AQUASOMA® Sitting Positions

The Aquasoma® Sitting Positions watsu specialization course prepares you to use vertical positioning of your clients effectively and creatively, stabilizing them using your body.

You will unlock incredible possibilities for structural work and body exploration, including spinal twists, stretching, mobilization, massage, and acupressure.

The transition to seated positions is much more than a simple change of posture in your Watsu; it is an immersion into a world where verticality and gravity play a crucial role.

This approach radically transforms the Aquasoma® experience, allowing you to work in a completely three-dimensional environment.

This watsu specialization course will guide you through innovative practices that ensure safety, adaptability, and a significant improvement in your professional skills.

You will move beyond the traditional horizontal floating techniques typical of Watsu, which are often not the most effective or suitable, and discover the great potential of Aquasoma® aquatic bodywork.

This advanced watsu specialization course is designed to enrich and elevate the quality and effectiveness of your aquatic practice.
