An Amatsu therapy treatment, referred to as a ‘balance’, normally takes between 30 and 60 minutes. For the most part treatments are carried out fully clothed. On your first visit a detailed personal history will be taken. Your practitioner will consider everything you say and will give you the time to talk fully about your problem. We think it is important to put the pieces together so you both have the fullest picture of how your body is coping. We believe that the people with the best knowledge about the problem are the clients themselves. Your practitioner will then assess your whole body. They will use a combination of observation, testing and palpation (touch) to gather further information about the current health status of your body.
Your practitioner will discuss with you how the different techniques work and why they are doing what they are doing. Our practitioners are trained specifically to tailor your balance each and every time according to your needs on that day. They will regularly ask you for feedback as to your health and well-being in between balances and they will construct your balance around this, whilst always taking into account your medical history. For further information on the techniques and principles of Amatsu please see – Amatsu therapy / In depth The number of treatments required will always depend on your individual problems. We believe in educating our clients to take control of their own health. Many clients, once they have resolved their initial problem, return to maintain their health. Some come for a balance on a regular basis eg once a month, whilst others return as and when they feel a need. We aim to teach you to listen to and read the signs your body sends you. It is well known that ‘prevention is better than cure’. A balance on regular basis may help you to prevent the everyday stresses of life from building up within your body.
