What is Aquatic Bodywork?
Imagine yourself floating and supported in the water, being gently stretched and moved in circular or wave like patterns that liken the flow of a quiet mountain stream or the spiraling ebb and flow of the ocean.
This is Aquatic Bodywork. An inclusive term used to describe a variety of water relaxation forms scheduled through The Marsh Spa and offered in our 94 degree warm water pool.
Come sink into the comfort, as one of our four seasoned aquatic bodywork practitioners guide you through combinations of Watsu, Healing Dance, and Aquatic Integration, three different, but related water work forms that assist in increasing relaxation, spinal decompression, flexibility, emotional balance, and meditative calm.
