The Watsu Program at Galter LifeCenter

The Watsu Program at the Galter LifeCenter promotes health and wellness within the general and medically diagnosed populations. We are currently the only Chicago provider of Watsu to specifically treat medical diagnosis within our Complementary Medicine Program. During a Watsu Session/Evaluation meaningful and therapeutic client-centered assessments are administered. Therapeutic goals are created and tailored to the individual's needs by a Licensed Occupational Therapist with aquatic training in Watsu techniques. These goals enhance health/wellness and quality of life for activities of everyday living.

Watsu has been used within a general wellness population, and as a measure to manage medical symptoms associated with Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Pain, Sleep Disorders, Orthopedic Disorders and other medical conditions.

Water is a natural place for healing the body and mind; relieving the stress of chronic pain symptoms, a stressful lifestyle or simply experiencing the freedom of weightless movement and gentle stretches that only the forgiving medium of warm water and Watsu Aquatic Therapy can provide.

If you are interested in learning more about the therapeutic, medical or wellness benefits of Watsu and/or would like to schedule a Watsu Evaluation/Session please contact
