origins dating back approximately 5,000 years to the period of the Yellow
Emperor, Hwang Ti.It was brought to the
United States from
by the late Tina Sohn, co-founder of the largest holistic healing center on the
east coast.As AMMA Therapy® is based on the Five Elements,
it seeks to discover the root cause of disease and places a strong emphasis on
the role of the emotions in healing.
AMMA Therapy® has been described as a
“revolutionary form of wholistic bodywork,” and incorporates other elements from
Traditional Chinese Medicine.The success of AMMA Therapy®
is reliant upon the development of the practitioner, specifically the
sensitivity skills of the practitioner, and the ability to center and focus
The late Mrs. Tina Sohn was healing sensitive, descended from a royal line of
TCM healers. Along with her late husband,
Dr. Robert Sohn, she founded the Wholistic
HealthCenter on Long Island
and authored what is called the only comprehensive text on Asian bodywork
incorporating Eastern and Western medical principles.
AMMA Therapy® has been used in private practice, in the spa setting, and also
in the hospital setting.It was successfully introduced into
several hospitals, including
New York’s Bellvue hospital,
through the Wholistic Nursing Program at the Wholistic
HealthCenter, now known as the New York
College of Health Professions.
Maria Troia a healing intuitive who
received her training in AMMA Therapy® at the New York College of Health
Professions, where she went on to serve as instructor and student clinic
supervisor.Maria is a Master’s Level educator with two
degrees from HofstraUniversity.She came to the healing arts as a patient in 1997 after a car accident
with a drunken driver.Having a background in western
medicine, she turned to that system to heal her injuries.
When it failed her, Maria began an exploration into alternative medicine that
changed her life and started her on a new path.
Maria has since dedicated her career to educating
others about energy medicine and holism.Her goal as
therapist and teacher is to treat clients and students with the same level of
patience and respect her own healers and teachers have given her.
I have been a headache sufferer for many,
many years. They would last for weeks, sometimes months. I
recently had a very bad ten day headache to the point of such severe
nausea with simple head movement that it was impossible to function or
sleep peacefully. I did an intensive headache treatment (3 consecutive
days) with Maria. It was miraculous. My headache is gone, neck and face
pain gone, I'm sleeping peacefully and pain free, and have no more need
for drugs. I feel like a new person. Anyone who suffers from
serious headaches and wants pain relief without drugs must see Maria.
She gave me my life back.

I first met Maria at the New York College
of Health Professions where she was a well respected instructor. I got
to know her further while taking a continuing education course for Hot
Stone Therapy where she really exhibited her passion for massage therapy
and helping people. Maria then joined my team at Cindi A. Prentiss
Physical Therapy, PC/Healing Hands Massage Therapy, PC. I cannot begin
to explain the positive impact Maria made on my business. She has taken
my patients/clients to a whole new level. Patients who suffer from
chronic pain, traumatic injuries, repetitive injuries, post surgical,
post traumatic stress syndrome, and habitualy poor posture are just a
few of what Maria has had truly amazing results with using techniques
such as Myofascial Release, Myofascial Unwinding, and AMMA Therapy®.

I saw a mutual client of ours on Tuesday,
and wow, you guys did awesome work together. Her body was so different
from how she typically shows up, even emotionally she was different. It
was a huge shift. There was such an openness that there wasn't much for
me to do with her in our session, except some simple grounding points to
keep things moving, and clear a little heat from a skin rash she had. I
just wanted to thank you and tell you she also thanked me for referring
her to you. Great work, my friend. You are a fabulous healer.

Maria Troia was my massage therapist when
she lived in New York. The problem is that after experiencing Maria's
"magic hands" during the amazing massages she gave me, where she drew on
her vast knowledge of different methodologies and techniques, I compare
every other massage therapist to her . . . and they all fall short! One
particular massage was soooo relaxing that my eyes remained half-closed
for several days, and that is not an exaggeration! When Maria moved to
Arizona, I realized that New York's loss was Arizona's gain. I'll never
find anyone like her again!
