Historia
Watsupath™ es creado por Elisa Muñoz Blanco en el año 2007, tras iniciar en Asia su formación de Watsu®, Shiatsu en Agua. Desarrolla una red de conexión que pronto se convertiría en una plataforma de comunicación entre estudiantes, profesionales y docentes, no sólo de Watsu®, sino de todas las disciplinas de trabajo corporal acuático hasta entonces conocidas.

La actividad principal como Fisioterapeuta se empapa cada vez más de tintes acuáticos, desarrollándolos en su ciudad natal, Talavera de la Reina, y en varios centros de Madrid. Su actividad como Docente, desde Madrid, poco a poco, traspasa fronteras…Hungría, Reino Unido, Alemania, Italia, Estados Unidos, Argentina…conjugando en seco y en agua varias disciplinas al servicio del paciente y el alumno.

El término Watsupath™, que significa Sendero del Watsu®, es registrado en julio de 2012 junto con Terapia Cráneo Sacral en Agua™, como marca de publicidad, gestión y administración comercial, servicios de asesoría empresarial relativa al establecimiento de franquicias, venta al por menor, educación, formación, actividades deportivas y culturales, y servicios médicos.

En 2014 el Instituto de Formación Watsupath™ es creado e incorporado a los institutos de formación del Registro Internacional de Trabajo Corporal Acuático (Worldwide Aquatic Bodywork Registry), y su programa de formación es adecuado a los profesionales de la salud, acorde a los requisitos de la Comisión de Formación Continuada de las Profesiones Sanitarias, acreditado por el Sistema Nacional de Salud.
