Experience a tranquil float in our 97°F, 18’ round, above-ground salt-water therapy pool.

Essential Element Watsu® is located north of Longmont, Colorado. Our aquatic therapy center offers Watsu® (which means water/shiatsu) and Healing Dance®. The recipient is gently supported by the practitioner while being guided through the warm water in graceful, fluid movements. Because the work is performed in water, where the effects of gravity on the mass of a body is minimized, the body is free to gently move and stretch in ways not possible on land.

Aquatic bodywork promotes a deep state of relaxation by working to quiet the sympathetic nervous system and to enhance the function of the parasympathetic nervous system.

The work also helps to decrease muscle tension and pain and offers to improve range of motion. Sessions provide relaxation as well as rehabilitation and are custom-tailored to meet the specific needs of each client. We also act as host for a variety of other water-based work by providing space for classes, trainings and rituals. Our facility is equipped with an Aquatic Access water-powered chair lift to provide access for individuals who are unable to use a ladder.

The pool is located at a private residence in a sunny, quiet country setting in a converted barn building.

Deb Evangelista’s love of water is rooted in one of her first memories, sitting in the shallow waters of a midwestern lake during her first camping trip as a child.

“Almost everything works again if you unplug it, including you.”
