Do I have to be sick before I can book a Amatsu balance

I’m pregnant can Amatsu help me?
Amatsu is a gentle therapy, which is very effective throughout pregnancy. Speak to your practitioner to clarify at what stages it would be beneficial for you to visit. It can help with back pain, tension in the ligaments of the uterus, symphysis pubis and other conditions. It will also help to bring your pelvis back into balance. A pelvis that is in balance can move and turn to allow the baby to deliver as quickly and safely as possible. Amatsu treatment is gentle and non-invasive and are suitable for people of any age, from the very young to the very old and for those with limited mobility.
How frequently do I need to come for a treatment?
The number and frequency of visits depends on a variety of factors. Each of the factors affects each person differently so every individual will need a different treatment structure. A balance on regular basis may help you to prevent the everyday stresses of life from building up within your body.
What does a treatment feel like?
An Amatsu is a unique full body treatment that uses various techniques that feel like soft tissue pressure and mobilisation. Different levels of pressure are applied according to your general health and the specific symptoms of your condition. This can vary from the very gentle and relaxing, to the more firm. Clients report different feelings; ranging from being relaxed or sleepy to the more invigorated and energise.
How will I feel after a treatment?
Many people feel very different as soon as they get off the treatment couch; others start to feel the changes over a couple of days. It is not unusual to feel your body standing and moving differently between treatments. Some people may feel tired or have a boost of energy after the treatment, others comment that they had a change in the feelings they were experiencing. Please think of this as your body sorting out a new way of reacting to the changes. Reporting changes back to your practitioner will be a major benefit in your treatment structure.
In order to keep your body well hydrated after your treatment we advise that you drink plenty of water and it can take up to 24 hours to feel the benefits of the treatment.
If you have any questions or concerns following your treatment, please contact your practitioner who will be able to discuss them with you.
Are there any contraindications to a treatment?
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.
