The therapist
Water has always been an important factor in my life. I love swimming and sailing (preferably at sea). By profession I am a writer, translator, and editor. But sitting behind a computer all day long isn't very appealing to me. I also want to work with people, work with my hands. So at the end of the 90-ies I became a qualified and licensed ZenShiatsu therapist. When I learned about Watsu in 2004 ' a combination of Shiatsu and warm water ' I didn't hesitate
for one moment to register for my first Watsu training. I've been giving Watsu sessions for many years now, and I'm always happy to see people relax during the gentle, fluid movements in the water. I invite you to give yourself a treat with this unique, caring treatment.
