The therapy which is so gentle, really does help the whole body not just the joints.
My knees feel really good because my back is better, even my arm which hadn’t moved properly in ages now swings easily when I walk. I can bend and stretch to do my housework and I can even put my bra on properly. Thanks
As an ex-asthma sufferer of many years I had not realised how the movement in my neck, shoulders and upper torso had been compromised. Amatsu has restored proper mobility to my neck and rib cage and it is a delight to feel I can breathe freely. My general posture is better too.
My back used to ache constantly, walking was an effort and kneeling impossible. I can now stride out without relying on my trolley to keep me upright. Thanks

I appreciate the time you took to explain the techniques to me, I felt very reassured by the depth of your knowledge. It felt quite strange but it worked.
As you are aware, I fell and fractured my wrist. Following many sessions of physiotherapy I was told that I would be unable to move my arm behind my back. After a few Amatsu sessions I now have full mobility in my arm.Regular sessions with you have also helped my husband, a stroke survivor with partial paralysis of his left side. He also sends his thanks for all your hard work – after his sessions he feels relaxed and energised, inspired and motivated to confidently tackle dailt pursuits.
You performed a miracle on me, hospital and physio made no impression on my frozen shoulder. When I came to you I couldn’t raise my arm six inches from my side. Two sessions had me pain free, further treatments gave me complete mobility. How that very gentle treatment works is a mystery but also amazing.

I feel so much better, the headaches have gone and my head turns properly.
Amatsu has really sorted my body out! It has realigned my posture and taken away aches and pains caused by bad posture and accident damage over the years. My glasses now sit evenly on my face too!

My doctor had diagnosed me with sciatica and a friend recommended Amatsu which I hadn’t heard of: I was in a bad way, unable to stand or sit comfortably, the painkillers didn’t help and they had ‘bunged me up’. I was desperate but sceptical.I could stand straight after the first session; walking without pain took a few sessions and overall the treatment has been very effective. I now have a regular balance once a month. I am a convert and thoroughly recommend Amatsu to everyone.
