What is Watsu used for? Watsu is done in 94-96 degrees Fahrenheit water and buoyancy takes the weight of gravity off the vertebrae so they can be manipulated more easily. Watsu is also said to help decrease muscle tension, joint mobilization and promote a deep state of relaxation. It has been shown to increase mobility and flexibility, decrease stress, reduce pain and promote better sleep. Health concerns that have been successfully treated by Watsu include injury to the spinal cord or brain through trauma, stroke, or a degenerative condition such as ALS, cerebral palsy, Parkinson’s disease; arthritis, back and neck pain, Fibromyalgia and other chronic pain states; and mood disorders such as generalized anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder. Watsu has also benefited patients who have undergone surgery and have subsequently developed post-operative pain or limited range of motion.

A typical Watsu® session starts with the client filling out an intake form letting the Practitioner know of their recent history of injuries, surgeries and emotional or physical injury. The client will then be guided to use the shower and enter the pool. The session starts after the Practitioner and client come to agreement as to intention for the time they spend together. Some clients wish for peace and tranquility, others want a safe place to feel their emotions. As the session begins hydrostatic pressure acts like hundreds of gentle fingers massaging the whole body from every direction. The body is held, rocked, stretched and nurtured. Meridian stretches and point work is all a part of the Shiatsu in warm water. The session ends with a feeling of wholeness a sense of coming back into self.

Cost of the session is $75 per hour. We take Pay Pal and Visa MasterCard.

If this is your first time please fill out the intake form.
