Amatsu therapy is a therapeutic bodywork approach working with the soft tissue and fascia. It has been formed by blending of modern research on anatomy, physiology and movement with ancient Japanese movement practices (known as taijutsu) dating back some three thousand years. The Amatsu principles taught today are from the ancient school of ninjitsu known as“Hi Chi Bu Ku Goshin Jutsu”.This is a school of breathing techniques and physical modalities of well-being and translates as “The Secret School of the Opening Flower”.
‘A soft tissue therapy that restores balance (biotensegrity) to the body using natural body movement (taijutsu) to correct anatomical dysfunction.’
Amatsu Soft Tissue Therapy has developed by using diagnostics tools from a wide range of disciplines including muscle testing and orthopedic testing to understand and explain the body’s natural principles. During a treatment the practitioner will assess specific dysfunctions and the most effective way to restore balance back to the whole body with minimum intervention.
This is possible because of the application of Taijutsu, which is one of the things that makes Amatsu Soft Tissue Therapy unique. Taijutsu or natural body movement (as it translates from Japanese) is used by the practitioner to induce movement in the client which then facilitates a deeper level of integrated, whole body correction.
