AMMA Therapy

AMMA Therapy is an integrative form of massage therapy that combines Oriental Medical principles based on the balance and flow of energy with a Western approach for assessing organ dysfunction such as blood tests , X-ray, MRI, EKG, etc.

AMMA Therapy, like Acupuncture, focuses on the balance and movement of energy within the body. Whereas the Acupuncturist inserts needles into the energy pathways to stimulate and move the energy, the AMMA Therapist relies primarily on the sensitivity and strength of the hands to manipulate the life energy. AMMA Therapy techniques include both deep tissue massage that is used in other forms of therapeutic massage, and the stimulation of energy movement that is the basis of Chinese Medicine.

Aura-Soma

Aura-Soma is a holistic colour therapy which aims to help re-balance the human aura . Aura refers to the electro-magnetic energy field which surrounds our body and which can be seen by clairvoyant. Soma means body. It restores and revitalizes the body, mind, spirit and emotions. It is the first therapy to combine the living energy of colour, essential oils and herbal extracts with crystal and mineral energies. This combination aids in revealing the root cause of any imbalances and moves you further towards wholeness and wellness.

Aura Soma was created in England in 1984 by Vicky Wall. At that time she had been a practicing pharmacist for 40 years and was a podiatrist. At an early age Vicky was able to see human auras. She saw people as rainbows of colour and was able to detect if something was not quite right within the rainbows. At the age of 66 Vicky formulated the first bottles and Aura-Soma was born.

Ayurvedic massage

Ayurvedic massage combines energy work on the marman points (subtle energy points) with the use of medicinal oils to promote the health and well being of the subject.

One of the oldest systems of medicine in the world, Ayurveda views the human being as intimately connected with the environment and all other life forms. Ayurvedic massage works on both the physical and mental levels, transmitting a life-giving energy that assists all systems of the body to repair and renew themselves. Practitioners concentrate on the marmas, which respond to gentle physical manipulation, and work with the needs of the different body types.
