Amatsu is a soft tissue and mobilisation therapy which has its roots in traditional Japanese medicine and is based on principles of natural movement.  Your body has many different systems, all of which need to work in balance to give you the health you want. These fit into five main categories – Physical, Electrical, Chemical, Mental and Environmental. 

None of these work in isolation.  With Amatsu, by treating the whole body and not just the symptoms, all the elements will be able to work together to regain health, function and balance.  Amatsu comprises several different techniques such as massage, mobilisation, re-patterning and cranial balancing.  All these can be used in many combinations to suit your specific needs.

Amatsu can be used to treat adults and children, from new-born babies upwards.

The list to the right is not a comprehensive list as many more conditions may also be treated.  Please feel free to contact us to discuss your condition or symptoms if they are not listed and we will be happy to advise if Amatsu or other treatment may be beneficial to you.  Amatsu Physical Therapy should not be used to replace medical treatment without consultation with your GP or other healthcare professional.  If unsure, please contact Colin or Dáire and your GP for advice.
