The Restorative Relaxation Watsu is for the client who is seeking stress relief, and/or has a minor-to-moderate physical issue. Enjoy the magic of a warm water aquatic massage, floating weightlessly relieving stress, minor pain and stiffness, while I guide you swirling through the water, gently massaging and stretching your tight muscles! Periods of stillness provide integration between body and soul, leaving you in a most deeply relaxed state of being.
Your appointment includes a refreshing glass of filtered water to hydrate before entering the pool, intake about your health issues and what you would like to receive from your session (stress relief, deep relaxation, minor pain relief), orientation to aquatic massage, floatation devices fitting, time for dressing and a one-hour Watsu® session. Please plan on up to 90 minutes for your session.
This session is for clients who have limited mobility requiring additional time for intake, getting in and out of the pool, and dressing due to moderate-to-severe medical conditions or chronic injuries. (Please note that I do not treat acute injuries. Also, clients with more severe conditions should receive clearance from their physicians for warm water therapeutic massage.)
Your first appointment includes a thorough intake about your health issues

deep relaxation), orientation to aquatic massage,
floatation devices fitting, time for getting in and out of the pool, dressing, a one-hour Watsu®
session, detailed feedback and recommendations regarding posture, movement and exercises, and referrals to resources and other healthcare providers as deemed necessary. Please plan on up to 2 hours for your first session.
