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.
