Often I find that people come to me with a problem be it depression, physical aches and pains, IBS, low energy low self esteem amongst others and it is evident that not only do we work with the person psychologically and emotionally but also structurally. What goes on in the mind can be reflected in the body and vice versa.
For example one person came to me with chronic back ache which was due to a severe wheat allergy – cut the wheat – sort the back.
Another came with depression and we linked it to her coccyx being jammed due to an accident falling off a horse when she was young, exacerbated by giving birth… The coccyx in its Lovett Brother state (one vertebrae is always linked to another so what ever goes on below is reflected above and so forth) is linked to the sphenoid a bone in the brain which when not in alignment can impinge the function of the pineal gland which produces serotonin derivative melatonin, a hormone that affects the modulation of wake/sleep patterns and seasonal functions…all those happy hormones suppressed can potentially influence our state of mine and body.
Someone else with severe shoulder pain was linked to unexpressed hurt and emotional upset. By assisiting the person on a journey to more self confidence and identifying the exact pain she was able to communicate her hurt, face her fears and move forward pain free!
Thus which ever person I am working with I find that structural alignment and wellness is IMPERATIVE thus one modality I always come back to is Amatsu.
Amatsu is a modern adaptation of a soft tissue therapy that has been used for thousands of years in Japan. It is based on ancient principles of natural movement and can be used to help many musculo-skeletal and lifestyle related conditions, as well as supporting the restoration of general health and well being. Using unique soft tissue pressure and mobilisation techniques to treat your whole body, not just the symptoms, it also addresses the effects of life’s daily stresses on you.
Unlike many other therapies, Amatsu is a whole body treatment that works with the body’s soft tissue (muscles, tendons, fascia, ligaments and organs) to help to re-balance other key mechanical and energetic structures (the spine, bones, joints, cranium and meridian circuits).
It is not just physical injury that can cause problems. Amatsu is based on the idea of the Godai (Big Five) The five areas that interact and influence the way your body responds to life:
where, when and how you do what you do
your body’s structure; bones, muscles, ligaments, organs
your thought processes, emotions, beliefs, values
your hormones, digestive system, the food you eat
your nervous system and energy systems
When these are in balance, you are healthy. A loss of balance in any one area will result in change in the others.
All too often life’s stresses mean that your body has to accommodate various and diverse traumas. Luckily the body is amazing in its ability to keep us going. It will always strive to allow us to live and keep going each day. However, each time we encounter a problem, it takes on a pattern of coping until it can no longer adapt and has no more space in which to go.
Amatsu is a catalyst for the body’s innate and profound ability to maintain health itself. Don’t forget that it is your body, you know it best and it knows what is needed in order to repair. Amatsu can help facilitate this journey and helps to connect the mind/body link that allows you to do this.
Let your body breathe and dance the dance of joy and living a pain free life..
Take time for your body and your body will take time for you.
