There are many different forms of bodywork designed to be done in water. Watsu is a Japanese form of shiatsu which is done in the water and is designed to help alleviate chronic pain and other acute conditions related to the emotional and physical levels. It is possible to restore the flow of energy in the body through alterations in the pathways the body uses. Watsu is used in order to return yourself to a place of calm and relaxation and to restore the harmony and balance you need in your life. This is necessary in order to feel right because you will increase your circulation and other bodily functions. It is important to remember that this is a form of prevention more than it is a cure.
The prevention of worse physical and emotional problems is possible when you have greater control over the pathways in the body and you are able to make sure that the flow of energy will produce the right results in terms of the organs and muscular tissues getting the fluids they need because you will have opened the right pathways for them. This is a daily exercise which will help you to also stimulate your metabolism which will help you to make better use of the food you will eat every day. Without the exercise you will be able to choose something else to open up the pathways, but it will have to be a daily activity rather than just sporadic.
