The Anma Clinic


Having studied various forms of natural medicine for 10 years, Chris began training with Dr Chris Roworth (PhD) in 2016. Since then he has treated professional athletes, dancers and most recently world class circus artists within international productions of Cirque du Soleil.


As an ex-professional dancer and 'War Horse' puppeteer, Chris was regularly seeking quality treatment. Despite having access to a vast network of physiotherapists and chiropractors, he was never really satisfied until he was introduced to Dr Chris Roworth and Japanese Integrated Medicine. His recovery and rehabilitation all became exponentially faster so this became his ‘go-to’ if he ever needed it.


Chris became fascinated with the efficiency of this therapy. In 2015, his sister suffered complications during pregnancy. After hospital examinations the doctors concluded that her thyroid was not functioning properly and she would need life-long medication. With this diagnosis it became apparent that similar complications in the future could be expected. She decided to seek alternative advice and received a course of treatments in Japanese Integrated Medicine. Upon returning to Germany she stunned the doctors with a healthy thyroid - having not used any of the medication she was previously prescribed. She now has two happy and very healthy boys. It was this that inspired Chris to learn everything he could about Japanese Integrated Medicine. 

As well as running his own clinic in Kent, Chris often travels around the UK treating clients in their homes, offices and sometimes even film sets!

What is Japanese Integrated Medicine?


Japanese Integrated Medicine uses a variety - or integration - of therapies to treat the problem, but also to find and treat the cause of the problem. These include:

- Muscle Functioning tests and Applied Kinesiology

- Traditional Japanese Acupuncture/Acupressure

- Spine and Joint Adjustment

- Visceral Massage and Stimulation

- Cranial and Sacral Release

- Japanese Style Cupping and Gua Sha

- Shiatsu and Deep Tissue Massage


They are used simultaneously to readjust the body in order to achieve a faster and healthier natural recovery. 


Applying these therapies not only helps in treating acute sports injuries, but also life-style and occupational strains, mental health and wellbeing, nutritional health and many other issues. The goal being to significantly boost patient recovery, prevent future injury/illness and to greatly enhance overall health.
