This therapy is concerned with balance and movement of life energy (Qi) in the human body. It was first used during the Tang Dynasty (618 AD-907 AD) in the Imperial College of Medicine at Hsian. "Amma" is an ancient Korean term that describes massage and roughly translates as "push-pull."

Amma therapy today uses thumbs, fingers, forearms, elbows, knees, and feet to press, stroke, stretch, and percuss upon the 14 major energy channels of the body.
