Water Therapy

Swiss Water Massage



Swiss Water Massage feels like a table massage while floating in warm mineral water.

Your body is safely supported with floating devices, with the water taking over your entire weight.

This produces a great sense of comfort and freedom, ideal to relax and rejuvenate.

Read Here how Swiss Water Massage is different from Watsu.

It is a unique blend of physical therapy techniques adapted to the aquatic environment.

With the elimination of gravity, the recipient is in an ideal position to receive therapeutic touch.

Gentle joint mobilization and the stretching of muscles and soft tissues are easily accomplished.
Spinal and other joint adjustments may occur spontaneously, as the body-mind-spirit is finding its natural balance.

The therapist deeply kneads your tissues, moves your bones and rocks your limbs in a soothing way.

Variations of effleurage techniques are skillfully woven into this deeply cleansing liberating experience.

Beyond the physical benefits a number of inner shifts occur:

Holding patterns dissolve and greater freedom of movement is enjoyed.
There is more ease and lightness, mental burdens and worries seem to evaporate as you let go and savor the treatment.

WATSU® Water Massage


Watsu is a gentle form of body therapy performed in our warm mineral waters, (around 95 degrees).  It combines elements of massage, joint mobilization, shiatsu, muscle stretching and dance. The guest is continuously supported while being floated, cradled, rocked and stretched. The deeply relaxing effects of our warm mineral water and nurturing support, combine with Watsu's movements, stretches, massage and point work, to create a bodywork with range of therapeutic benefits and potential healing on many levels. 

Moments of stillness alternate with rhythmical flowing moments, which free the body in ways impossible on land. The warm mineral waters relax the muscles and support the spine. With this support and without the weight of the body, the spine, joints and muscles can be manipulated and freed in a way unique to water work. The effects include very gentle, yet deep stretching and a release of muscular and joint restrictions, along with a state of deep relaxation, which encourages the release of stress and tensions.
