The Magic Encounter of Body and Water


Experience the Water. Experience yourself.


SOMA - [ancient Greek σῶμα] the body, as perceived from within.
SOMATICS - [English] a field that explores the body through inner experiences

AQUA - [Latin] Water
AQUATIC - [English] concerning Water; taking place in the Water

SOMAQUATICS a field that explores the experience of the body in relationship with Water. Here, “the body”, as perceived from within, is understood multidimensionally: encompassing the physical, emotional, energetic and spiritual experience of itself

WATER is not only an element. Water is a living consciousness in its own right and contains the consciousness of all life, including ours. Water beholds great transformative powers by its nature and serves as a conduit, facilitating a deeper connection to one’s own inner experience of self and it interconnects all living beings. SOMA or THE BODY is understood multidimensionally: including the physical, emotional, energetic and spiritual experience of itself, being impacted transgenerationally and shaped by the social, cultural and political structures one has been conditioned to live in.

Water awakens a cellular memory of the universal life force energy within, reconnecting us to our health, vitality and the innate joy of life, especially, when over the course of life we may have come to forget.
These healing and strengthening moments of reconnection with the source of our vital energy can be experienced through somaquatic sessions, courses, workshops and retreats .

SOMAQUATICS is a space for experiencing and discovering one’s own body in relation to Water. Water is part of our body, thus the liquids of our body are part of Water, as a whole. SOMAQUATICS facilitates connection to the here-and-now, and simultaneously, as well to the other dimensions. The experience that arises in the very moment of connecting with Water is completely individual for every person. It can range from encountering one's own essence, an important memory, the answer to a personal question, or perhaps meeting the living conscious essence of Water itself.

"I had the chance to enjoy a somaquatic session with Lao and have been really excited about this work ever since! It was a wonderful experience for me - especially the underwater work, which I was a bit scared of, at first. I felt very well taken care of by Lao."
A detailed experience report by Tina Stavemann can be found in the online magazine Aquamondo (in German language).

The somaquatic session was a special gift to a special son and it was a special experience with an especially beautiful relaxation. We thank again and wish - hopefully in the next months - for a repetition, because this special beautiful feeling is "addictive". We will be very happy to recommend Lao and their SOMAQUATICS sessions to others.

The somaquatic session with Lao was truly a magical experience. Having a bodywork session while being weightless in warm water is really a unique experience, and it takes relaxation to another level. Lao's touch and their grounding, caring presence are very therapeutic, both emotionally and physically. I was able to feel safe and vulnerable at the same time and allow my body and mind to unwind in deeper ways than during a usual massage. Highly recommend a session."
Alex Korsunskaya (45), San Francisco
