Amatsu is a Japanese physical therapy and holistic approach to your health. It has evolved over a period of 5,000 years and has it’s roots in the Ninjitsu martial arts. It utilises natural movement principles and various techniques, including Craniosacral Therapy, Neuro-Muscular repatterning, and Acupressure. It most closely resembles Western Osteopathy, although in practice, it tends to be much more gentle.

What the Amatsu treatment involves.

During a treatment (in which the client remains fully clothed) specific areas of the body are gently pushed and pulled to release tension and tightness, thereby restoring the normal flow of blood and lymph to promote growth, repair and restoration of normal functions. It focuses on the head (cranium and neck), spine, pelvis, and the feet to bring about symmetry and paralateral movement. It therefore realigns and rebalances a person from head to toe, whilst balancing the meridian circuits of the body and the intrinsic cranio-sacral system. This results in restoration of symmetry and boosts homeostasis (immune system) with a reduction of body strains. Diagnostic tools are observation, muscle testing, and palpation.
