Aquamassage is a massage treatment that is performed on warm water cushions that are placed on a massage couch. The treatment can be performed with or without oil. The client lies face up and does not have to turn over, which is ideal for people who do not like to lay face down.
The therapist works between the cushions and the client's body using upward pressure. The warm water relaxes the muscles and the water supports the body, this gives a sensation of floating.
Aquamassage is suitable for all ages and it is particularly suitable in the later stages of pregnancy. Aquamassage can be useful in the context of medical conditions such as Parkinson's, MS, ME, arthritis and muscle strains, as well as helping with postural correction.
