Watsu® I Training: 7th to 12th of April 2023

Take time from everyday life and immerse yourself in this unique, calming, and enriching training experience at The Australian Institute of Aquatic Bodywork's beautiful new training centre in Perth this September, and learn how to give a 1 hour Watsu® session.

This intensive 6-day course is intended for anyone interested in warm water therapy, whether it is for personal enjoyment and self-development, or for professional development.

After participating in this course, students typically report that not only have they gained wonderful new practical aquatic therapy skills, but that they were also left with a lasting sense of well-being, a sense of connectedness, reduced stress levels, and profound and memorable experience which they will treasure for the rest of their lives.

"I was in a bubble full of healing and love. Anyone can do this and everyone should.” - Watsu Student

Watsu® is a form of aquatic bodywork used for deep relaxation and is characterised by one-on-one sessions in which a practitioner gently cradles, moves, stretches, and massages a receiver in warm water. This beautiful practice shows a breadth of physical and mental health benefits both for Watsu clients and practitioners.

“What unfolded was pure bliss, like nothing I have ever experienced before.” - Watsu Student

The Watsu® I training is designed to welcome new aspiring practitioners to their professional certification journey as well as allows existing practitioners and Watsu® students to fine-tune and build upon existing skills.
