Watsu is an aquatic version of shiatsu. It combines the benefits of being in water with those of the famous Japanese massage technique. This discipline is very popular in spas, due to its positive effects on stress and personal development. It is a pleasurable activity with the added bonus of relaxing your muscles.
In these sessions, you are always accompanied by a therapist. The goal is to relax in water under the practitioner’s guidance.
The practitioner moves you around the pool while performing a number of stretching movements and activating various acupuncture points.
