Amatsu in depth
Within this section we explain in more depth some of the fundamental basics that underpin Amatsu therapy in its modern western framework and how they relate to a balance (treatment) that you may receive.
Proprioception It is important to talk about proprioception in relation to Amatsu because every balance (treatment) aims to support its restoration to your injury sites and your whole body. Proprioception refers to the body’s ability to sense movement, enabling us to know where our limbs are in space without having to consciously look. This system is subconscious, which means that we don’t have to think about making the movements. Sometimes the reactions take place so fast they are termed reflexive. Proprioception is important in all of our everyday movements and in particular during complicated movements where precise co-ordination is essential; such as those in sporting activities or when undertaking a complicated manoeuvre such as parallel parking your car.
