W - Alternative Medicine and Complementary Therapies


Watsu is a form of water therapy developed by Harold Dull in the early 1980s. While practicing shiatsu; he noticed that he could deepen the effects of his therapy by working with his clients in warm water. Combining floating, cradling, stretching, shiatsu techniques, and dance-like movement, Watsu frees the spine, relaxes the muscles, and increases the flow of energy in the body.
