Watsu

Watsu is a passive form of aquatic therapy that incorporates the principles of Zen Shiatsu in our heated therapy pool. Supported by flotation devices and the therapist, your body will float just below the surface as the therapist moves you through a series of movements to release blocked energy paths that correspond with acupuncture points. Watsu promotes circulation, healing, deep relaxation and increased range of motion.

  • How to upgrade your workout routine to a wellness routine

    by Kayla Kulans | Oct 01, 2019
    We accept that many things need the occasional break. We reboot out computers, we rotate tires, we take small children to quiet spots when they’re over stimulated, we rotate crops to give soil a break. We do this because we know that it’s better to provide these breaks than to wait until the computer collapses, the tires blow, the child has a meltdown from over stimulation, or we deplete the soil beyond usability. And yet, we often insist that our bodies and minds go, go, go until they collapse.
