Moms-to-be can enjoy free water massage

By From page A5 | February 21, 2014

Are you feeling the heaviness and low back pain of pregnancy? Would you love to float weightlessly in warm water while your entire body is gently massaged and stretched?

Imagine the pain melting away, allowing you to move freely in the water and deeply relax. This is the magic of Watsu (water shiatsu), or aquatic massage.

Loving Aquatic Massage is offering moms-to-be a free Watsu session at 2 p.m. Saturday, March 8, at 1418 Colgate Drive in East Davis. The women will relax together in the warm-water pool while aquatic therapists Laurie Loving and Jillian Van Ness float and massage the moms in turn.

“I loved receiving warm Watsu with Laurie during my pregnancy,” said Erin Dunning, a client and owner of Bikram Yoga in Davis. “It was a special time, and during all three trimesters I felt completely nurtured and weightless. I was able to deeply relax, let go and connect with my baby while soaking up all of the therapeutic benefits of this unique style of massage.”

Space is limited to eight women; call Loving at 530-756-7335. For more information and to view Watsu photos, go to www.LovingAquaticMassage.com.
