What is Watsu Massage?
Combining Water and Massage for a True Mind/Body Water Therapy Experience
Aquatic Therapy Technique, Developed by Harold Dull in 1980
Watsu massage consists of moves and stretches done to the breath while being held and floated by a Watsu massage ® practitioner in body temperature water. Its use, like massage, for therapy and for stress and pain reduction make the Watsu ® the world’s first form of Thermal Aquatic Bodywork.
In addition the meditative states and connection it induces make Watsu massage ® more than bodywork. There is one characteristic that makes Watsu massage ® stand out from massage and so many other forms of bodywork is that it gives you the opportunity to go beyond the physical.
When your body relaxes so deeply – as it can in the warm weightlessness of Watsu massage ® – the mind can cease its chatter. And when the body and mind are quiet, what you’re left with is the fundamental essence of your being, making it a true mind/body experience.
