Wikipedia states “Watsu, a portmanteau of water and shiatsu, is a form of body massage performed while lying in warm water (around 35 °C or 95 °F). The receiver of Watsu treatment is continuously supported by the therapist while he or she rocks and gently stretches the body. Because it is performed in the water, the body is free to be manipulated and stretched in ways impossible while on the land.”
Watsu around the World states “Many come out of a Watsu saying they were more relaxed than they have ever been. Some say it was one of the most powerful experiences in their life.”
Beyond Body Work states “Watsu is used frequently, often weekly, during pregnancy, especially during the last trimester. No other therapy offers the profound relaxing weightlessness and comfort for both mother and child. The 96 degree water is safe and perfect for the unborn child. Both mother and child experience a new freedom and expansion benefiting both.”
Watch this Youtube video to get a peek. It is a bit of a sales job but a good into.
“Six teenage girls, six pregnancy’s, six babies brought into the world as you watched from home. What was it like to give birth on MTV? How has life changed since the camera’s stopped rolling? What does the future hold for these young women and their children?” this is what Dr. Drew ask while promising to answer it all in this one-hour program.
