Liquid Flow is an aquatic bodywork modality given in a warm water pool (ideally 35°C).
Developed at the Quiet Healing Center, Auroville, Liquid Flow is inspired and based on the forms and qualities of Watsu, Oceanic Bodywork Aqua (OBA), Healing Dance, and WaterDance.
With a complete sense of presence and attention, the therapist moves, folds, stretches, and massages the client's floating body on the surface, inducing a profound state of both physical and mental relaxation. Depending on the choice of the client, a session can also include an underwater part (with nose clip), which offers a unique experience of being moved under water.
The flowing interaction with water, its fluid support and warm embrace, and the practitioner's presence provide a space for the client to experience the multilayered benefits of this powerful and softening bodywork.
Liquid Flow offers an opportunity for profound relaxation and letting go, for building trust, for being nurtured and held, for expanding inner and outer boundaries, for releasing emotions and traumas – ultimately, for freeing body and mind in a flow unique to each client and to each session.
