What is Amatsu?

Traditional Japanese "Amatsu Ryoho" is probably one of the most closely guarded secrets of Japan, which encludes concepts about

  • physique
  • emotions
  • energy/information
  • nutrition and
  • environment

which are used for prevention, recovery and optimization of human well-being.

This results in a holistic picture of the “being”, which shows that the original state of equilibrium is based on a permanent interaction of nutrition, emotions, energy/information, physique and environment. Any kind of pain, discomfort and tension makes it obvious that there is an imbalance.

To restore the balance on all five plains, we use different concepts and exercises taken from the Amatsu Ryoho. Thereby we tackle the conditions at the root of the problem and activate the natural self-healing powers. This helps us to gain a healthy and fulfilled life enriched with power, vitality and well-being.
