WATSU warm water therapy
Experience total relaxation while floating in warm (approx.98 degree) water. Through gentle movement and acupressure, Watsu brings a sense of deep relaxation to all parts of the body. Your head is gently cradled, and supported while the body is stretched, glided, turned, and gracefully floated by your therapist.
The word Watsu comes from combining the words "Water" and Shiatsu." Shiatsu is a traditional form of Asian bodywork on land and Water is a lovely warm wet substance that allows us to float free of gravity.
