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.


You are continuously held as the practitioner moves you through gentle stretches, massage and trigger point work, releasing muscular and joint restrictions. With the weight off the vertebra and joints, water allows much greater movement and flexibility of the core musculature, spine and joints. This makes it possible for Watsu stretches to be quite different than any on land.

Watsu specifically for the mother-to-be during the childbearing year is also available.
