Definitions for "Watsu"
Developed in the early 1980's, Watsu began with the floating of individuals in a warm pool, applying stretches and moves. In the years since, Watsu has evolved into what many consider the most profound development in water body movement in our time. While other modalities are based on touch, the holding that working in water necessitates, brings the receiver to a new level of connection and trust. This, combined with the therapeutic benefits of warm water and the greater freedom of movement it encourages, creates a modality that can affect every level of our being. A helpful Watsu website:
