Watsu 1 Class in Taiwan (October 12-17, 2016)
Course description
Watsu means Water Shiatsu ("finger pressure" in Japanese). In the early 1980s Harold Dull, (director of the Harbin School of Shiatsu and Massage in northern California), began to apply the stretches and moves of Zen Shiatsu in warm water. In the years since, with the help of countless others in classes, clinics and spas around the world, Watsu has evolved into a leading edge Aquatic Therapy.

Watsu is a gentle form of body therapy performed in warm water, 33 to 36°C. It combines elements of massage, joint mobilization, shiatsu, muscle stretching and dance. The receiver is continuously supported while being floated, cradled, rocked and stretched. The deeply relaxing effects of warm water and nurturing support, combined with Watsu's movements, stretches, massage and point work, to create a bodywork with a range of therapeutic benefits and potential healing on many levels.

Watsu as an aquatic technique endorses the connection between the provider and the receiver, as well as the synchronization of breathing pattern and rhythmic movements. The provider and the receiver share the joy and freedom in their graceful moves in water. Most of Watsu Providers are physical therapists, occupational therapists or aquatic exercise related professionals.
