About Aqua NAIO™

Moving with the waters of life. 

Aqua NAIO™ is a form of aquatic holistic awareness and somatic education. Sessions use the nurturing properties of water to reduce the effects of gravity on the body through buoyancy and weightlessness, and to create an immersive environment that supports relaxation and connection to an internal sense of fluidity. The Aqua NAIO practitioner uses gentle-touch and attuned presence for support during the session. People often feel an over all sense of harmony and well-being from the encounter.

Buoyancy & Weightlessness

Water provides buoyancy, which reduces the effects of gravity on the body. This allows for easier movement and less strain on joints and muscles, making it particularly beneficial for individuals with arthritis, injuries, or those recovering from surgery.

Warm Water Environment

The warm water helps to relax muscles, enhance circulation, and create a supportive and nurturing environment.

Supportive Touch

The practitioner provides continuous support, allowing the receiver to let go and experience a sense of weightlessness and deep relaxation.

Attuned Listening

The practitioner in Open Awareness provides an attuned and sensitive support that helps orient the client further into their own inner fluidity.
