Gairon is the foundation of Amatsu therapy

Gairon is the foundation of Amatsu therapy. It is pronounced Guy-ron which loosely translates to mean “the bigger picture, consider everything, discount nothing, use the best available and find that which is not obvious.”

Therefore we are trained to consider the bigger picture of any problem or symptom. For example, a bad knee could be because of a direct injury on the knee. However, it is also likely that the posture (total body position) and the natural walking and standing pattern of the client has led to the progressive damage and degeneration of the knee, therefore creating a vulnerable area.

Amatsu is different because it considers not only the localized condition within the knee, but also the bigger picture of the other stresses, strains and torsions that are placed on the knee by the whole body. “It’s all in your walk, you must find it in nature, it must come from your heart and if you don’t understand Gairon, then you can’t continue”.
