Aquatic Therapy

AQUATIC THERAPY

Aquatic Therapy (often called Watsu or Aquatic Bodywork) was created in the early 1980’s in California and Europe. Resting back into the arms of the practitioner you are floated, stretched, cradled, massaged and moved through warm water (34.5°C). With the use of a nose clip there is also the option of being submerged underwater. Rebecca is trained in numerous Aquatic Therapy practices including Watsu®, WaterDance™️, Fluid Presence® and Aquatic Integration™️.

  • Muscle, joint and spine care
  • Reduced anxiety and stress

AT A DEEPER LEVEL

Water is a profound conduit for healing, and sessions may offer relief on multiple levels: physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual. Its easeful flow softens pain and gently releases anxiety. If it is what you need, the water can be a place to explore your emotional world and the deep yearnings of your heart. Because something happens when we are held and witnessed. Core limiting beliefs often surface and dissolve. We are invited to drop deeper into ourselves accessing a state of presence that is elusive in everyday life.

Self inquiry, conscious communication, deep listening, boundaries and truth are of great importance to Rebecca. She brings an authentic curiosity, respect and perceptive understanding of these matters to her sessions. And uses techniques such as Focusing and Non-Violent Communications to help each person fathom their experience of Aquatic Therapy.

MY CLIENTS

Anyone can benefit from Aquatic Therapy and the healing properties of warm water. My clients include stressed professionals, people suffering with physical injury, arthritis and fibromyalgia, pregnant women, meditators, anxious students and parents. Those who love float tanks are amazed by Aquatic Therapy. The level of ease and healing is profound.

“The water's gifts are profound, offering learning and healing around trust, surrender, softening, fear, intimacy, creative flow, birth, death, our interconnectedness and receiving greater love. As a guide, I hold a space of compassion and emergence inviting you to connect deeply with your felt experience in this moment. From that place so much is revealed.”
