Aquasoma® Foundation, Valencia (SPAGNA) 14-19/03 2023


FOUNDATION builds on the skills acquired in the INTRO module and provides all the principles and concepts to become an Aquasoma® Essentials Specialist.

This module aims to offer the recipients a rejuvenating experience by improving their flexibility, relaxation and breathing, as well as facilitating the release of mental overload.

The program covers techniques that facilitate self-regulation of the central nervous system, expanding work from the head and trunk to involve the upper and lower limbs.

  • Main topics covered in this module:

    • Understanding and working with the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system.
    • Changing paradigm: from a mechanical approach to a system repatterning.
    • Working by objectives: definition of objectives and achievement of results.
    • Interact with the fascia.
    • PNF.
    • The complete set of tools for an improved spinal mobility.
    • Main tools for better shoulder mobility.
    • Main tools for better hip mobility.
    • The last 3 principles of MKS watsu:
      • Be invisible / unintrusive
      • As a therapist I can only offer what I have
      • Intention.
    • The warrior stance: understanding and proper use.
    • Undulations, bringing the body into resonance.

      By the end of this module you will be able to deliver a comprehensive Aquasoma® session focused on the mental and physical well-being of your recipient, with a specific focus on techniques that facilitate the self-regulation of the central nervous system to calm excessive mental activity, while on the physical level we focus on the mobility of the spine, extending the work to the upper and lower limbs as well. The result for the recipient is an experience of deep calm and tranquility.
