She also became a licensed WATSU provider from the Worldwide Aquatic Bodywork Registry and is excited and looking forward to take you into the Water Flow therapy experience. The watsu therapy will be performed at a beautiful tide pool, where you will be completely surround by Nature and totally immersed into the healing power of the ocean.
Watsu is the principle form of Aquatic Therapy for rehabilitation. It promotes deep relaxation, quieting the sympathetic and enhancing the parasympathetic nervous systems. It has profound beneficial effects for trauma, both physical and psycho-emotional, with therapeutic application for neuromuscular injuries, stress, chronic pain, discomfort during pregnancy, and special needs.
Watsu is a unique and powerful form of bodywork for the physical, emotional and mental bodies. The water can open and heal us in ways we never imagined...in body, mind and spirit.
This integrated form of bodywork invites you into a space of deep relaxation, connection and healing. In the gentle weightlessness of warm water, your body can open into a new freedom of movement, stretching and release.
During 2018 and on behalf of Global Health & Pharma (GHP), Amara Healing Therapies & Watsu has been successful in the Alternative Medicine & Holistic Health Awards, and has been awarded: Most Influential Woman in Health & Wellness - Costa Rica.
Ana is also a certified yoga teacher, both for children and adultos and a Salsa and Aqua fitness instructor and she offers private lessons.
