Amatsu is the natural body movement that creates a powerful change with a gentle touch. It is used by the practitioner to induce movement in the client which then facilitates a deeper level of integrated, whole body correction. This method of working is consistent with the biotensegrity principle as explained by Dr Steven Levin, which looks at the body as an holistic, self supporting unit rather than the traditional bio-mechanic machine it is often described as, for a better explanation please refer to Dr Levins’ website.
Amatsu is a whole body treatment that works with the body’s soft tissue eg: muscles, tendons, fascia, ligaments, organs and cranio-sacral system. It helps to re-balance other key mechanical and energetic structures eg: the spine, joints, bones, cranium and meridian circuits. By bringing the body back into balance, Amatsu empowers the body to heal itself.
Amatsu balances are given fully clothed, it is ideal to wear loose fitted clothing.
Yes, but depending on the injury and the length of time the injury has caused problems, your practitioner will work with you to bring wellness, which may be focused on functionality and movement, bringing you back to a place where your body works well without pain.

It looks at the interaction of five factors for health referred to as the Godai (Go meaning 5 in Japanese). These five factors, Structure, Nutrition, Energy, Emotion and Environment are interdependent and can cause illness in any of the other areas. Therefore, it is not just a physical injury that can cause problems to the body. All too often life’s stresses mean that our bodies have to adapt and cope with tensions and strains, leading to poor posture, sluggish digestive systems, aching shoulders and necks. Amatsu can help to relieve these strains.
Treatments or balances are suitable for people of all age groups. Even the tiniest baby can have experienced a trauma, often from the process of being born. Babies generally love Amatsu as it gives them back their natural freedom of movement. Amatsu treatments (balances) are gentle and non-invasive and are suitable for people of any age, from the very young to the very old and for those with limited mobility.
