Auroville, well known as the “Universal City”, is an experimental city located in South India, created to realize what is only possible when people live together in a community without national and religious barriers, without ethnic, political, and economic separations – everything that usually separates and divides. Here, citizens of the whole world, live a life of selfless service, dedicated to the search for human unity. Transformed from an arid desert land into a lush and green forest, this unique city is supported by UNESCO and the Government of India, Auroville is a special place, where you can find peace for both your mind and soul.
Here in Auroville, you will have the opportunity to stay in this beautiful beachfront centre, which combines traditional therapies with the benefits of water at body temperature (35 ° C), which will help you achieve a deep state of physical and mental well-being. This healing path is based on the understanding that the human being is first and foremost a spiritual being, seeking to express his true self through his mental, emotional, and physical “bodies”. The various natural and non-invasive therapies will try to lead you to a deeper energy level within a safe space made of care, love, and touch.
Watsu (WATer ShiatSU) is a treatment that involves staying on the surface of the water at body temperature. It combines stretching and relaxation in hot water, also including some acupressure techniques to generate a sense of deep well-being and restore the balance between body and mind. Harold Dull, who pioneered Watsu in the 1980s, called it “an art of mental healing.”

Watsu Therapy is also a perfect treatment for those who have recently been discharged from physical therapy.
