Amatsu - Ireland

What is Amatsu ?

Amatsu is a Japanese complementary therapy that has been used for thousands of years. Although it originates in Japan modern Amatsu therapy includes influences from China and Korea. Amatsu was introduced to the West by Chris Rowarth, Dennis Bartram and William Doolan. They were taught by Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi, who broke with Japanese tradition by teaching the three westerners.

Amatsu medicine is a truly holistic therapy that treats the whole person by working with the body rather than against it. Unlike conventional medicine Amatsu operates on the belief that all aspects of the body and physiology are interconnected and therefore treatments focus on the entire body and not just on the apparent locus of the symptoms.

Amatsu is a hands-on treatment that involves touching different parts of the body, even parts of the body that appear to be unrelated to the patients difficulties

It treats the whole body rather than just the symptom(s), working on the philosophy that everything within the body is connected. So don’t be surprised to find that an Amatsu practitioner starts working on your feet even if you came with stiff fingers. This is not at all unususal and will deliver positive results.

There are four distinct levels of Amatsu.


Amma means to push and pull. Various parts of the body are gently pushed and pulled in a way that relieves tension and stiffness. This helps to restore normal levels and function within the circulatory and lymphatic systems. This in turn helps to regenerate and repair other bodily functions. Superficially Amma appears to be the same as massage and is sometimes referred to as remedial massage.


Seitei means to correct the body. It focuses on the head, spine, pelvis and feet to bring about correct alignment and balance. By re-creating a symmetry in this way the body's auto-immune system is boosted while also minimising strains on the body in general. Seitei is commonly seen as a more gentle form of osteopathy.


Shindenjutsu addresses imbalances in the body's ligaments and it is central to Amatsu balancing. It uses ligaments to clear blockages to the flow of energy (chi) throughout the body. Old injuries and illnesses can leave residual blockages that linger and can cause difficulties long after the original condition has apparently cleared up. These residual blockages when allied with current stresses can compromise the immune system which often leads to new illnesses and difficulties. Shindenjutsu treats legacy medical issues.


Kenkujutsu brings balance to the head and the spine. The head is key to the body's well-being and any cranial imbalances can result in a wide array of difficulties including emotional issues, posture problems, motor difficulties and even colic in new babies. Kenkujutsu, or cranial balancing, can be extremely helpful in dealing with a wide array of symptoms, conditions and illnesses.

What is Involved in a Amatsu or Balance Session ?

An Amatsu session, called a balance, aims to restore the body's balance which induces pain relief and addresses the causes of the pain. The initial Amatsu session will involve a detailed investigation into the client's personal and medical history so that the practitioner can form a clear understanding of the problem. The practitioner will also use other methods such as observing the client and his / her movement, muscle testing, and touching to gather more information.

During most Amatsu therapy sessions the client usually remains fully dressed however occasionally it may be necessary to remove some item of clothing to facilitate effective treatment. It is advised to wear loose fitting and comfortable clothing for balances. As clients lie down, either face up or face down, for sessions most people find Amatsu therapy sessions relaxing. Some clients feel mildly dehydrated following a balance so it is recommended to drink some fresh water after each session.

It is not unusual to feel some difference straight away although it may take a few days following the Amatsu session for the benefits to kick-in.
