The Amatsu Concept of Health

There is a distinct cultural difference between the Eastern and Western view and values of health and health care. To practice Amatsu it is important to understand the basics of how Asians view health and institutional health care. The point where illness is defined is substantially different. In the West, people tend to define illness through the diagnosis of a Western doctor/physician. A primary value in Asian culture is that good health and longevity are valued as the most important part of life, with prevention of disease at the foundation of it. In the East, treatment takes place much earlier in the health care process, with East Asian medical providers looking towards prevention and early diagnosis as the measure of illness. Once noticeable symptoms appear, the illness is viewed as very advanced in Asian medicine. The objective of East Asian medicine is to try to diagnose in the early stages before symptoms appear. Treatment is much easier and recovery is quicker. As well, early detection prevents the spreading of illness.


Amatsu Revealed

Throughout history, humans have been fascinated with extending their lifespan. One inquiry is why certain people become ill while others remain healthy. The explanation is that individuals who maintain good health, whether by design or chance, adhere to a suitable lifestyle that encourages a robust immune system, excellent physical health, and cognitive aptitude, precisely what Amatsu Therapy strives to facilitate.
Through Amatsu Therapy, multiple groups of disharmonies [daily health issues] can be categorized and dealt with on an individual basis, returning health care back to a personalized event. There is only one of you.

An Amatsu therapy doctor specializes in looking for the “Why”… not what. The What can be defined as the huge range of medical diseases named by allopathic medicine. For example: migraine headaches, PMS, Parkinson’s disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia and so on… It is easy to name a disease, but where does it come from? And why are you experiencing it and not the next person?

Why do certain people have certain complaints and not others? Amatsu therapy looks for patterns or a root cause that must be addressed. Dr. Perez is able to recognize the internal problem by the outer manifestations and categorize it into logical causes by implementing the Five Elemental, Eight Parameters and Four Diagnostic methods. Headaches, for example, are broken down into a subcategory looking at its nature, timing, location and intensity. It can come from a weakened digestion or a non-regulating, stagnation in the Liver Organ System. Both Patterns are completely different, but possibly related. The patterns are as unique as the person experiencing them.
Amatsu is based just as much on prevention as it is on being a highly effective long-term healing system assisting chronic health issues that afflict so many people. Amatsu therapy has the ability to promote and maintain a standard of health which comes from your own ability to regulate and ward-off disease factors. Each of us is a microcosmic unit of elements, emotions and spirit. By helping you to balance and harmonize these three aspects, robust health and wellness can be attained. Herbal Formulas can be utilized indefinitely because they are just that, herbs, found growing naturally on the earth, natures healing gift to all. Here at Amatsu Clinic we always start with a clean slate to give the body time to rebalance from the effects of long term over the counter drugs and prescriptions. This always starts with a comprehensive detox that we guide you through.
Disease prevention is becoming a more accepted and viable way of thought, and for sustained health and longevity. Today for most westerners, disease prevention is still quite a hard concept to comprehend. Convincing the average person to take preventive health measures years before possibly becoming ill with a serious disease is not an easy task

For thousands of years the Oriental Physicians believed and focused on taking measures to ward off disease by keeping a patient’s organ systems harmonized, balanced and strong. They would only accept money while the patient was healthy. If the patient became ill, no money was accepted. The Oriental Medicine Physician would then work very hard to restore the patient’s health. Sadly this concept was reversed in the rest of the world with endless amounts of money spent on health insurance waiting for the diagnosis of a serious illness.

Dr. Perez knows that if all of the Five Organ Systems are working harmoniously, disease will not be able to penetrate. All of the modalities used by Dr. Perez at the clinic on a regular basis is an excellent way to help regulate, maintain and promote the organ and meridian system networks and create a powerful resistance factor. There is so much yet to be learned in the west about this ancient healing modality. We should all try to follow this ancient healing method of prevention and use Amatsu Therapy as a new standard for health and longevity.
Amatsu therapy is a holistic approach to healthcare that aims to restore balance and harmony within the body by addressing physical, emotional, and energetic imbalances. When it comes to idiopathic and autoimmune health issues, Amatsu therapy focuses on identifying and addressing the underlying causes of these conditions.

