Juvenile Arthritis and Watsu

Juvenile Arthritis and Watsu

"The way to have a better night's rest," are words to comfort one from those long, hard days at work. People who seek relaxation often turn to a Japanese socialization therapy named Watsu. Watsu is a special form of underwater bodywork used primarily for passive deep relaxation and gentle aqua therapy. Watsu can be characterized by one on one sessions in which a therapist or practitioner softly cradles, manipulates, stretches and massages the recipient in shallow chest-high water. The session may last around half an hour. A broad range of body fluids are tapped into such as; blood, nervous system fluid, digestive system fluid, bile, and much more.

A research conducted by scientists at the Scripps Clinic in San Diego, California, discovered that people who experienced significantly diminished pain levels through a ten-minute semester of Watsu had greater outcomes than those who failed massage independently. Moreover, people who had undergone a traditional massage had undergone decreased pain levels. The analysis published in the March issue of the Archives of Internal Medicine found that the blend of both massage techniques led to substantial developments in chronic musculoskeletal disorders, especially throat pain, as well as decreased pain related to asthma, arthritis, and osteoarthritis.
