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.
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.
