Amma is an extremely specialized form of massage therapy rooted in Taoism dating back about 5000 years. Amma therapy combines deep tissue manipulation with the application of pressure, friction, and touch to specific points. While acupuncture inserts needles into the energy pathway to stimulate and move the energy, the Amma therapist relies primarily on the sensitivity and strength of the hands. Amma has proven to be an effective and powerful therapy for people of all ages for the promotion of health and well being, prevention of illness and for the treatment of specific disease.

Shiatsu refers to a Japanese pressure therapy used to relieve a variety of problems including psychological issues, back pain, neck and shoulder problems, stress, insomnia, digestive problems, and fatigue. It is based on traditional Chinese medicine techniques, particularly massage therapy that has been recommended since ancient times, with certain Japanese innovations.

Zen Shiatsu is a form of bodywork administered by thumbs, fingers, palms and elbows, feet and knees. It depends for its success on a meditative activity of the practitioner, aimed especially at detecting the body responses to the treatment, which influences the subsequent treatment step by step. Pressure is applied to all parts of the body along specific pathways (meridians). These are essentially the same meridians that are used in traditional Chinese medicine for acupuncture. It is understood that this technique stimulates the natural healing powers of the body.
