What is Aqua-Vie
FLO - REGAIN YOUR FLUIDITY
Aqua-Vie is a gentle form of body therapy performed in warm salt-water (body temperature.) It combines elements of massage, joint mobilisation, muscle stretching and acupressure. The receiver is continuously supported while being floated, cradled, rocked and stretched. The deeply relaxing effects of warm water and nurturing support, combine with Aqua-Vie's movements, stretches, massage and point work, to create a bodywork with a range of therapeutic benefits and potential healing on many levels.
What to Expect
FREE YOUR BODY MIND & SOUL
Many clients will come with a specific focus (e.g. pain syndromes, post injury or post surgery, specific movement restrictions)...while others seek Aqua-Vie for the experience of relaxation, blissful letting go, time-out, and quiet meditative stillness it can induce.Imagine, the warmth and sense of weightlessness induced by water,... your eyes closed, so there is just the play of light across your eyelids, your ears are under the water so the sound of the world is muffled. The world starts to disappear, leaving just yourself and your experience of body and being in the water, nothing to do, nowhere to go, just receiving and letting go, into the graceful movement, rocking cradling and gentle rhythm. It is no wonder people speak of states of bliss and levels of relaxation never before imagined.
