I was first told I had Osteoarthritis in 1993. I was 44 years old. I had severe neck and shoulder pain. X-rays showed a Spondylosis.

I was recommended physiotherapy and pain killers. For several years I tried various forms of treatment. My hands and wrists became affected and some of my hobbies such as sewing and knitting became too painful to continue. By 2007, I was on daily doses of Aulin a strong painkiller. I had an accidental fall and although my injuries were not serious, my friend recommended I have Amatsu. I started seeing my Amatsu Practitioner weekly at first but the visits dropped to fortnightly, then monthly and eventually even less frequently. I experienced less pain, stopped taking the painkillers and now see her about once a month. I take no painkillers at all. I attribute this improvement to Amatsu.

I was introduced to Amatsu by a friend as a "case study". At first I was a bit dubious if this could be of help for repeated Migraines I had been having for years. After a few sessions I felt a very positive change as my body started to correct itself, provoked by the gentle working of the practitioner.

My practitioner made me aware of lots of things that have helped immensely. I got help from a trainee, that and much more can be expected from my practitioner and any who are fully qualified. My work has me in Sth America and unfortunately Amatzu practitioners have not arrived here yet. It would be my first choice of therapy.

It's not that there was anything wrong - but something was not quite right and I knew I should feel better, happier, healthier and more "normal"

I had a lovely family and home, a good job, yet I felt generally unwell, discontented, tired, lacking enthusiasm - things that had never troubled me before. I thought "Is this it? Is this as good as it gets?". I felt so unwell that I visited the doctor a number of times, but as there wasn't anything particularly "wrong", while the doctor was kind, there really wasn't anything to be done. Amatsu was recommended to me by an Amatsu Practitioner who was treating my sister with great success. I didnt have any expectation from my first balance. It's difficult to put your finger on it but after just one balance my life changed for the better. I felt my Amatsu Practitioner "got it". Little by little, all the things that had heretofore been lost to me began to give me joy again. Simple activities - day to day stuff, no longer seemed like mountains to climb. I have now been attending Amatsu for approximately 6 years and it has been my redemption. My Practitioner is wonderful and has many "strings to her bow" - she is caring, empathetic, supportive, strong, positive, highly skilled - everything one could need from a Practitioner. She taught me skills that I have used in my daily life to help me be instrumental in creating my own happiness. It sounds "airy-fairy" but it's real, its grounded and it works! I asked my Practitioner years ago what Amatsu meant to her and she said that on one level it equips us with the ability to cope with normal everyday life and all that comes with it. Amatsu has many levels - its meets individuals' needs at just the level they require at any particular time. For my family and myself, accessing the ability to cope and thrive has been a blessing. I attend Amatsu regularly, it's not magic, it helps me to cope with "normal" everyday life. And normal is good.

Although I am an Amatsu practitioner myself, I would like to share my experience as a patient and how brilliantly the Amatsu tool kit worked on me.

I had been having back pain for more than a year but it deteriorated in the last two weeks and the pain became so intense that it locked my body in a way that meant I was bed-ridden, unable to dress myself or carrying out basic moves. I was able to test myself to see if it was a disc problem which turned out not to be the case but I was unable to identify the cause. Over time, I had tried various Western and Eastern healing methods (e.g. meditation techniques, chi gong, acupuncture treatment with cupping and tui na, painkillers, heat patches) but unfortunately none of them worked for or on me. I asked my Amatsu tutor to give me a balance. After the initial assessment she told me that my diaphragm had locked up and pulled my lumbar spine so it caused me pain and the inability to bend forward or walk. During the balance/treatment my body opened up quite quickly and the pain gradually dissolved. Half way through the session I was already able to turn over without any pain and by the end of the process I was able to walk again, pain-free. Apart from the physical treatment, she also provided me with some sound nutritional advice to further stabilise and strengthen my body. What a great achievement during a short period of time! What an amazing knowledge we can use to help others and ourselves! I can hardly wait to study in my Shinden course to further develop my skills.

"I've tried most other physical therapies, and found Amatsu to be the most effective by a long way. I always felt there was something that other treatments never picked up on, and with Amatsu I noticed a difference after only the first session

Having struggled with an old back injury for more than 20 years I'm now able to drive again, which is a huge change. It has also improved my general health and played an important part in my recovery from M.E. Having seen the benefits for my husband as well, who suffered from migraines and posture problems, I now recommend it to everyone !"
