Testimonials • What people are saying about aquatic bodywork...
"Watsu with Davida is like entering another realm. It’s an experience that takes one beyond massage. Cradling me in warm water she rocked and stretched with graceful, flowing movements until the tension in body and mind literally melted away and I found myself still in a deep state of relaxation. The weightlessness of the water….the playfulness of the movement….the silence and Davida’s skillful, receptive and intuitive touch combine and encourage a deep rest that is the foundation of all healing."

"Davida's sessions in the water are like a gateway to a new, fresh level of sensory awareness. Whatever state I arrive in, high or low stress, I know I will be 'met'... met and guided to a state of deep letting go. Her creative awareness of time, rhythm, repose and the body allows me to connect with my own core harmony... nothing is richer... the water is her home and I look forward to experiencing incredibly rich,new dimensions with her guidance for years to come."

me into the deepest place of
trust that I have ever
known. I highly recommend her."
