Evidence-Based Watsu
It wasn't too many years ago when Watsu was considered an experimental technique, primarily associated with "eastern" practitioners, not western medicine.

Well, 28 years after its inception, therapists across the globe can now find published research about using Watsu for their most disabled clientele.

It's not just your guru's Watsu anymore...

Community Pool Use: Insurance Coverage, Rental Agreements and Medicare Regulations (oh my!)
community pool Sign-up your entire staff up for our Last Gasp Community Pool webinar coming in December

When you lease space at a community pool to provide aquatic therapy, you create a whole host of potential problems. Have you considered who pays the worker's compensation claim if you get hurt while working in the pool? Or are you even allowed to use the community pool for your Medicare patients when there is lap swimming or independent exercise going on?

Gather your staff together and join our 90-minute Community Pool Use Rules and Regulations webinar on December 16th and find out. This webinar comes complete with a comprehensive "checklist" - to ensure that you have addressed issues of worker's compensation coverage, general liability coverage, Medicare exclusivity. We will also address all the implications which come with renting a pool for therapy.
