Amatsu therapy, a Japanese osteopathic treatment, is based on ancient principles of movement and integrative health. Modern Amatsu is supported by a thorough understanding of anatomy and physiology understanding. This combination creates a powerful and effective treatment that corrects anatomical dysfunction affecting the whole body systems. This principle looks at the body as a holistic, self supporting unit rather than a bio-mechanic structure.
Amatsu uses a range of techniques including soft tissue work (e.g. muscles, tendons, fascia, ligaments, organs), structural adjustment (spine, joints), balance to the organs system and cranial touch which 'awaken' the inherent potential of our bodies to heal and relax returning to its natural health with minimal intervention.
Osteopathy is based on the principle that good health and harmonious interrelation of skeleton, muscles, ligaments and connective tissue are crucial to an individual’s well being.
Osteopathic care commences with the identification of the cause/s of the complaint and then uses soft tissue work and gentle physical manipulation and appropriate self care advice on dietary intake, exercise/life-style, emotional/psychological well-being to improve function, aid health and reduce the risk of reoccurrence of the presenting complaint.
Indian Head Massage
This massage, based on the ayurvedic system of healing which has been practised in India for over a thousand years, is also called Champissage. In the 1980s Narendra Mehta, an Indian physiotherapist and massage therapist based in London, incorporated the traditional techniques into a treatment designed to be given with the client seated in an ordinary chair, with additional work to the upper back and shoulders, upper arms neck and face.
The fact that you can be seated while receiving the massage makes it possible to enjoy it almost anywhere. But if you prefer to lie down on a massage table you can benefit from it as well.
It is an invigorating, uplifting and revitalizing massage.
