Welcome to Amatsu Physical Therapy
Amatsu is a gentle form of Japanese Osteopathy that originates from the Martial Art traditions of Japan and the traditional school of Hichi Buku Goshin Jutsu. Amatsu's fundamental principle is that good health is based on balance within the body, in the mind, in what we eat and drink, in how we use our energy and in our interaction with the world around us. Using Amatsu as a form of regular self-care can play a huge part in maintaining health and vitality.
"There is more wisdom (CHIE 知恵) in your body than in your deepest philosophy"
Amatsu works with the body's own natural internal wisdom (CHIE 知恵, pronounced Chee-eh) to help restore balance, maintain good health, and aid in the restoration of the body’s own ability to heal itself.
Amatsu’s approach to the physical body is underpinned by the modern science of Bio-tensegrity.
Amatsu is a uniquely beneficial corrective treatment that can be used to treat specific injuries or to re-establish alignment and symmetry of the body.
I am a member of the Amatsu Association of Ireland and I am listed on the Register of Physical Therapists of Ireland and my treatments are recognised by most major health insurers – AVIVA, LAYA Healthcare, VHI etc.
Conditions treated include:
- Neck, Back and Pelvis Pain
- Sports Injuries
- Joint Problems
- Postural Problems
- Digestive Problems
- Pregnancy/Fertility Related Issues
- Menstrual Problems
- Infant Colic
As structure governs function and any issue where the root cause is structural may be treated using this approach, so this is by no means complete list of issues that may be helped by Amatsu.
I am also a qulaified Certified Infant Massage Instructor, accredited by Baby Massage Ireland. Baby Massage Ireland is the Irish Chapter of the International Association of Infant Massage (IAIM). Infant massage is an ancient tradition that has been practised for centuries in India, which has been rediscovered throughout the West.
Refunds are available on many Private Health Insurance Plans for my Infant Massage course.
