Participants can spend this day in a playful and relaxing way in the water and get acquainted with the Watsu®  rehabilitation method and experience it on their own body. The event is intended for caregivers and patients with dystrophies, atrophies and other NSOs.

The caring parent and child (or adult patient) will have the opportunity to experience 30 minutes of effective and deep relaxation, muscle stretching and gentle mobilization in warm water. The work takes place individually and each participant will be in the care of a professionally trained therapist from the Watsu for Health team.

During the group workshop, participants will be introduced to the basic theory of Watsu®  and practical training, in which parents will work with their own child under the guidance of a certified lecturer and professionally trained practitioners / therapists from the Watsu for Health team. They will learn the basic methodical movements of Watsu®  and a gentle relaxing massage. The workshop will be a playful way and parents will have space for questions.

Watsu®  is an amazing form of relaxation and rehabilitation for these patients.

There is no easier way to promote a good cause.
