Watsu (Uccle)

Watsu Transition Flow (Uccle)

Intensive 3 day course in Uccle (Brussels)

Watsu (Water Shiatsu) is an aquatic bodywork modality developed in Harbin Hot Springs (Northern California) in the early 1980s. Watsu combines different forms of touch and massage with stretches and joint and spine mobilization. Among countless benefits, Watsu promotes blood and lymph circulation, optimizes the energy flow and helps alleviate many physical, psychological or emotional tensions.

The safe bond created during the session can repair or increase awareness, trust of and confidence in oneself, one another and the water. During a session of Watsu the head is always supported and the face is never submerged.

The course takes place in a pool whose little chlorinated water is heated at 34°C. Participants will learn how to use the principles of floatation in the water to provide a safe and efficient session. Focus will be on postural work of the giver, on the quality of the relationship that is created with the recipient as well as on the fluidity of movements and transitions. Students will be given a manual and a link to a video showing the full sequence learned during the course.

This course is the second part of Watsu 1 (first module of the professional training). It enables people who took Watsu Basic to expand their vocabulary in order to be able to give a complete sequence of about 50 minutes.

The course is taught in French but translation into English, Spanish or Italian is possible upon request.
