about Jamie Speary

During his previous career as a landscape gardener Jamie suffered from lower back, shoulder and knee pain as well as other niggles that affected his health and well being. All that changed after he went for an Amatsu treatment. Jamie was amazed at how it worked and how much better he felt. Jamie knew then that he had to change career and train as an Amatsu Practitioner.

Jamie qualified in Anma, the first level of Amatsu, in November 2012 and a year later passed the second level, Seitai, to become a fully qualified Amatsu Practitioner. He trained at the accredited Amatsu Training School in Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire and then set up Herts Clinic in February 2014. Jamie is a member of The British Register of Complementary Practitioners (BRCP) and affiliated with Amatsu Therapy International (ATI).

In 2016 Jamie qualified in acupuncture for structural dysfunction and cupping for pain management. Along with Amatsu these additional treatments work well on their own or combining the different treatments together, depending on the individuals problem, having some amazing results.

Amatsu is an ancient Japanese physical therapy which has evolved with modern western orthopedic techniques. It restores balance (biotensegrity) to the body using natural movement (taijitsu) to correct anatomical dysfunctions.

Amatsu uses diagnostic tools including muscle testing and orthopaedic testing to understand and explain the problems within the body. During the treatment I will assess specific dysfunctions and the most effective way to restore balance to the body with minimal intervention.

This is possible because of the application of Taijitsu, which is one of the reasons why Amatsu is unique. Taijitsu or natural body movement is used by the practitioner to induce movement in the client which then facilitates a deeper level of integrated, whole body correction.

Anma allows us to work with the muscles and bones. Amatsu helps to release tensions within the muscles, allowing the bones to move freely without restrictions. Seitai works by reintegrating healthy movement patterns back into ligaments and fascia. This is the passed on to the muscles, and creates space within the body and its main joints.

Acupuncture is a technique used to treat a variety of conditions, by stimulating nerves and muscles within the skin producing a variety of effects. It increases the body’s release of natural pain killers – endorphin and serotonin – in the pain pathways of both the spinal cord and brain.

Acupuncture treatments involve inserting fine needles through the skin which are then left in position for around 20 minutes, sometimes longer depending on the condition. The number of needles required will vary on the individuals problem. Each client will be assessed and their treatment tailored to them.

Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which suction is applied locally to the skin. The suction mobilises blood flow to promote healing in a range of conditions.

Cupping involves placing glass or plastic cups on the skin and creating a vacuum by suction. The underlying tissue is raised, or sucked partway into the cup. The purpose of cupping is to enhance circulation, help relieve pain, remove “heat” and pull out the toxins that linger in your body’s soft tissue

Cups maybe left on your body briefly or longer periods, depending on the condition and maybe moved around like massaging. Cupping causes the skin to temporarily turn red, blue or purple especially if there is an injury or tightness under the area that was cupped.
