Can amatsu therapy be used for babies and small children?
The techniques of Amatsu allow treatment right across the age range. It can treat newborn babies to the most senior of citizens. Please note that under 16s must be accompanied by an adult at all Amatsu sessions.
It is often useful to balance newborn babies that may be experiencing problems from birth. Signs to look for are: only turning their head to one side, constant crying or screaming, excessive colic, repeated ear, nose and throat problems. All of these symptoms may be helped by using cranial balancing techniques and therefore, we recommend that the Amatsu practitioner be qualified to Kenku level. For further information on Kenku please refer to the training – the levels.
Are there any contraindications to a treatment (balance)?
There are a number of conditions where your practitioner would ask you to seek approval from your doctor before they would treat you. Please ensure that you advise your practitioner of any medical conditions or injuries. They will then tell you if further authorisation or information is required.
How much does a treatment (balance) cost?
Please contact your local practitioner for full details of their pricing structure. A directory of fully qualified practitioners is available on the ‘find a practitioner’ page.
Can I see other practitioners and therapists during my amatsu therapy programme ?
Amatsu is not only complementary to western medicine but to other complementary therapies so combining different treatments should not be a problem. It is important that you are transparent with this information and keep all practitioners involved fully informed.
Amatsu therapy should not be used to replace medical treatment without consultation with your GP. If unsure, please consult your local Amatsu therapy practitioner and your GP for advice.
