So glad to see you here William! Keo tells me that you have kept good records of your many sessions. Have you written anything up that you'd be able to share? I see that you have a great deal of experience with elders and wonder if it would be interesting to start a Group here with that focus? (If you'd like to, I can help. You just click on the Groups tab above and go from there really.) Meanwhile, enjoy browsing around and finding some watsu friends.
Thank you so much for all that you shared William. First, I think you might like to meet Adam Ulacha (click for his profile here) in Poland who also gives only free sessions. It's a wonderful, wonderful mission you are both on.
I am so interested to read that the elders you work with have often never had massage. This receptivity to watsu was the first thing that struck me when a friend introduced me to it more than 15 years ago now, at a therapeutic public warm pool in the UK. There were mostly elders there just standing around in the warm water. When we started practicing with each other they were immediately attracted and wanted to try. They had no fear and no inhibitions. English people. I'm glad to know you and will look forward to sharing much more.
I am currently doing research on WATSU and wondering, whether you could give me more detailled informations on your interesting article “Self-Perceived Benefits of Receiving Watsu Sessions for Eighteen Months by Residents of a Continuing Care Retirement Community”. Please be so kind to contact me via this page or via University of Bern (http://www.ikom.unibe.ch/ueber_uns/staff/schitter_agnes/index_ger.html).
