Watsu is a form of body therapy performed in warm water. It is a gentle and nurturing modality where the client lies on their back in the water and is fully supported by the practitioner.In this position the practitioner is easily able to float the client through the water and access areas of tightness for massage, stretching, pressure pointing and joint mobilisation.The relaxing benefits of warm water combined with the skilled bodywork creates a holistic treatment that is deeply therapeutic for the body and soul.

FAQ WATSU

DO I NEED TO BE ABLE TO SWIM?
No! Not at all. You are fully supported by the practitioner in the water.

WILL MY HAIR GET WET?
The back of your head is resting in the water so your hair will get wet. We have hair drying facilities in the change room for after your session.

WILL I GET COLD?
The pool is enclosed and the water is between 33 and 35 degrees Celsius so you will stay toasty warm through the treatment.

WILL MY EARS BE IN THE WATER?
Your ears will be in the water so we suggest you bring earplugs if this is a problem for you.

HOW LONG IS A SESSION?
Each session is 45 minutes - 1 hour. You will need time to change before and after the treatment so please arrive a few minutes before your session.

WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE RECEIVING WATSU?
" Imagine the feeling of weightlessness through your body. Your eyes are closed and sounds are muffled. There is a letting go of time and space. There is nothing you need to do and nowhere you need to go.Your body surrenders and relaxes as you are rocked, massaged, stretched and held in the water. The world disappears, leaving just yourself and the experience of your body being in the water."

No wonder clients comment after receiving watsu that it the most blissful experience and they reached deep levels of relaxation.

IS WATSU SAFE DURING PREGNANCY?
Absolutely. Watsu is adapted according to the needs of the client.Pregnant women love the weightlessness of the water and experience a great sense of relief.

ARE ALL WATSU SESSIONS SIMILAR?
No. That is the beauty of watsu. Each session is uniquely different. For each session people arrive with a new set of experiences and challenges in their body. So one week a session may incorporate slow rhythmical movements and the next week more spiral dance like movements.
