Amatsu soft tissue therapy is a therapeutic bodywork approach working with the soft tissue and fascia. It has been formed by blending of modern research on anatomy, physiology and movement with ancient Japanese movement practices (known as taijutsu) dating back some three thousand years. The Amatsu principles taught today are from the ancient school of ninjitsu known as“Hi Chi Bu Ku Goshin Jutsu”. This is a school of breathing techniques and physical modalities of well-being and translates as “The Secret School of the Opening Flower”.
Within Amatsu Soft Tissue therapy , practitioners attempt to harness natural movement to create tiny changes within the structure of the body; soft tissue, muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia. No strength is used. It is a “light touch” therapy. However, such natural movement is immensely powerful, and will create small, subtle yet far-reaching changes.
