Melanie, who runs of MD Physiotherapy, explains Watsu and its benefits: 

We have all dreamed about total relaxation, your summer holiday soon becomes a distant memory. However, those who are fortunate to have access to a home pool could experience the wonderfully relaxing effects of Watsu.

What is Watsu?
Watsu is an aquatic therapy which helps to heal the body and mind. Delivered by a qualified practitioner, pool owners are treated to a 1-to-1 relaxing therapy.  You can see Watsu in action here.

How it started
Watsu was started in the 1980s by Harold Dull who combined the benefits of warm water and shiatsu massage. Scientist are realising the benefits of water and what a positive effect it can have, not only does the warm water and choreographed movement patterns help to ease the stresses and strains in the body, they also help to ease the mind.

What to expect
After a brief assessment you are led into the pool, encouraged to close your eyes and just simply breathe, when you’re ready the therapy will begin. You will be taken through a series of movement patterns and gentle manipulations which are choreographed according to your needs. There is no submersion but your ears can get a little wet (ear plugs are optional). The special offer session will take approximately one hour.

One off Free offer

The offer is open to residents in South West area of London until the end of October 2015. The session will be delivered by me, Melanie Duckett. I’m a qualified physiotherapist and WABA (worldwide aquatic bodywork registry) member. Contact melanie on 07816 668 390 or email her at

What clients say:
Incredible feeling to be held, it was so relaxing and safe, I remembered happy childhood memories which were long forgotten.

I’m not used to being held and at first found it difficult to relax however once I did, I felt the back pain relax and I was able to walk taller again.

So relaxing, I didn’t want it to end.
