Amatsu

Amatsu is a physical therapy that restores balance (biotensegrity) to the body using natural body movement (taijutsu) to correct tensions and strains.
Amatsu originates from the martial traditions of Japan and uses a range of techniques including soft tissue work, structural adjustment, balance to the organ system and cranial work in order to release the inherent wellness that becomes subdued with disease.
