Join world-renowned therapeutic water therapist, Toru Ogasawara for the Ultimate Watsu (water shiatsu) experience in the award winning One&Only Reethi Rah Spa Watsu pool – unique and the first in the Maldives.
Toru is an internationally renowned body work Watsu, aquatic bodywork, breathing exercise and meditation trainer. He is the Founder and President of Okinawa Watsu Center in Japan.
Focusing on aquatic bodywork, breathing exercises and meditation, Watsu supports rhythmic, flowing movements which work to activate pressure points, mobilize joints and gently stretch your muscles; encouraging total wellbeing and harmony.
Toru Ogasawara describes Watsu as a “moving, flowing meditation in the water”. Watsu Therapy is performed in 36-degree water addressing the whole body, energy system and emotional balance, using pressure, positional alignment and stretching to facilitate integration of the mind, body and spirit.
Healing Water Dance is a graceful and powerful form of aquatic bodywork, conducted in warm water, integrating elements of Watsu, Water dance, Trager work, movement and dance. This therapy reflects how water and the body naturally move together. Healing Dance takes advantage of the full three-dimensionality of the water with broad dynamic movements through a constant flow, freedom and lightness.
Blocked energies are opened up by more than thirty hydrodynamic waves and spirals, as well as various spatial mandalas in the form of circles, figure 8’s and releases, freeing and re-animating the body.
