Watsu® Aquatic Bodywork

Qi Works invites you to experience Watsu® Aquatic Bodywork at at our eco-friendly, warm water pool (~34-36C) nestled on the hill in Napier, Hawke's Bay.


Water + Shiatsu combines elements of massage, joint mobilisation, accupressure, and muscle stretching while the receiver is supported and moved fluidly through warm water.

The deeply relaxing effects of warm water combined with the bodywork provide a range of benefits and potential healing on many levels.

Receive a session from Qi Works to relax, work through chronic pain or injury, or just be pampered.
