This fourth edition of Watsu® Freeing the Body in Water by Harold Dull with the Worldwide Water Family updates the forms of Watsu, and the ways they are taught.

A chapter takes students through a complete Home Spa Watsu that can be done in a Jacuzzi. With even more contributions from instructors and other professionals it continues to be the primary sourcebook for Aquatic Bodyworkers. It includes chapters on Watsu with Children, Adapting Watsu for People with Special Needs, Watsu Pool Design and Care, and Core Tantsu. 208 pages (81/2 by 11" ). $27.50
This English edition appears concurrently with the edition comissioned in italy where its 300 colored illustrations were photographed. Step by step it presents the holds and moves of the new Core Tantsu that can be shared with anyone, a Tantsu for Partners, and those used in a professional practice. Fabrizio Dalle Pianne and Ateeka, who helped Harold develop the new Core Tantsu, have contributed insightful articles that investigate Tantsu's place among other disciplines that explore our movement within. 112 pages. $19.95
This book presents both a new Basic Watsu that focuses on accessing inner movement and the Explorer Path, a format for meetings to which three from any level of Watsu bring themes the book suggests, a move or a way of using their own body. The three explore as a team the principles and applications of their themes. Then each receives a complete session in a Round in which the first of the other two starts from the first side, the second continues from the second, and both float and stretch the receiver between them. A complete new Tandem Watsu is also introduced. 132 pages. $19.95
