The embodiment of care and flow

Our Vision and Philosophy involves caring for both our individual self and our broader + collective Self

Our journeys to health and wellness is not possible without communities and ecologies of Care.

With water + bliss + you,

we can co-create the sustainable, healthy, and whole land+scapes and water+scapes of wellness around the world.

S.P.A.  Aqua Prima is a water+scape of wellness.

Nestled in the quiet suburbs of Southwest Calgary, our first space and studio is at Southland & Elbow Drive.  We dedicate our home to our journeys of healing in and with water...

Here, we introduce and enrich our Massage Therapy Clinic's repertoire to include two modalities in hydrotherapy and aquatic bodywork i.e.

 

Watsu (Water + Shiatsu created by Harold Dull) and

 

Water Release Therapy (assisted yoga in water created by Diane Feingold).

More importantly, here we (re)introduce water as a nurturing and connective place for profound relaxation, restoration, strengthening, and healing, and as perhaps, how you have always known it from before you were even born...

Water is a supportive and expansive world where we can be fluid ourselves --- to be the very essence of flow.  

In this soft yet robust universe, we can find lightness, unprecedented levels of relaxation, release, connections, and perhaps, a sense of freedom and connection to the broader world...

Masaru Emoto wrote when published the first pictures of frozen water crystals,

"The messages from water are telling us to look inside ourselves."

Because in the words of Loren Eiseley, anthropologist, philosopher, and natural science writer:

"If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water."

Because. we. are. water.

I hope to meet you in the waters very soon.

Aquatic Bodywork

At the very least, aquatic bodywork such as Watsu and WRT Water Release Therapy:

Free the body of the bonds of gravity as the body-temperature

water supports and enamors us...

The sympathetic, "fight or flight" nervous system is overridden by the parasympathetic nervous system. There is no harm. There is no threat...

The breath deepens...

The digestive system fires up...

The body is allowed to restore "for long term survival"...

The spine is stimulated gently, and then the rest of the joints in the body...

The muscles release tension and thus, are ready and most safely

able to receive massages that increase circulation and encourages tissue repair and healing...

Flexibility exercises are introduced as the body and the mind fully relaxes...
 

A sense of flow is felt, where the beginnings and ends of movement are blurred...

Fluidity is embodied.

And our journey has just begun...
