ABOUT WATSU:

Watsu is an extremely gentle form of therapeutic aquatic bodywork conducted in warm water.  It works at many levels, from the purely physical to the emotional and spiritual. Watsu has been shown to relieve pain, release tension and reduce stress. It increases the body’s range of motion, improves circulation and radiates warmth, promoting deep relaxation and well-being.

ABOUT HALLIWICK:

Halliwick is an approach to teaching all people, in particular those with physical and/or learning difficulties, to participate in water activities, to move independently in water, and to swim.


It is based on a belief in the benefits that can be derived from activities in water, and sets out the fundamentals necessary for their learning. These benefits include physical, personal, recreational, social and therapeutic aspects.


The Concept has influenced hydrotherapy techniques and has been developed into specific therapeutic exercises.


HALLIWICK FOUNDATION COURSE:

This 4 day intensive course covers the theory behind the method, focusing on The Halliwick Ten-Point-Programme and implementation of the theory in the water.


Upon completion of this course students receive an internationally recognised certificate of completion issued by the International Halliwick Association (IHA).
