[accordion-item title=”Do I need to remove my clothes?”]Most treatments are carried out fully clothed, you will only be asked to remove your shoes and possibly your belt. On occasion and with your permission, some clothing may be removed temporarily for a closer examination.[/accordion-item]
[accordion-item title=”What does a treatment (balance) feel like?”]An Amatsu balance is a unique full body treatment that uses various techniques that feel like soft tissue pressure and mobilisation. Different levels of pressure are applied according to your general health and the specific symptoms of your condition. This can vary from the very gentle and relaxing, to the more firm. Clients report different feelings; ranging from being relaxed or sleepy to the more invigorated and energised.

Our practitioners will work for varying amounts of times on different parts of your body that may not always seem obviously related to you. This is because they are trained specifically to tailor your balance each and every time according to your needs on that day and to always take into account your whole body and the bigger picture of any painful condition or problem.

[accordion-item title=”How will I feel after a treatment (balance)?”]Many people feel very different as soon as they get off the treatment couch; others start to feel the changes over a couple of days. It is not unusual to feel your body standing and moving differently between treatments. Some people may feel tired or have a boost of energy after the treatment, others comment that they had a change in the feelings they were experiencing. Please think of this as your body sorting out a new way of reacting to the changes. Reporting changes back to your practitioner will be a major benefit in your treatment structure.

In order to keep your body well hydrated after your treatment we advise that you drink plenty of water and try to avoid those foods that could commonly cause dehydration. In some acute cases you may be advised to avoid vigorous physical exercise for 24 – 48 hours. Please ask your practitioner for specific advice.

If you have any questions or concerns following your treatment please contact your practitioner who will be able to discuss them with you..[/accordion-item]
[accordion-item title=”How frequently do I need to come for a treatment (balance)?”]The number and frequency of visits depends on a variety of factors. Each of the factors affects each person differently so every individual will need a different treatment structure. These are the most common factors:

  • Is it an acute or chronic condition?
  • Is it an acute condition with an underlying chronic cause?
  • What is the general heath of the client?
  • What other outside factors such as job and lifestyle need to be considered?
  • Is there a specific time frame due to a forthcoming holiday or event?

We believe in educating our clients to take control of their own health. Many clients, once they have resolved their initial problem, return to maintain their health. Some come for a balance on a regular basis eg once a month, whilst others return as and when they feel a need. We aim to teach you to listen to and read the signs your body sends you. It is well known that ‘prevention is better than cure’.

A balance on regular basis may help you to prevent the everyday stresses of life from building up within your body.
[accordion-item title=”Can amatsu therapy be used for babies and small children?”]
The techniques of Amatsu allow treatment right across the age range. It can treat newborn babies to the most senior of citizens. Please note that under 16s must be accompanied by an adult at all Amatsu sessions.

It is often useful to balance newborn babies that may be experiencing problems from birth. Signs to look for are: only turning their head to one side, constant crying or screaming, excessive colic, repeated ear, nose and throat problems. All of these symptoms may be helped by using cranial balancing techniques and therefore, we recommend that the Amatsu practitioner be qualified to Kenku level. [/accordion-item]
