Our practitioners will work for varying amounts of times on different parts of your body that may not always seem obviously related to you. This is because they are trained specifically to tailor your balance each and every time according to your needs on that day and to always take into account your whole body and the bigger picture of any painful condition or problem.
In order to keep your body well hydrated after your treatment we advise that you drink plenty of water and try to avoid those foods that could commonly cause dehydration. In some acute cases you may be advised to avoid vigorous physical exercise for 24 – 48 hours. Please ask your practitioner for specific advice.
If you have any questions or concerns following your treatment please contact your practitioner who will be able to discuss them with you..
- Is it an acute or chronic condition?
- Is it an acute condition with an underlying chronic cause?
- What is the general heath of the client?
- What other outside factors such as job and lifestyle need to be considered?
- Is there a specific time frame due to a forthcoming holiday or event?
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.
It is often useful to balance newborn babies that may be experiencing problems from birth. Signs to look for are: only turning their head to one side, constant crying or screaming, excessive colic, repeated ear, nose and throat problems. All of these symptoms may be helped by using cranial balancing techniques and therefore, we recommend that the Amatsu practitioner be qualified to Kenku level.
Amatsu therapy should not be used to replace medical treatment without consultation with your GP. If unsure, please consult your local Amatsu therapy practitioner and your GP for advice.
