Hello! I’m Katie

I found Amatsu after a number of falls from horses and other related injuries. Having tried a few different therapies and struggling to get lasting relief I was recommended Amatsu. That changed everything! After a handful of sessions, I was out of pain and moving more freely. I never looked back.

What Is Amatsu?

It is a Japanese form of physical/manual therapy which aims to restore the natural balance and alignment of the body. It is rooted in the principle of natural body movement or “Tai-Jutsu”

So many modern-day activities interfere with and jeopardise our natural movement for example sitting at a desk for long periods, driving, sedentary lifestyles. These lead to changes in our posture and how we move, affecting the body’s ability to function to it’s best. We are designed to move!

By working directly with the soft tissues of the body, the skeletal structure can be gently realigned, and the systems of the body can be restored to function more efficiently. It is a very non -invasive treatment. By working with the muscles, ligaments, tendons and fascia we coax the musculo-skeletal system into alignment and remove stress and strain from the system. We also take into consideration the position and function of the organs allowing them to function in a more efficient way.

It is safe for everyone from new-born to the elderly and everyone in between.

For me, it is the adaptability and deceptive gentleness of Amatsu that is its’ power


I began training as an Amatsu Therapist in 2012 with the Liath Training School, qualifying in Anma (Level 1 – muscular), Seitai (level 2 – ligament and tendon) and Shinden (level 3 – visceral/organ related) over the following years.
