“Amatsu Therapy has given me back a quality of life and Sarah has kept me mobile”
I first went to visit Sarah not really expecting too much as I had tried a number of alternative remedies for pain and nothing really worked well. I was a bit sceptical after the first couple of sessions. Now I sincerely COULD NOT MANAGE WITHOUT HER. Amatsu Therapy with Sarah has given me back a quality of life and she has kept me mobile.
I suffered with chronic pain as a result of Sciatica and swollen ankles for about four years. It was manageable initially but became unbearable. Every treatment in the NHS had failed to help. After about 6 to 8 weeks of seeing Sarah fortnightly my Sciatica started to ease and by 10 weeks I had no Sciatica, the pain had completely gone and no swollen ankles. After nine months it has still not returned.
Sadly while I was in pain with Sciatica, it was masking a separate pain in my right hip which turned out to be severe Arthritis, with x-rays showing no cartilage left in the joint and I need a hip replacement. Back to chronic pain. Sadly I have to wait a year for that so decided to continue with Sarah. While she can’t cure Arthritis she certainly helps with my pain. I see her fortnightly without which I have no doubt what so ever that I would be in a wheelchair.
The human body is an interconnected system and not only has Sarah treated my pain but healed others parts of my body that had become, shall I say tangled/upset as a result of others parts suffering i.e. my Sciatica causing me to walk almost S shaped.
I highly recommend Sarah and Amatsu to anyone not only in pain but to help in resetting the body’s systems. It does take time and with perseverance the results are well worth it.
To those of you who are shy when it comes to your person, like myself, be reassured Sarah has made me feel welcome and relaxed every time I have seen her and I intend to continue. Can’t recommend her highly enough!

“I no longer have daily pain”
Before Amatsu therapy with Sarah I was in a lot of discomfort- on a daily basis. I have hyperflexed joints and the various stresses and strains that my body has experienced- including a difficult pregnancy and symphysis pubis dysfunction- had left me misaligned and uncomfortable. Built up insoles in my shoes had helped correct the pronation of my feet and legs and Chiropractic treatment had rid me of the worst of the pain, but my daily experience was still one of discomfort- sometimes intense pain. The treatment I have had with Sarah has worked on the whole of my body to release and realign muscles and ligaments. After only one treatment, I felt dramatically better. After a few months of weekly treatments the whole of my body felt renewed. I now realise how much daily pain I was in- as I no longer feel it. I have been able to throw away my insoles and be much more active. I have not needed to see my Chiropractor. I strongly recommend Amatsu to anyone facing similar issues. I can say with all sincerity that it has changed my life.

Help for Plantar Fasciitis
I started going for Amatsu treatment in 2016, on the recommendation of a friend. I found it a relaxing way to spend an hour. I was then 72 and walked 4 miles daily as well as attending dance classes and workshops. However, there were two occasions when these activities resulted in painful side effects. I began to experience discomfort under my heel when walking. I had ‘Plantar Fasciitis’, which is basically caused by wear and tear and is common in older people who continue to be physically active. It was Sarah who really ‘nailed’ the problem and the consequent treatment resulted in faster repair of any damage.
The second activity related injury I sustained was after a very energetic dance workshop. My right knee swelled up and was very painful. I couldn’t figure out while that was so, as I was not a prayer-full person! Sarah quickly identified the problem as originating in the hip. This made sense when I reflected on the floor activities I’d participated in. Once again, appropriate treatment resulted in a very satisfactory outcome!
A year on and I am – thankfully – still physically and mentally active. I’m lucky to have good health and I’d hate to have to slow down. Thanks to Sarah and Amatsu, I now see my treatment sessions as essential maintenance to keep my moving parts running smoothly. After all, I service my car regularly to avoid problems in the future so why not do the same for myself? After all, I’m worth it!

“My breathing has 100% improved”
I contacted Sarah after a recommendation from one of my yoga students. I had been suffering with a sore chest which was impacting my breathing and nothing seemed to be helping.
Sarah and Amatsu have made a real difference to the pain I was experiencing. Managing to not only ease the discomfort but also explain what was happening in my body and what I could do to help with the pain too.
I cannot recommend Sarah enough. She really takes her time to get to know you and help you understand your body and what is going on. I now have the confidence to exercise again and my breathing has 100% improved. Thank you Sarah.
