In ancient Egypt water was compensation for the freedom that the soul
loses in its bodily form. Find, explore, and share
that freedom in the body in water.
Watsu is the world's first form of Aquatic Bodywork. Like massage, it can be applied professionally or shared with family and friends. Warm water, unconditional holding and treating the body as a whole, create space safe enough for the one in our arms to access every level of their being. Adapting Watsu's established form to each, and Free Flow, engages our whole being.
Watsu is the principle form of Aquatic Therapy for rehabilitation. It promotes deep relaxation, quieting the sympathetic and enhancing the parasympathetic nervous systems. It has profound beneficial effects for trauma, both physical and psycho-emotional, with therapeutic application for neuromuscular injuries, stress, chronic pain, discomfort during pregnancy, and special needs.
The Watsu Round brings people together. Take turns as holder, held and helper whose oversight frees the holder to explore with Watsu's basic moves, eyes closed, how deep we are connected. End each turn with Tandem Watsu, containing and stretching the one held between you. Bring everyone's creativity into play on the Explorer Path. Bring unconditional whole body holding to everybody.
