Watsu was originally founded by Harold Dull at Harbin Hot Springs, USA in 1980. He subsequently evolved the techniques over the following years to incorporate aspects of Zen Shiatsu and the treatment has now evolved into what many consider the most profound development in bodywork in our time.
Many benefits can be attributed to the Watsu treatment. It is known to: help alleviate insomnia and anxiety; relieve stress; improve posture; and it is also claimed to increase superficial circulation and lymphatic function. Further, it can strengthen the immune system and aid digestion and respiratory difficulties. These benefits are achieved in part because the flotation enabled by water takes the weight off the vertebrae and helps to relax the muscles. As a consequence, the therapist can move the body in ways that would be impossible on land. The effect is far greater freedom and mobility in the body.

Thank you so much for yet another beautiful Watsu session yesterday morning. One of many that I have enjoyed receiving from you for the past 2 years. You really have created a haven of peace and tranquillity and it is so good to be there to escape from the hustle and bustle of busy city life in Liverpool. And being the only Watsu provider who owns there own pool in this country is an added bonus. You really are a true healer Clare. I have cerebral palsy and since having watsu with you, I feel so much freer and less rigid which is one of the symptons of having cp. You really do care so much for your clients Clare and I love you for it. Will be having many more Watsu sessions with you and I am sure other people will when they discover how amazing it is. Thank you so much for everything you have done for me sweetheart.
Love and light
