Go To Travel Campaign Watsu Aqua relaxations

Newly adds Watsu to its spa treatments【Go To Travel Campaign】※Temporarily suspended until January 11, 2021 (Updated as of 12/15)

The therapist generally wears a mask during the therapy.

To the wide range of treatments and high technical skills of the therapists, the SORANO HOTEL adds Watsu, a form of aqua therapy featuring underwater massage, kaatsu (blood flow restriction training), and stretching, to the lineup.
Following the notification by the Go To Travel Campaign Office, application of the campaign will be temporarily suspended until January 11 (Monday), 2021.

Derived from Water Shiatsu, Watsu is widely used in the United States and Europe as underwater therapy incorporated into various treatments. At the SORANO HOTEL, Watsu is offered one-on-one with a licensed therapist at the outdoor Infinity Pool or Indoor Spa hot bathing facility. Floating in the water frees your body from gravity, and the rhythm of the waves overlap with your breathing to invite you to deep relaxation. The relaxing effect along with the water pressure, massage, and stretching balance your autonomic nervous system.

The therapist treats your body while in the water, but as a preventive measure against virus infection, equipment such as swim pillows and noodles (foot floats) are used to prevent the guest from coming into close contact with the therapist.
