What is Aquatic Bodywork?
Aquatic Bodywork has been around since the 1980's and has been spreading rapidly. What all of its several branches have in common is that they are practiced in warm water, such as found in therapy pools, mineral springs and spas. Additionally, each technique is holistic; it acknowledges that a human being is not only physical, but emotional, energetic and spiritual, as well.

Water Dance Overview

Learn who founded Water Dance, how people can be safely submerged and what they experience in the subaquatic world.

WaterDance® (also known as WATA and WasserTanzen) is a dynamic movement therapy above and below water. It was developed in 1987 by Peter Schröter and Arjana C. Brunschwiler. The practitioner follows the breath of the receiver, signaling manually before each submerging. The partner wears a noseclip and is guided into the weightless, three-dimensionality of the underwater world. Extensions, stretches, flexions, dolphin-like movements and snake-like rhythms release not only on the physical level, but allow the deepest states of relaxation and meditation to be experienced, sometimes even returning us to memories of the womb.

The dive reflex activates and the breath and heart rate slow down. It is a profound therapy, in which time and space lose their meaning. Life and being become a flow. Regression often occurs in which wounds from the past can be effortlessly processed. WaterDance offers us, on the one hand, a strong and powerful therapeutic instrument, and on the other hand, a form of energy work and bodywork. Play, surrender, flow and harmony all combine in a unique manner in the warm water.

How Healing Dance was developed

In 1990, while a resident at Harbin Hot Springs in northern California, Alexander George studied Watsu from its founder, Harold Dull. Following the course he began experimenting and improvising in the Harbin warm pool. Alexander was influenced not only by his professional background in ballet and Trager Work, but also by the ways in which the body and water... more  

What is Healing Dance?

Healing Dance is a powerful and beautiful aquatic technique developed by Alexander George in 1993. It consists of ten trainings. In seven, techniques are taught in which the receiver remains on the surface of the water. The three remaining trainings are subaquatic, featuring a wide variety of submergings. The guiding philosophy of the work is that...  more  

How does Healing Dance work?

Healing Dance has many aspects, all based on the healing power of movement. The practitioner establishes an empathetic connection with the receiver and is trained to mirror any incipient kinetic impulses. He establishes a rhythmic field at the beginning of the session through his breath, movement and state of mind.  He looks for the rhythm of awareness..

healing Dance

This is a powerful and beautiful technique developed by Alexander in 1993, incorporating elements of Watsu, WaterDance, Trager Work, and dance. It is open to those who have completed Watsu II. The Healing Dance is primarily based on wave movements for the entire body, and also includes quiet embraces, releases, tractions, smooth transitions and massage, all woven together in an unending flow. The guiding philosophy of the work is that movement is the "medicine" and in the experience of "received dance" the healing process in the our body is activated. Students learn to create the sensation of lightness and flying, to generate a rhythmic field, to find the various "rhythms of awareness" for clients and to even channel movement. Physical and emotional blockages are resolved in the polarity between freedom and security. Advanced body mechanics are taught to create movements of greater subtlety and sensitivity. As the vocabulary of movements expands (more than seventy new moves) students become more confident to improvise and better respond to the needs of the client.

There is no charge. I will be sharing my teaching manuals for Watsu, The Healing Dance and WaterDance. Feel free to browse and download any or all of the articles. Use them for your private study or incorporate them into your trainings, if you teach. Also for teachers are a few articles on teaching this work. A brief description of each technique follows with links to fuller explanations, and a table of contents for the actual documents. Enjoy!

Some Thoughts on Teaching

This has been a thirty-five year dance. The adolescent and 20 year old leapt and turned across classrooms and stages, conquesting movement, intoxicated with movement. The 30 year old balletmaster guided onward the next generation of dancers, passing on his craft and devotion. The massage therapist leaned and dragged across tables, rediscovering touch, making love to the body. The 40 year old re-incarnated as an aquatic bodyworker in warm water pools, rising and sinking with Watsu, waving and spiraling with the Healing Dance, and then diving and surfacing with WaterDance. Now the 50 year old teacher of aquatic bodywork is passing on his techniques and insights. My desire has always been to give the "good" movement, that which nurtures, opens the doors to freedom, and inspires dance. It’s been a love affair with the living, breathing body, with full and glorious movement, and with benevolent and caring Spirit, guiding us all homeward. This is my invitation.

Preparation Dedicate the course to spirit. Be still to know that you desire that the purposes of spirit be served. Ask beforehand in meditation/prayer and at the outset of the course, inviting the group to join you, for the Light to accompany and guide you all. Collective prayer is sweeter to Deity than requests for self, alone. You need to be a part of the process, not apart from it. "May we be open to receive the gifts of spirit this week." Return to the dedication alone and with the group throughout the course. Here is an example of a personal dedication:

"My wish is to honor this work and to be worthy of it; to be an ethical representative of aquatic bodywork, modeling the states of being and the approach it calls for. May there be as elevated a concept as I can put across, that it encompass and be for those learning it all that it is and can be. I want the course to be the unfolding each needs to be able to embrace this sharing. I want each to have the space and encouragement to enter the feeling states in which aquatic bodywork happens at its fullest. I teach in simplicity. The learning is effortless, a becoming, an embodiment of ideas. I ask that Spirit be with me and with us in this time together and that all the potential lessons are realized. I dedicate this course to Spirit and hold the space for Spirit to unfold its higher purposes in our midst.

"I allow our flow to carry us where the greatest good of all beings is served. I open to and remain open to guidance in the role it is for me to play in the coming shared gestures. May we each be advanced along our paths and attain the increment awaiting us. May we each release the tethers to the limiting past, to constructs. May the vision of our becoming appear to us and magnetize us to its realization. May the most exalted of paths lying before us be revealed. May we understand and leave aside all impediments to the realization of our Being."

Come into relation with your internal resistance to the dedication. Find a way "in". I like to sneak up on the course, come in sideways, come gradually into focus.

3. Before each class review the material, no matter how many times you have already taught it. Return to the "feel" of the level, of the particular training. Review the order in which to present the material, and how much time you have to arrive at each point in its presentation.

4. Re-examine how you present. Be open to new ideas, inspirations. Does what you do answer students’ needs? Is it essential? Can anything be taken away or added?

5. Have as much a picture of the participants in advance as possible. Know their experience in the water, where they are from, their professions and ages; know the gender balance of the training. Compare this to reading a table of contents and skimming through a book, without drawing conclusions.

6. Remember teaching is co-creation. What transpires is determined by the intersection of the receptivity and personality constellation of the group with you. Not everything can be prepared or planned in advance. A certain amount of structure should never be sacrificed, but the rest should be flexible.
