An Amatsu Orthopathic Therapy treatment, referred to as a ‘balance’, normally takes between 30 and 45 minutes. Treatments are carried out fully clothed. On your first visit a detailed personal history is taken. We consider everything you say, and give time to freely talk about your problem.

You will be asked to fill out a detailed consent form , and a comprehensive case study history will be taken. We will discuss the details of any medical condition or injury you might have. Then you will be asked to remove your shoes and lie on the plinth. We will proceed to carry out a series of kinaesthetic and orthopaedic tests to form a picture of what your body is specifically saying to be the issue.

A thorough analysis of all relevant factors allows us then to construct a treatment plan – to bring you from where you are and move towards your solution. Every balance is specifically tailored to your needs on the day you present for treatment.

The number of treatments required will always depend on your individual problems. Emphasis is placed on educating clients to take control of their own health. My objective is to teach you to listen to and read the signs your body sends you. It is well known that ‘prevention is better than cure

Post Treatment Advice

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 a sense of freedom or to feel more upright. You may also feel relaxed and sleepy and notice your body standing and moving differently between treatments.

Sometimes, as muscles let go of old injuries you may experience some achiness; drinking sufficient water and keeping mobile will help you process these symptoms. Think of this as your body sorting out a new way of reacting to the changes. Note and report all the changes back to me.

24-48 hours following your Amatsu OrthopathicTherapy balance, please:

  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Keep mobile e.g. have a brisk, short walk swinging your arms.
  • Avoid strenuous exercise.
  • Don’t over do uncomfortable postures which may have contributed to your body’s problems e.g. sitting hunched over a computer keyboard or holding a telephone to your ear.
  • Go barefoot at home or where possible and avoid high heels.
  • Have a warm bath or shower.
  • Although gentle, Amatsu Orthopathic Therapy is asking your body to release lots of restrictions that it may have held for a very long time, so you may be quite tired.
  • Importantly, listen to your body – it will tell you what it needs.
