„WaterWellness & Volcano-Power“/Energy-Journey

Azorian Winter Sao Miguel


Magic of water deeply touching – consciously living the encounters with the water inside you and all around you in the middle of the Atlantic  heritage in Sao Miguel, the main island of the Azorian archipelago. Sensitively guided to recognize your personal truth. Where the thin earth-crust conjures up hot springs and volcanic landscapes for ages we find magical botanical treasures like huge tree ferns, centuries-old trees, camellias, roses and powerful plants in the crater-valley of Furnas like in a wonderful fairy-kingdom. In this protected, lovely surrounding we deeply dive into the world of aquatic relaxation grace to the balancing experiences of WATSUâ, HealingDance and soft Water-Relax-Treatments in body-warm thermal waters. We stay in Furnas Boutique Hotel with thermal indoor- and outdoor-pools for pure water-enjoyment ideally located also for clearing and stimulating hikes in the volcanic nature nearby. These are perfect conditions to deliberate the young annual cycle in love and gratitude full of potential from used and incriminating and to establish solid roots to personal heart-wishes, visions and life aims. Soft enjoyment full of joy carried in love by the elements up close.

Aquatic body-work Watsuâ – water-Relax treatments

Watsu is a form of aquatic bodywork used for deep relaxation and passive aquatic therapy. Watsu is characterized by one-on-one sessions in which a practitioner or therapist gently cradles, moves, stretches, and massages a receiver in chest-deep warm water.

Watsu, originally developed by Harold Dull at Harbin Hot Springs, California in the early 1980s, combines elements of muscle stretchingjoint mobilizationmassageShiatsu, and dance, performed in chest-deep warm water (around 35°C = 95°F). The receiver is continuously supported by a practitioner or therapist while being backfloated, rhythmically cradled, moved, stretched, and massaged (Wikipedia)
