What is Amatsu Therapy?

The History of Amatsu

Amatsu comes from the teaching of Toshitsugu Takamatsu – the last Ninja Warrior in Japan. He passed his knowledge to Hatsumi, who is the current Grand Master of nine martial schools. Hatsumi now mainly teaches Budo Taijutsu, or natural body movement. It is this natural body movement that creates a powerful change with a gentle touch.

A Natural Approach to Healing

Taijutsu, or natural body movement (as it translates from Japanese), is used by the practitioner to induce movement in the client, which then facilitates a deeper level of integrated, whole-body correction. This method of working is consistent with the tensegrity principle as explained by Dr Steven Levin, which looks at the body as a holistic, self-supporting unit rather than the traditional bio-mechanic machine it is often described as for a better explanation, please refer to Dr Levin’ website here.

Evolution of Amatsu in the Western World

It has evolved into its current form in the Western world through the research and clinical experience of its practitioners. Amatsu moved to the West due to the efforts of three Westerners – Dennis Bartram, Chris Roworth, and William Doolan – studying in Japan during the 1980s and 90s under the guidance of Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi. In 1995, Dr. Hatsumi broke with Japanese tradition and granted them the teaching rights to Hichi Buko Goshin Jutsu and Amatsu. Since then, teaching rights have been granted to a number of teachers who have continued to teach Amatsu throughout the Western world.
