The healing power of movement in the water.
"The practitioner 'dances' the receiver, who has an experience of grace and beauty, sometimes leading to deeper emotional releases. Silent music, consisting of rhythmic impulses of pressure, touch and movement played upon the body's proprioceptors. The dance is between the subliminal message within each movement and the receiver's subconscious mind. That which has slowed down or ceased to move within the psyche is inspired to awaken into playful participation. Thus, the healing comes from within."
Alexander George

Absolutely magical experience, where time and space dissolved, like a fish, like a baby like a bird, like everything and nothing at the same time, delicious floating in the water! Thanks sweet Marlies i felt really save in your hands, so easy to surrender! I feel so relaxed now! Yeah happy day! Watsu watersession with Marlies!


Absolutely magical experience...
Felt, like
Floating in the infinite vast water space,
Lead by a guiding hand.
Relaxing into it,
Submerged into water, becoming one.
So subtle, gentle, delicate.
Thank you!

Watsu is echt een fantastische ervaring! Bijna alsof je weer even in de baarmoeder bent, super ontspannend. Marlies doet het heel goed, ik voel mij gedragen en voel alle ruimte om over te geven aan haar kundige manier van werken.
