Taught by Peggy Schoedinger
18th – 23rd of July 2023 in Madrid, Spain.
(50 hours credit hours with Watsupath™ Training Institute https://watsupath.com and Worldwide Aquatic Bodywork Association W.A.B.A. http://watsu.com for the professional training in Watsu®)
Come join internationally known physiotherapist, Peggy Schoedinger, for a very special Clinical WATSU® 3. The focus will be on exploring the essence of WATSU®: sensitive and deeply aware presence while following, exploring, and inviting the unique movement possibilities of each individual patient.
We will move freely while adapting to and creating movements to address the specific needs of every individual. We will learn how to use WATSU® to decrease pain, decrease spasticity, improve mobility, improve posture, deepen relaxation, deepen depth of respiration, decrease muscle spasm, and support the healing of trauma and deeply held emotional wounds.
Videos will demonstrate WATSU® being adapted for people with a wide variety of neurological and orthopedic challenges. Additionally, hands-on sessions with clients with various special needs will enable participants to directly witness the extraordinary benefits of this work for our clients.
Come and join us! You’ll be astounded by the possibilities of WATSU® for your patients, including your most severely impaired patients!
This course is designed for physiotherapists and therapists who work and/or wish to work with people with special needs and its content is eminently clinical.
To access this training it is necessary to have successfully completed Watsu® 1, Watsu® 2 and a demonstration of competency with a senior instructor, and to have audited another Watsu® course, ideally Watsu® 2.
In addition, you must have completed a minimum of 20 free practice sessions (sessions to students or non-student receivers, having logged in your logbook the learning essence from each of them) and have received at least 5 professional Watsu® sessions.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will individually review your training path.
At the end of the class you will receive a Certificate issued by Watsupath™ Training Institute and the Worldwide Aquatic Bodywork Association W.A.B.A.
