Hugo Paulino

Hugo is a holistic therapist who sees the human being as a whole in their emotional, social, spiritual, cognitive, and somatic ecosystem. He believes that commitment, trust, and cooperation are the foundations of a therapeutic relationship capable of elevating the individual experience.

His work in water emerges from his formative experience in Watsu, Water Dance, Prenatal Journey, and Shiatsu, alongside his studies in Anatomy, Physiology, Neuroscience, and Psychology. In session, he combines massage techniques and coordinated movement patterns with breathing, in total or partial immersion of the body.

The temperature (34°C) and the natural properties of water create the perfect environment for moments of deep relaxation, promoting motor and emotional release. Aquatic Therapy enhances a more regulated psychophysiological state, creating conditions to deal with stress, anxiety, (chronic) pain, and muscular tension.

This work can be seen as a therapeutic process, as a form of personal development, or as a recreational moment.

Violeta Aguiar Lapa

Aquatic Movement – Aquatic Therapy – Dance in water

Violeta is a person with an enormous sensitivity and went through a unique journey in discovering the element of water. Until a few years ago, she was afraid of the sea and big waves, a phobia that limited her and created constraints. She learned to swim and dance underwater. She then devoted himself to this vocation and her journey has been incredible. Founder of Oceans and Flow, she has taken dozens of people around the world on experiences that merge awareness of movement (or lack of) on land and water. Her main influences are Watsu, Flydeeper, Aquatic Doula, Embryology in water, psychological studies, free diving, sound healing with Tibetan bowls in water, meditation, Ai Chi, Yoga and Dragon Dreaming.

She researches the body “through different arts and body techniques, dancing in the water, freediving in apnea and more recently bodysurfing.” It was in the water that she found a purpose and a mission: “to take her message to more people and everything that this precious element allows us, facilitating experiences of self-knowledge and body awareness, through a unique set of experiences of reconnection with the water and with nature.”
