Watsu® ~ at Harbin Hot Springs.

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 relation 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.
Throughout the Watsu session awareness of the gentle rising and sinking of one's breath become heightened, becoming more and more relaxed as you allow yourself to sink into a deep meditative state. Watsu calms the central nervous system allowing the receiver to be brought to a place where healing can begin. Watsu is comforting and creates a safe place where one feels cared for and nurtured.
