History of Amatsu

Amatsu therapy is a blend of modern research and ancient Japanese natural movement orientated ‘hands on’ therapeutic techniques dating back over 2,000 years.


Until recently, the knowledge and skills were shared with only a handful of people in each generation and have been passed down over the years in an unbroken chain.


The present day head of the Tatara is

Dr Masaaki Hatsumi of Noda City, Japan.

The ‘feeling’ and principles taught today directly derive from Dr Hatsumi and the

ancient school of Hichi Buku Goshin Jutsu Ryu.

This is a school of physical techniques of one of the ancient traditional healing arts of Japan.
