The holding and floating used by the therapist brings the receiver to a new level of connection and trust. This, combined with the therapeutic benefits of warm water and the greater freedom of movement it encourages, creates a modality that can effect every level of our being, our body and our mind.
Watsu is a profoundly relaxing therapy. Movements are combined with gentle stretching, acupressure points and Shiatsu massage, harmonizing the energy system. We use the lightness of the body in water to free the spinal vertebrae, rotate joint articulations and elongate muscles in ways impossible on land. These rhythmic, dance-like movements are performed in harmony with the breath to inspire the natural regeneration of body and mind.
Watsu decreases anxiety, improves sleep patterns, ameliorates healing and immune system response and stimulates internal organs. It is specifically suitable to counteract the harmful effects of everyday stress. Watsu may be offered as a wellness program to enhance well-being but it also provides relief from a variety of ailments. It is used as an alternative healing treatment to aid those with physical disabilities or nervous system disorders, muscle diseases and emotional trauma. Watsu is effective as part of rehabilitational programs.
Watsu has been recently introduced to Hungary. Therapists complete an extensive international certification process.
