Watsu: Cirque du Soleil for Your Body and Mind

As I waited at the side of the outdoor Watsu pool for Vince, my Watsu Therapist, I sat and thought about what was to come. Unlike most other massage therapies which take place on a massage table, a massage chair or on the floor, Watsu (derived from the words Water and Shiatsu) is special in that it is a type of massage that takes place in the water. Because of this unique format, anyone interested in trying Watsu should not have a fear of and must be totally comfortable in the water; they need to be capable of trusting and letting go; and they need to be comfortable with intimacy.

For as long as I can remember, I looked for any opportunity to spend time in the water…whether it was body surfing in the ocean, scuba diving with tropical fish and sea turtles or dancing under our backyard sprinklers as a child, water in any form was something I enjoyed…something fun. I don’t know, maybe it’s the Aquarius and Pisces in me, but I always had a special relationship with water.

When Vince arrived to the Watsu Pool, he was warm and disarming. After exchanging a few pleasantries, we entered the pool, and although the winter Sonoma air was quite cool, the pool felt familiar and soothing: held at a strict temperature of 98 degrees, the 4’ deep Watsu pool creates a womb-like environment for its visitors.

Once we entered the pool, Vince proceeded to put soft Velcro ‘floaties’ on my ankles, explaining that they would help me with my buoyancy during the session. We then stood together, I, with my back against the side of the pool, knees slightly bent in a squatting position and he, facing me in a similar stance. Taking slow, deep, breaths, we stabilized and synchronized our breathing patterns. He explained that it is really important to continue breathing throughout the session…that holding my breath would make it difficult to stay relaxed and benefit from the session. He also reminded me that ‘letting go,’ and letting him do the work was vital, for ‘helping him’ would be a hindrance and would make it difficult for him to do his job.

After a few more deep breaths, Vince inquired if I had any concerns, health issues, or fears and then reminded me of the level of intimacy that I would experience…that Watsu is more intimate than most other types of massage and that he would be cradling my body and holding me close throughout the treatment. After I assured him I was ready, we then embarked on an hour long journey that was unlike anything I had ever felt.

All sense of time was lost as Vince created an experience reminiscent of a Cirque du Soleil performance, featuring me as the main event. The structure of the session was truly organic, flowing from one move into another, seamlessly like a dance, making it easy to relax and forget about the minutes passing.

And indeed, Watsu was one of the most intimate treatments I had ever had. Cradling my body with one arm under my knees and the other around my back, while resting my head next to his on his shoulder, V...
