Watsu and Waterdance in Santa Barbara by Diane FeingoldWatsu® is a form of aquatic bodywork which applies the ancient principles of Zen Shiatsu from Japan and Tantsu from India while being floated in warm water. The result is profound relaxation. . . . Many believe that Watsu® is the most significant advance in bodywork in our times. A bodywork modality which can have specific therapeutic results and profound healing on many levels of a person's being. These sessions are given in a chlorine free pool set in a beautiful, private aromatherapy garden.

WATSU & WATERDANCE
Watsu® is a registered trademark under the name of Harold Dull

Watsu and Waterdance in Santa Barbara by Diane FeingoldWatsu is an extraordinary modality of aquatic bodywork in which the receiver experiences many different sensations: deep relaxation, a sense of calmness and an overall feeling of release while being floated in warm water. This aquatic bodywork is a deeply meditative and profound experience that draws on your body’s natural healing energies to bring more comfort, ease, spaciousness, freedom, vitality and balance to all aspects of your body and being. There are gentle stretches along with Shiatsu massage, Yoga, and the circling movements of Tantsu along with the connection of breath and movement. If applicable Diane encourages the experience of WaterDance where even deeper openings can occur. However the perfect session unfolds it is reflected in the intuitive presence of being with and available to the needs, the breath and circumstances of each client in each moment.

WaterDance
Santa Barbara Watsu and Waterdance by Diane FeingoldWaterDance, also known as Wassertanzen, like Watsu begins with the client held above the surface of the water. And in Wassertanzen the client is then given nose plugs, and gradually and gently taken entirely under the water. Once freed from the bounds of head support and gravity, the client’s body can be moved, stretched, and worked in literally unlimited ways: Wassertanzen incorporates elements of massage, Aikido, dolphin and snake movements, rolls, somersaults, inversions, dance and much more.

The effects of this work include deep physical release, and can combine with deep states of relaxation, meditation, bliss and even visions.

The effects of being wrapped in the energetic field of the therapist’s heart energy in a warm fluid environment, with a new relationship to gravity, spatial orientation, temperature, light, sound, and movement can create a great calming, centering sense of well being. And the effects of feeling that sense of oneness with all of life can be a profound message to the central nervous system. Diane treats her clients and patients to an experience of Watsu and WaterDance Therapy combined with the breath which becomes an experience of trusting presence and conscious awareness for growth and inner well being. In conjunction with Healing Waters Diane offers retreat packages for couples and families combining both land and water modalities.

Some clinically proven benefits of Watsu and WaterDance include:
• Deep and often profound Relaxation
• Reduced Pain, Stress, and Fatigue
• Increased Energy
• Reduced Muscle Tension, Weakness and Guarding
• Interruption of muscle contractions and pain cycles
• Increased Range of Motion
• Improved Body Awareness, Muscle Tone, Posture, Breathing, and Skin Circulation
• The Recovery and Release of Emotional Issues and deep seated trauma.

Going back to the source.
That is the essence of Diane Feingold's waterwork.
The work in warm salt water takes one back to origins,
back to the source, a deep remembering of our first bodily experience.
In this way it is deeply healing and profoundly re-organizing.
Diane's work helps the body to remember its original integrity.
The element of salt water combined with the hands and movements of a skilled practitioner allows the body to naturally come back to its beginnings,
its essential wholeness.
One emerges from this work truly reborn.

There is a total of 16 hours in this course where you will experience the stillness that is the ground of presence and incorporate the way the heart and breath connection can be maintained throughout a Watsu as well as explore the many levels of your being that the Watsu is helping you access in the warm 97 degree purified mineral water.

See Training Information and Dates

This 50 hour course is designed for those interested in expanding the principals from Watsu® 1. (A pre-requisite)

Watsu® 2 expands the Transition Flow taught in Watsu® 1. We learn additional moves and bodywork in each position, how to incorporate the movements as needed. We learn about the meridians and points in Watsu and how to explore & follow client's tendency to move and how to creatively explore our own movements.

Practicing the pointwork, the lifts, the pushes and pulls introduced at this stage, helps develop the ability to explore and play with energy. Because the repertoire has increased to this level and there is so much to work & play with, it is recommended that one practices many sessions before going on to Watsu 3 or another form.

This class can be taken toward practitioner license hours.

Diane Feingold, Assistant Instructor

See Training Information and Dates

Prerequisites:
Watsu® 1 or the Basic Watsu® with Diane above...
(This may be changed to a WaterDance 3 depending on the incoming requests. In that case the prerequisites include the above plus WaterDance 1 & 2)

WaterDance (or "Wassertanzen", the original German name) is a form of aquatic bodywork developed by Arjana Brunschwiler and Aman Schroter in 1987. Like Watsu®, it begins with the client held in the practitioner's arms above the surface of the water, where the body is cradled, stretched, and relaxed. In WaterDance, the client is then given nose clips and gradually and gently taken entirely under the water. Once freed from the bounds of head support and gravity, the client's body can be moved, stretched, and worked in literally unlimited ways. WaterDance incorporates elements of massage, Aikido, dolphin and snake movements, rolls, somersaults, inversions, dance, and much more. The effects of this work include deep physical release and can induce deep states of relaxation, meditation, bliss, and even visions. A prerequisite for participating in Waterdance classes is that you have training in Watsu or other forms of above-surface aquatic bodywork.

In WaterDance 1 we explore the art of breath connection that enables you to establish a deep rapport with your clients, inspire their trust and offer the attentiveness that is necessary when bringing someone below the water's surface. You learn the WaterDance short form which includes learning to establish a rhythm that works with each client's breathing needs and to move all body types through the water with security, ease and graceful fluidity, giving the receiver a profound sense of freedom and joy.

Fee for class is $1450.
Check payable to 'Diane Feingold'.

Basic Healing Dance
(Credit of 50 hours)
Healing Waters, Santa Barbara, CA
Hosted by Diane - Taught by Inika Spence

See Training Information and Dates

Healing Dance is a powerful and beautiful technique developed by Alexander in 1993, incorporating elements of Watsu®, WaterDance, Trager Work, and dance. It consists of four trainings, Basic Healing Dance, Advanced HealingDance and the two underwater trainings-Above and Below and Shape and Space. The Healing Dance is primarily based on wave movements for the entire body,and also includes quiet embraces, releases, tractions, smooth transitions and massage, all woven together in an unending flow. The guiding philosophy of the work is that movement is the "medicine" and in the experience of "received dance" the healing process in the body is activated. Students learn to create the sensation of lightness and flying, to generate a rhythmic field, to find the various "rhythms of awareness" for clients and even to channel movement. Physical and emotional blockages are resolved in the polarity between freedom and security. Advanced body mechanics are taught to create movements of greater subtlety and sensitivity. As the vocabulary of movements expands students become more confident to improvise and better respond to the needs of the client. healingdance.org is the official web site of Healing Dance.

Fee for class is $1450.
Check payable to 'Diane Feingold'.
