Go-dai means the 'Big Five'

One of the principle philosophies of Amatsu therapy is that of the Go-dai. In essence, the principle is that none of these systems work in isolation, they are interconnected. Therefore treating with Amatsu techniques will have an impact not only on the physical, but on all of the other systems.

It is becoming well documented that our emotions and the physical body are interconnected. For example, we are all familiar with the likelihood of stress or mental anxiety leading to physical tension in a part of the body such as the neck and shoulders. Similarly, our energy levels (and/or digestive system) can be affected by physical pain in our joints or muscles and the postural choices that we make at work or in the car can lead to tension and pain in the body.

Thus everything within the body is linked and Amatsu treats the body as a whole rather than just the individual symptoms. In today’s modern world where many of us live with consistently high levels of stress, it is vital for this to be taken into account within any treatment that you may receive.

By treating the whole body, all of the elements will be able to work together to regain better health, function and balance. Regaining the natural, healthy patterns relevant to you is the aim of every Amatsu treatment (balance).