Idiopathic health issues are those whose cause is unknown or unclear, and Amatsu therapy approaches them by looking at the body as a whole rather than simply treating the symptoms. Through manual therapy and modalities, Amatsu practitioners aim to restore balance to the body's structural and energetic systems, promoting overall health and well-being.

Autoimmune health issues, on the other hand, occur when the body's immune system attacks healthy cells and tissues, mistaking them for foreign invaders. In addition, Amatsu Therapy takes a multi-faceted approach to address autoimmune conditions, which may involve improving and reducing systemic inflammation, dietary changes, lifestyle changes and supporting the body's natural healing processes.

Ultimately, Amatsu therapy aims to support the body's innate ability to heal by promoting balance and harmony within its physical, emotional, and energetic systems. By addressing the "WHY" or underlying imbalances, Amatsu therapy can help to alleviate symptoms and improve overall health and well-being.

  • I have been seeing Dr.Perez for over 8 years now. He has transformed my health and life in ways I could not have imagined! When I first came to him I could barely keep food down, had low energy and inflammation throughout my body. Within months I was able to gain my life back. I got pregnant shortly after and he supported me throughout the 9 months. Even thought doctors told me I was high risk and would have pre-term labour I delivered my child naturally and right at 40-weeks! He supported me once again with my second. My son (2 years old) was being monitored for poor bone growth with medical professionals has now grown substantially since seeing Dr.Perez and is continuing to thrive. My family and I continue to see Dr.Perez for maintenance on our health. I would highly recommend his services for any age! Thank you for all your help!

  • I can certainly see, even in one visit, how you can transform lives. I thank you for your strenaI was diagnosed with autoimmune disease and was told there was no cure. I was struggling with constant pain and fatigue. That is until I met Dr. Perez. He identified the root cause, gave me a dressing down and within a few visits, my autoimmune disease was gone, and I felt like a new person. I don’t claim to understand what he actually did. I left it up to him and it just worked beyond my wildest expectations. I’ve got my life back. My kids have their father back and life just keeps moving forward in a positive way. I cannot thank you enough Dr. Perez. gth, your kindness and wisdom.

  • I first met Dr. Perez when I was in my mid fifties and I had been bucked off a horse. I had been to western medical doctors and specialists because of the resulting injury, with absolutely no success. Debilitating pain! Having Dr.Perez come into my life was game changing or should I say life altering! I am now 68 and I have been pain free for over 10 years. No high blood pressure pills, no high cholesterol, no weight problems, no nothing! Just one really healthy woman. Arthritis does run in my family, my mother my grandmother and due to his cleansing program I have no inflammation in my joints and therefore no arthritis. I have referred countless people to him, some who have had unsuccessful back surgery or are waiting for surgery and after his treatments, problem solved! I have referred a lady who was confined to a wheel chair from a stroke who now is enjoying a rich life walking again. I have referred people with one kidney that western medicine was priming for daily dialysis and transplants and now have a perfectly functioning healthy kidney. Western medicine has been around for 150 years but eastern medicine has been around for 1000+. Dr. Perez is at the top of his game in the Eastern medicine world and I am so thankful every day of my life that he is in it!

  • I want to keep this very short and very sweet as time is not replaceable and you deserve to get on with the healing;

    I have been blessed to be able to call Dr P my friend, my life changed for the better close to 18 years ago and I have never ever looked back. The knowledge and lessons that have been imprinted upon me are priceless and in these times I can clearly see the difference from then and now and it is truly a blessing.

    For those who traveled the same path (the typical North American system) and those who have been touched by Dr P the outcome on and of life is undeniably different.

    There are really no words and there is really no amount of money you can put on this type of information and healing.

    Do something real for yourself and book an appointment, and watch your life change for the better!
