Natural Massage for your health and wellbeing
Amatouch has developed a safe-centered touch routine by ensuring that client comfort is a priority, by encouraging each client to communicate from the session\'s start, by adhering to a high level of professional draping standards. Amatouch Massage Technique brings stress and pain relief to body, mind and spirit.

Our bodies are held in postural balance by our musculoskeletal system, adapted through evolution to allow us to stand on two legs and ensure that our eyes remain level. Standing requires many of our muscles to continually contract and relax to maintain our balance, posture and stillness.

Commonly, one or more postural muscles will become overactive or underactive, too tight or too slack and other larger group muscles will become involved to compensate. It is this compensation pattern that over time causes a more permanent postural imbalance to occur with associated dysfunction of joints, abnormal range of movement, ineffective breathing patterns, muscular pain, stiffness and inflammation.

A massage therapist is able to quite quickly assess an individual’s posture by observing skeletal alignment against an “ideal” alignment, palpating muscles for areas of hypertonicity or hypotonicity together with general tissue health, and testing range of movement actively and passively to identify muscles that are too tight or too slack. The therapist will then take into account any medical issues or contraindications together with the client’s wishes, and develop a massage treatment plan tailored to correct the individual’s postural problems. This treatment plan, will be continuously re-evaluated based on client feedback and results in a “treat what you find approach”.

The benefits of massage therapy can be a key component of an holistic approach toward general health care. The manipulation of soft tissue and its surrounding structures through massage can directly effect our main systems and tune our body to its highest potential.

Research shows that the benefits of massage therapy at all stages of life, from newborns to senior citizens are enormous.
