Watsu is a unique form of bodywork that combines immersing the body in warm water with traditional Shiatsu massage. The premise of Watsu is that water takes weight off the vertebrae so they can be manipulated more easily.
Watsu is said to:
- Decrease muscle tension
- Promote a deep state of relaxation
- Increase mobility and flexibility
- Decrease stress
- Reduce pain
- Promote better sleep
A typical Watsu session is performed in water that is 92 to 94 degrees Fahrenheit, and involves a series of movements that the practitioner performs with one hand as he or she balances the recipient with the other. Expect to be gently rocked, stretched, turned, bent and arched. Watsu is offered at spas nationwide and in treatment centers as a form of physical therapy.
