Amma Therapy: Become a student of the Mind & Body

Amma Bodywork Therapy is a comprehensive form of wholistic healthcare that includes training in a traditional Asian bodywork form, wholistic nutrition, herbs, supplements, meditation, tai chi, and qigong.

A classical Asian healing art and bodywork style that predates acupuncture, “Amma” is the oldest Chinese word to describe massage. Amma Therapy is a specialized form of bodywork that combines deep, circular pressure, acu-point stimulation & utilizes Chinese Medicine principles for assessing and treating imbalances in the body’s energy system.

Wellspring’s program provides a solid foundation in Chinese Medicine theory and diagnostics. Students will learn in-depth treatment of channels and points to maintain health and to prevent and relieve many health conditions.

Wellspring founder, Rylen Feeney (LMT#14733), and instructor, Michael Guida (LMT#19016) collectively have over forty years of experience teaching and practicing Amma Therapy. They offer the only training in Amma Therapy on the West Coast. The Wellspring School honors the integrity of this lineage art and strives to maintain Amma Bodywork Therapy in its purest form.
