Like Watsu, it begins with the client held in the practitioners arms above the surface of the water, where the body is cradled, stretched, and relaxed. In Waterdance, the client is then given nose clips and gradually and gently taken entirely under the water. Once freed from the bounds of head support and gravity, the clients's body can be move, stretched, and worked in literally unlimited ways. Water dance incorporates elements of massage, Aikido, dolphin and snake movements, rolls, somersaults, inversions, dance and much more. The effect of this work include deep physical release and can induce deep states of relaxation, meditation, bliss and even visions.
