Watsu

Watsu is a gentle form of bodywork that draws on elements of massage and Zen shiatsu. It is performed in water – an almost weightless, three-dimensional environment – making it possible for to move and stretch in deeply beneficial ways that are simply not possible to achieve on the massage table. The water is kept warm – around 92° – for comfort and to facilitate deeper relaxation.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture focuses on correcting energetic imbalances in the body and restoring a healthful flow of our lifeforce energy – known as Chi or Qi – through the body’s energetic  system, or meridians.

There are points or nodules along the energetic pathways, called acupuncture points, and stimulated these serves to release energetic blockages and areas of stagnation, encouraging energy to flow freely once more.   This stimulation is accomplished by insertion of very fine needles into the points.
