Providing Total Health Solutions

Amatsu is a Japanese therapy that orginates from martial traditions.  Previously passed down from master to student, the current head of the tradition is Dr Masaaki Hatusmi from Noda City in Chiba province in Japan.  In 1995 Dr Hatsumi Broke with tradition and granted teaching rights outside of Japan and there have been over 100 students taught the UK. 
Amatsu is primarly a structural therapy that works balancing the interaction of five aspects of health, Structure (the tissues of the body such as bone and muscle), chemical (the food we eat and how we absorb it), Energy (the meridian systems in Chinese medicine), emotional (our thoughts and feelings) and the way we interact with our environment.  As you can appreciate these factors all overlap, for example muscles need energy to function which is obtained from food, digestion can be effected by our emotions, I mindset can be effected by our work environment and so on.
