WATSU! Aquatic Bodywork

Watsu is a passive form of images (1)aquatic bodywork therapy that involves the watsu therapist supporting the client as they are gently moved through warm water in graceful, fluid movements that alternate with moments of stillness. This unique & powerful water massage integrates Shiatsu, joint mobilization and stretching which together encourage the freeing of the spine and the softening the mind~ allowing deep peace & relaxation to naturally arise. Being floated gravity free in warm water provides for a restorative environment for the body to dramatically unwind and release physical, emotional, and mental holding patterns.

The deep relaxation Watsu induces can lead to dramatic changes in the autonomic nervous system.  Through quieting the sympathetic and enhancing the parasympathetic nervous systems, Watsu has profound effects on the neuromuscular system.  In essence, the effects of Watsu lead to enhancement of the parasympathetic nervous system~ where body/mind/soul self- healing occurs.
