The first thing to do is to make YOUR appointment for an initial balance.
At your first visit you will be required to fill out a consent form and a brief medical history will be taken, along with details of any injury or condition you currently have.
You will be asked to remove your shoes and lie up on the couch.
Your therapist will assess you using touch, orthopaedic and kinaesthetic progressive muscle testing.
Your therapist will decide on a treatment plan tailored to your needs and proceed as described.
The number of treatments required will depend on:
- The type/severity of injury or condition
- The length of time the injury/condition has been present
- The willingness of the client to assist in their own treatment
You wont be pressured into a treatment plan, how often you get an Amatsu Orthopathic Balance is down to you. The key to improvement is to make the changes in your posture and habits and timely balances.
An Amatsu Orthopathic Treatment/Balance
We call an Amatsu Orthopathic Treatment a "Balance" as the purpose of AOT is to balance your body and release tensions and strains that are limiting movement and function of your musculoskeletal system, visceral and cranial systems, releasing stress on your nervous system
After fully assessing you, your therapist will tell you what they have observed and explain how they would like to proceed in the balance.
If you are unsure of any part of the treatment, please say so. AOT is not meant to cause pain or discomfort, so please speak up if it hurts.
They will then employ traditional techniques that are gentle and safe to release excess tensions in your soft tissues which allows your body to heal itself. This may involve you adopting a new attitude towards your own posture which in turn will allow your body to move as you need it to without causing tensions that lead to injuries/adaptations.
After your balance you will feel a new shape as your body is in a more natural posture. In order to maintain that posture, you may need to make some small changes to how you do things, but its well worth it
