Amatsu therapy the ancient healing art of Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi is explained this video by Dennis Bartram, underpinned by Dr Steven Levin Biotensegrity.Amatsu originates from the martial traditions of Japan. It has evolved into its current form in the Western world through the research and clinical experience of its practitioners. Its philosophies are as appropriate now as they were 2000 years ago.
In 1986, Dr Hatsumi invited three osteopaths from the British Isles to learn the art of Amatsu. Dennis Bartram from Hartlepool, Chris Roworth from Hillingdon and William Doolan from Dublin and they trained with Dr Hatsumi over a prolonged period. During this time, they used Western methods to evaluate the effects of Amatsu and formulate a therapy that was true to Dr Hatsumi's teachings yet scientific enough for the Western world. They returned to their home towns, and set up training schools to fulfil Dr Hatsumi's wishes: that the world should know about Amatsu. This has allowed Amatsu to grow in Europe with the formation of new Amatsu schools throughout England and Ireland. Each of these founders has developed their own interpretation of Dr Hatsumi's teachings and has gone on to teach their own understanding of Amatsu.
