know how to raise your rates, incorporate AMT into your practice, and discover all the other systems and strategy that go
into running a successful practice, we can explore my additional coaching support.)

These 2 entire seminars are taught by me, Irene Diamond
(World Massage Hall of Fame inductee, 2013, the founder and creator of
Active Myofascial Therapy ~ The Diamond Method™)
HOW DID IT START?
Dear Therapist, Trainer, Coach, Practitioner, or Wellness Provider,
I developed Active Myofascial Therapy ~ The Diamond Method to be a fast, effective, easy-on-your-body technique.
It all started because I was paralyzed from the neck down: Active Modulation Therapy - The Diamond Method™ 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. 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 acro-partner was a medically trained anesthesiologist, and immediately suspected I had suffered a spinal cord injury.He did “all the right things” to prevent my injury from getting worse.
Although I was completely paralyzed initially, after 2 months flat on my back in the hospital in a halo in traction and then spinal surgery, I eventually went on to regain full movement.
I love being a pain relief therapist!
After earning my BA degree in Rehab, Recreation and Movement Therapy, I spent years learning and perfecting the AMT protocol and techniques for various musculoskeletal and orthopedic conditions.
I am proud to provide Active Myofascial Therapy in my San Francisco Wellness Center and to have therapists and clinicians all around the globe providing AMT to their clients and patients.
I am now a mentor to other therapists running a successful clinical practice.
After years of observing and hearing from so many of you,
I got really fed up with seeing therapists struggle financially in their practice.
Can You Relate?
I saw far too many skilled practitioners who were super knowledgeable and had years of education and experience under their belts, but were not able to get enough clients into their treatment rooms to barely make enough money to survive.
I also saw practitioners who did have full books of clients, but they would end their long days with their bodies aching because they were working so hard, physically. In fact, many of them 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 with awkward, physically demanding positions we get ourselves into!
Before I started applying AMT into my practice, I recognized that I used to be exhausted all the time, too ...
My story is a little different from most, because getting clients actually came really easy for me.
I don't say that to brag, but attracting clients was simple ...
But -- because I had a jam-packed schedule of 6-8 deep-tissue / sports massage or personal training clients a day, I was 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 of 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! (the building had no elevator and I was schlepping a treatment table!)
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 dancing and having fun, after seeing my clients in my office, instead of just wanting to drop into bed!
(I was single back then and wanted a social-life outside of work!)
When I realized I had created a therapy system that other practitioners could easily learn, it was exciting to know I could share the success.
I am now teaching AMT (and business-growth seminars) around the country on national stages, and locally.
My “sweet spot” is knowing how to make complex stuff
super-easy for you to learn.
The unique AMT approach will support your clients & patients to experience superior, fast clinical results, incorporating biopsychosocial elements, with a current understanding of pain science, along with Positional Awareness™️, manual and movement therapy!
- When you provide AMT, you will finish your work day feeling strong, and really satisfied about the brilliant results you are able to support your clients to achieve.
- Your clients will reduce their pain and regain their ability to do the physical things they want (need) to do.
- You learn how to use your body weight to apply the manual manipulation so you won’t be burnt out from the physical stress on your body like traditional hands-on therapy classes. .
- You learn how to incorporate important conversation within the session with your client to involve them in their therapy plan, and individual sessions.
- You learn therapeutic movements (we call Actions) that you incorporate into each session and suggest to your clients to do as home care so they continue to develop balance, strength, mobility and programatic memory.
- You learn how to support your client's ability to see hope, and what is possibly for their recovery and capability.
NO MORE dreading working with a bunch of clients in a single day for fear of hurting yourself.
