2014: Swaywaver

No other treatment method can lead so deeply into relaxation as treatments in the water, known as Watsu. During this massage and movement therapy in 35°C warm water, patients are stretched through gentle and careful movements.

Often it is hard for people in emotional stress situations to relax or to be treated by an unknown therapist when only wearing bathing suits. Through this experience Michel-Claude Urban, movement pedagogue and shiatsu therapist from Berlin, had the idea to bring Watsu treatments on land.

In cooperation with the company Pedalo by Holz-Hoerz GmbH, which has worked out for decades quality and competence in the development and manufacturing of coordination equipment, a new product was emerged during the last months, that can not be exceeded in individuality, design and functionality. We are talking about the unique Swaywaver Treatment Couch.
