This therapy involves the manipulation of the body in a warm body of water, which reduces pain, and ultimately opens the meridians for a better flow of energy throughout the body. Swimming not only gives a pleasure experience but also can be beneficial for health in numerous ways.
Watsu – Water Shiatsu
Watsu is form of body therapy performed in warm water, around 94 Degrees Fahrenheit. Elements of massage, joint mobilization, shiatsu, muscle stretching and dance are all included in this form of therapy. The patient is continuously supported while being floated, cradled, rocked and stretched. Watsu involves the deeply relaxing effects of warm water combined with Watsu’s movements, stretches, and massage create a treatment with a range of therapeutic benefits and potential healing on many levels.
The warm water relaxes the muscles and supports the spine. With this support and without the weight of the body, the spine, joints and muscles can be manipulated and freed in a way that is unique to Aquatic Therapy only. The effects include a very gentle, yet deep stretching and a release of muscular and joint restrictions, along with a state of deep relaxation, which encourages the release of stress and tensions. Watsu is quite popular these days and is taken up by many people these days as it has incredible health benefits.
