Exploring our capabilities in the water is very rewarding. Feeling where the power of deep relaxation goes, of surrendering to smooth and fluid movements is highly liberating. The sensation after a session is of enormous well-being. But it’s not just at that moment that we feel this revitalization. The days that follow are different, as if that flight lifted us for a while, lifted our weight, with rare comfort. Like most water therapies, Aguahara explores this tranquility for the body and mind.
Hara is the Japanese word that means the center of everything, the beginning of movement, the focus. Aguahara is an aquatic bodywork technique developed by Alex Sieberstein. In the genesis of this therapy there is a lot of movement, fluctuation and immersions, but also an enormous reconnection with the environment that surrounds us. Because of this, and because it includes more dynamic movements, it is one of the therapies that can better be done in wild and colder waters. It is based on the flow of the body and not so much on the pressure of touching the muscles. This flow results in several good things: deep relaxation, relief from muscle pain, lightness, regeneration of the nervous system or blood stimulation, among many others. It can be applied to anyone, even if you don’t know how to swim. Sessions are tailored to each person’s needs or mood. It is recommended for anyone who needs to release tension. At LiquidZome, one of the people who follows this line of therapy is our dear Rita Maldonado. Try it!
