What is Watsu?

The power of Watsu bodywork in warm water is it’s enhanced ability to help you find greater freedom through rhythmic floating and stretching.  The patterns of movement are chosen to improve the body’s cardio respiratory, metabolic, musculoskeletal, neurological, and psychosocial systems all while the client remains passive.

Any cause of tension or trauma is lost in a new sense of consciousness.

Watsu allows for:

  • Increased mobility
  • Greater range of motion
  • Increased energy
  • Decreased stress & pain
  • Improved sense of well-being
