AQUATIC THERAPY with Rebecca Czapnik
Aquatic Therapy is known by numerous names. You may have heard it called Aquatic Bodywork, Watsu, Waterdance, Water Massage, Jahara Technique, Healing Dance or something else. Created in the early 1980’s in California and Europe it offers profound healing across MIND, BODY and SPIRIT.
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 you may also be submerged underwater.
