SOMAQUATICS: 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.
A somaquatic session begins with the client being held while floating on the surface of the water. From there different movements, shapes and positions can emerge. This can feel gentle, playful, expansive, still or energetic. Depending on the wishes of the client, they get moved only on the surface or also under the water. Loosening of the musculoskeletal system can bring pain relief and relaxation, deep contemplation and enjoyment. Everything comes into flow in the Water: Life energy and emotions, inner images and memories, and often a deep sense of connection. Each somaquatic session is a unique journey.
