Watsu is an extremely gentle form of therapeutic aquatic bodywork conducted in warm water. It works at many levels, from the purely physical to the emotional and spiritual. Watsu has been shown to relieve pain, release tension and reduce stress. It increases the body’s range of motion, improves circulation and radiates warmth, promoting deep relaxation and wellbeing.
