The most innovative aquatic bodywork practice to restore your sense of self and to give you a profound feeling of peace and relaxation.
Watsu originated in the early 80’s led by Harold Dull at Harbin Hot Springsin California. After learning the techniques of Zen Shiatsu from Master Shizuto Masunaga, in Japan,Harold returned to California and applied the principleshe had learnedinto the aquatic dimension.
This unique practice is performed in water at body temperature. It combines elements of muscle and meridian stretching, joint mobilization, Shiatsu and intuitive movements.
The absence of gravity creates the perfect conditions for the body to freely explore its own movements providing access to a profound sense of peace and relaxation.
The body, gently supported, is able to release tensions and restore balance and vitality.
Watsu is a very powerful and effective method that is able to release stress at every level be it physical, mental or emotional.
