Across the long history of Watsu®, the year 2019 marked the first time when this event was held in a large number of countries and cities simultaneously. Countless therapists and clients were involved all over the world. Seeing that the event had such a success and created a huge wave of cooperation, we decided to continue and to make a tradition out of the World Watsu® Week, with the second year to be held from 22.03. to 28.03.2020.
This year we have decided to have a common topic in organizing World Watsu® Week event: the focus will be People/Children with Orthopedic, Neurologic and Rheumatologic Special Needs, and how Watsu® can have a profound effects on the neuromuscular system, and benefits clients with a wide variety of special needs.
The topic is not mandatory for organizers, but can be a choice in the structure where the team is specialized in such issue.
World Watsu®Week will start again with the Water Day on 22 March.
Certain countries where, for instance, outdoor swimming pools are used, or which cannot join us in the week from 22 March for any other reason, may use a period more suitable for them.
Some countries will use the second term for Watsu® Week from 18 May 2020.
However, all countries officially vouch for the World Watsu® Week from 22 to 28 March 2020 in order to achieve a unique media support and joint promotion of Watsu® for professional and non-professional public, at the same time and encompassing the whole world.
Every country will have its own programme: presentations of Watsu®, experimental therapy, Watsu® Round, Tantsu, lectures, projections and other side programmes…
