Aqua Therapy

Published Date: Thursday, January 11, 2018


Watsu was developed in the early 1980s at Harbin Hot Springs, California by Harold Dull. In this form of aquatic therapy, the therapist supports the client through a series of flowing movements and stretches designed to induce deep relaxation as well as provide various therapeutic benefits. The movements combine elements of massage, shiatsu, dance, muscle stretching and joint mobilization.

Watsu is used to treat a wide range of orthopedic and neurological issues, either as a standalone therapy or a complement to a land-based therapeutic program
