The Oriental Medicine Association is a group of professional practitioners who are qualified in various forms of oriental medicine, such as Amatsu (physical therapy), Herbs, Cupping and Moxibustion.
Our school is situated in Celbridge, Co. Kildare, and offers professional qualifications, and post-grad courses in various areas of oriental medicine.
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. It looks at the interaction of five factors for health referred to as Godai. These five factors: Structure, Nutrition, Energy, Emotion and Environment are interdependant and can cause illness in any of the other areas.
