Amatsu in east dulwich
I work from a warm and comfortable clinic room within Dulwich Therapy Rooms, a tranquil holistic centre in the heart of East Dulwich, London. The clinic is situated less than 5 minutes walk from East Dulwich station which connects with London Bridge (12 minutes) for rail and tube services to the rest of the capital and the surrounding areas. If you are driving, there is lots of free on-street parking but you may need to leave yourself time to drive around some of the smaller streets to find a spot!
what to expect in an amatsu session
The first Amatsu session will be 60 minutes and begins with a thorough conversation about your current symptoms and your longer term health history. We will talk about lifestyle, stress levels, diet and other factors. This part of the session is very important as it starts to give me clues about how I can best help you. For the remainder of the session, you will be lying on a treatment couch. You will not need to undress as the treatment is carried out through your clothes, but it is more comfortable for you if you wear 'gym clothes' or other soft garments. II will be asking you some questions and talking to you once you are on the couch, but you can also use this time to relax and let go.
Asssessment of your body using touch and movement of your limbs is an essential part of the treatment. By doing this, I can establish which muscles, ligaments and other tissues in your body are working optimally and which are not. This helps to give me a 3-D understanding of any imbalance in your body.
One of the things I love about Amatsu is it allows me to be specific. Every session is different, even for the same person, because I don't treat you using fixed points on your body. I feel for pulls, tightness and heat so that I know exactly where to work on you to release that. I can find precisely where your body needs to change on that day to be balanced. If you are interested to know, I can tell you which muscles, bones or ligaments are involved and I know when I have made a change there. I can be a detective hunting for clues and seeing the mystery of your pain unravel!
Subsequent sessions will be 45 minutes.
I am often asked, how many sessions will I need. You can read more here.
Amatsu works to define and correct the cause of your problem, not simply to ease the current symptoms. For this reason, it works optimally with a series of sessions. (I explain more about why, here), which is why I no longer offer one-off bookings.
I understand that it may be a stretch to decide to invest in treatments, so I offer discounts for block bookings. As well as making the treatment sessions cheaper, it also gives me the opportunity to get to the true reason of why you are in pain. There are also some things that you can do to optimise the effect of the sessions.
First session (1 hour) - £99
You can pay me with card, cash or a bank transfer (within 24 hours of your session please).
what some more of my clients say..
I first went to see Lorna with a problem I had with my shoulder. I had an issue with it for about a year where the movement was quite restrictive and it had got progressively worse over time. I wasn’t able to do certain gym exercises or yoga postures which became quite frustrating as I really enjoy working out (and working in!).
I’m so glad I went to see Lorna as she managed to mend my shoulder in a really short space of time. I initially went to see her weekly and once the problem was solved which was after about 5 or 6 treatments I continued to see her as I liked the treatment so much. I have a session every 4 weeks now just to iron out a few niggles that accumulate over the course of the month though every day stress. I’ve recently got in to playing tennis about 4 times a week so my wrists, elbows, knees and ankles are under quite a lot of pressure. I also work a lot in front of a computer so my neck and shoulders can get quite stiff and tense. But after every Amatsu treatment I feel aligned again.
SB, Business owner
I have been seeing Lorna since 2010 and I am pleased to say that I have noticed a real difference in my postural and back issues as well as my general health overall. Most notably is that my functional scoliosis has been corrected and a year of chronic hip pain has been relieved. The treatments are always focussed on treating the issues at hand by understanding the underlying causes for them. Lorna takes the time to really understand how you are feeling to make sure the treatment has a noticeable impact by the end of the session, as well as taking a long term view to providing an overall solution.
MA, Associate Director
I had been suffering from severe headaches and pains in my neck on an almost daily basis
for several months and had found no suitable remedy from doctors and a neurologist.
Lorna was recommended to me and after seeing her for six sessions, to my great relief,
I have not had a severe headache for the last three months.I now see Lorna monthly for maintenence sessions. Lorna is friendly, professional and, most importantly, effective and I find my sessions
SA, Landscape Gardener
I've had rather uneven, sore shoulders for many many years, with my right shoulder blade often sticking out rather awkwardly. After each session of Amatsu with Lorna it felt looser and looser and we could see it visibly start to move back to where it should be. Quite amazing!
I always left the room feeling like a different person. All of my stress and tension from the day disappeared and I left calm and refreshed. Apart from the physical improvements Amatsu provides, I would also recommend it as a general feel-good tonic.'
GD, Town Planner
For six months, I was suffering from pain in my right knee. I found it hard to sit in certain positions and would have serious discomfort when exercising. I had tried to ignore the pain but my right hip started to hurt in a similar way and I knew something would have to be done. My friend recommended I try a few sessions of Amatsu.
Lorna is a great ambassador for Amatsu; she is passionate about the therapy and she
can explain the treatments and benefits in simple terms, making her confidence rub off
on those she treats.
Lorna made me feel comfortable immediately. She spoke to me at length, asking questions about my health and lifestyle. She explained how the treatments would be done and made it clear that I could ask her questions about what she was doing during the treatment.
After an initial three sessions, I felt good improvement in both my hip and knee and also found an added benefit was a more effective digestive system. After six sessions, the movement in my knee and hip was dramatically better and I will now only need occasional top-up sessions.
I highly recommend Amatsu and Lorna as a practitioner for anyone who feels muscular or joint pain and I know there are many other issues she can help treat.
LC, Recruitment Consultant
My first experience of Amatsu in Lorna’s skilful and intuitive care was immensely powerful. I left the session with her feeling hugely relaxed and as if I was walking on air. Lorna explained everything very clearly and simply to me during the session, which I found very helpful as an Amatsu “newbie”. She is clearly hugely knowledgeable about Amatsu and loves what she does.
