Body tension? Your body could be telling you more than you think….

Is your body telling you something?


Often I find that people come to me with a problem be it depression, physical aches and pains, IBS, low energy low self esteem amongst others and it is evident that not only do we work with the person psychologically and emotionally but also structurally.  What goes on in the mind can be reflected in the body and vice versa. 

For example one person came to me with chronic back ache which was due to a severe wheat allergy – cut the wheat – sort the back.

Another came with depression and we linked it to her coccyx being jammed due to an accident falling off a horse when she was young, exacerbated by giving birth… The coccyx in its Lovett Brother state (one vertebrae is always linked to another so what ever goes on below is reflected above and so forth) is linked to the sphenoid a bone in the brain which when not in alignment can impinge the function of the pineal gland which produces serotonin derivative melatonin, a hormone that affects the modulation of wake/sleep patterns and seasonal functions…all those happy hormones suppressed can potentially influence our state of mine and body.

Someone else with severe shoulder pain was linked to unexpressed hurt and emotional upset.  By assisiting the person on a journey to more self confidence and identifying the exact pain she was able to communicate her hurt, face her fears and move forward pain free!

Thus which ever person I am working with I find that structural alignment and wellness is IMPERATIVE thus one modality I always come back to is Amatsu.

Amatsu is a modern adaptation of a soft tissue therapy that has been used for thousands of years in Japan.  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.  Using unique soft tissue pressure and mobilisation techniques to treat your whole body, not just the symptoms, it also addresses the effects of life’s daily stresses on you.

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

It is not just physical injury that can cause problems. Amatsu is based on the idea of the Godai (Big Five) The five areas that interact and influence the way your body responds to life:



where, when and how you do what you do



your body's structure; bones, muscles, ligaments, organs



your thought processes, emotions, beliefs, values



 your hormones, digestive system, the food you eat



your nervous system and energy systems


When these are in balance, you are healthy.  A loss of balance in any one area will result in change in the others.

All too often life's stresses mean that your body has to accommodate various and diverse traumas. Luckily the body is amazing in its ability to keep us going. It will always strive to allow us to live and keep going each day. However, each time we encounter a problem, it takes on a pattern of coping until it can no longer adapt and has no more space in which to go.

Amatsu is a catalyst for the body's innate and profound ability to maintain health itself.  Don't forget that it is your body, you know it best and it knows what is needed in order to repair.  Amatsu can help facilitate this journey and helps to connect the mind/body link that allows you to do this. 

Let your body breathe and dance the dance of joy and living a pain free life.. 

Take time for your body and your body will take time for you.



What they say:

My life has changed dramatically since Sarah and I started work together. My insight into who I was as a person has genuinely altered. I have seen aspects of myself I would never noticed had I not done the work with Sarah that we did. I have noticed my body is changing day to day even with only one session. Previously I used a chiropractor for scoliosis and was having regular adjustments however this wasn't addressing the route of the problem. I believed life wasn't supporting me and as a result my spine has grown crooked in a few ways shall we say.


I now feel much more supported in my life and as a result I genuinely believe over time my spine will start to straighten out. After all I wasn't born this way 


 Prior to our first session I was emotionally unbalanced about 30% of the time and of that 30% of the time I really felt I couldn't cope. I have been on a spiritual journey for 7 years and although looking back at how far I have come I really had so much still to cover.  I still felt I didn't understand who I was as a person and my role in the life I had chosen to live.


 I couldn't even begin to measure the difference since working with Sarah. I have gone on to do further training and started up in business again. My body feels better, my emotions are healthier and my energy levels are rising more and more each day. 


I have increaslngly got a deeper knowledge of self from working with Sarah, my belief structures have changed (along with my NLP course) and I feel satisfied with where I am at in life. 

Sarah is a rare breed of therapists who don't just 'talk the talk' she 'walks the walk. I have yet to find someone as genuine and caring as this lady in seeking the real route of the challenges I was facing. I had always felt like I was on someone else’s time and I needed the space and love to really get to the bottom of the issues I had been facing. Sarah was genuinely patient and caring which in turn created a safe space for me to overcome the momentous walls and blocks I had in place for protection.  I have huge love, trust and admiration for this woman. A great woman and amazing role model.  Thank you Sarah   GEORGE EVANS



Sarah brings such a wide range of different therapies and energy work to the table, connecting with the individual in a wonderfully holistic way.  I frequently enter with crooked bits, heavy bits, achy bits, ribs that won’t move, grumbly guts, headaches (not all together – well not always).

Sarah expertly assesses the situation and sets about pulling, applying pressure, massaging, twiddling (these are not technical terms) rebalancing and calming ALL areas of my body and my mind.  I leave feeling light, free, able to breath and extremely balanced.

I had been suffering from back trouble on and off for thirty years or so. My right foot turned out, one leg was significantly longer than the other and one shoulder was lower than the other. I had limited rotation in my right; the Doctor prescribed anti-inflammatory drugs that I took, and it still hurt like mad.

Sarah was recommended to me by one of the Gym Instructors. Even after my first visit there was a dramatic progress in my right foot, which no longer turned out so far; after the second visit the pain in my arm somehow disappeared after two more visits, and bits of me that haven’t moved properly for years are working more or less as they should do.


If I had to tell you exactly what Sarah does – I couldn’t explain it; all I know is that it works. If you asked me if she hurt me – I would say that she finds bits of me that already hurt and afterwards they don’t hurt as badly. If you were to ask me if I recommended her – I would reply “absolutely”. John P MK


The first treatment I had from Sarah was for terrible back pain. On the day I arrived for my treatment, I was hobbling around and finding it extremely uncomfortable to drive. The Amatsu therapy that Sarah gave me relaxed my muscles, banished the pain and enabled me to move around freely again. I am also certain that during the session I received the benefit of the skills and knowledge that Sarah has acquired from the other healing disciplines that she has studied. Sarah’s intuitive and holistic approach to healing make her a flexible and effective healing practitioner and I would recommend her to anyone.
