Aquatic bodywork is exquisite touch and movement performed in a warm-water pool. It is now part of spa leisure and alternative health services, in addition to its physical therapy applications. In these different settings, it has different purposes and values.
I call my aquatic bodywork practice AquaPoetics: an aquatic art form designed to encourage creative inspiration and personal transformation. It draws on Watsu® and its derivatives, and focuses on encouraging each person to dance the body poetic, to listen to their own body's poetry.
Update 2016: Weblog in process of revision. Thank you for your interest. Sara Firman
Aquapoetics: a poetic approach to water as a medium for creative expression and healing; and the name of my warm-water aquatic bodywork practice. This name is unique to my practice and should not be used in any other context. Thank you.
