The Amatsu Treatment
An Amatsu treatment, (usually called a balance), normally takes 30 minutes although the first session is around one hour. This initial assessment allows me to build a complete picture of your individual needs at that time. For the most part, treatments are carried out fully clothed.
Using a range of diagnostic tools, including muscle and orthopaedic testing and the principles of natural movement, I can assess specific problems and address the bigger picture, taking into account all the systems of your body, (not just, for example, the muscles). Using soft tissue pressure (varying from the very gentle and relaxing to the more firm) and mobilisation we can find the best way for your body to regain it's equilibrum.
Each balance will be different, addressing what happens to you in the intervening time between sessions and the number of treatments you require will always depend on the nature (acute/chronic) and length of time of your individual problems.
All under 16s must be accompanied by an adult
Amatsu therapy should not be used to replace medical treatment without consultation with your GP. If unsure, please consult me and your GP for advice.
AFTER YOUR BALANCE
Many people feel very different as soon as they get off the treatment couch; others start to feel the changes over a couple of days.
It is not unusual to feel diferent after a balance. You may notice changes in standing and walking. You might feel energised or tired.
Everyone is different so it is important to listen to your body and respond accordingly. Most importantly, change is good! After all, you didn't come for Amatsu in order to remain the same.
