Amatsu Therapist LindaAmatsu is a Japanese physical therapy originating from the martial arts of Ninjitsu and has been around in certain forms for about two thousand years brought to the West by Dennis Bartram in the early 1990’s following training with the Grand Master Dr Massaki Hatsumi in Japan.

Amatsu treats your whole body, not just the symptoms.  It comprises of a number of different techniques such as massage, mobilisation, re-patterning and cranial balancing, which can be used in many combinations to suit the clients needs including back pain.

Your body has an amazing ability to regain its own health.  However, the stresses of life can damage or distort your natural patterns leading to poor health in various forms.  Amatsu supports and encourages the natural abilities of your body, working with it and not imposing corrections onto it.  Regaining natural, healthy patterns is the aim of every Amatsu session, restoring balance and producing wholeness in your body.

Amasu can be of benefit with back pain in pregnancy by ensuring the feet, knees and hips re freely moving and aligned, which allows the pelvis to be in the optimum position.  This can remove pressure on the nerves, especially the sciatic nerve.

A balanced pelvis is also beneficial during birth.

Amatsu can help with heart burn, and cranial balacing can help with the effects of stress and headaches.
