Amatsu Orthopath is based on an ancient Japanese deep-tissue massage combined with modern knowledge of how the body works. This combination of ancient wisdom and modern science has produced a treatment protocol that is effective on a wide range of ailments.

It is based on ancient principles of natural movement and can be used to help many musculo-skeletal and lifestyle related conditions, as well as supporting the restoration of general health and well being.

Unlike many other therapies, Amatsu is a whole body treatment that works with the body’s soft tissue (eg muscles, tendons, fascia, ligaments and organs) to help to re-balance other key mechanical and energetic structures (e.g. the spine, bones, joints, cranium and meridian circuits).

The clinic is based in Sandyford and serves patients from across Dublin, including Rathmichael, Tallaght and Dun Laoghaire.
