What is Aqua Wellness?
Aqua Wellness is a collective term for one of the most enjoyable forms of relaxing, of freeing oneself from burden and undertaking an extraordinary journey that leads to one’s origins. The journey and accompanying guidance are at once systematic as well as intuitive.
Aqua Wellness combines elements of massage, meditation and bodywork in such a way that one can experience the freedom of movement made possible by water to the full. To be carried in warm water, to be guided almost weightlessly brings about a beneficial shift in one’s awareness of one’s body and one’s self. Every session is as unique as the person receiving it and directed to the needs of the person in the medium of water at that moment in time.

A well-grounded training in Aqua Wellness ensures that sessions are of the highest level possible. Only those who themselves have undertaken their own journey in the water are able to accompany their clients openly, confidently and competently.
We have condensed our many years of experience into training Modules which cover the practical and theoretical as well as intuitive and spiritual aspects that characterise bodywork in water.

Aqua Wellness training is aimed at people who in their search for healing, balance and transformation wish to grow in a very special way and who wish to help other people to discover their potential. Training focuses on the element of water and the deep experiences it makes possible which are experienced variously as effortless, inspiring and exhilarating and at the same time precious, honest and powerful.
The promise water holds is open to all who are willing to engage with it. Everyone can benefit from the water to help them master their everyday life on land with confidence, ease and composure.
The training Modules are suitable for all those who
- wish to obtain a profound training and qualification in “new water-bound therapies”
- wish to develop and deepen their feeling for and consciousness of their bodies
- want to learn how to fully surrender themselves and place trust in others
- seek to heal old wounds
- are searching for clarity in their lives
- wish to deepen their sense of peace inwardly and outwardly
- want more vitality in their relationships with partners and family
- are searching for a fulfilling purpose alongside their work or everyday life
- wish to help others to reach such aims
- would like to be part of a friendly network of people connected with water and healing in the wider sense.

For people in therapeutic or social professions as well as those who already have experience in the wellness or cosmetic branches, these new aspects and techniques have the potential to enrich their work with people at a deeper level. For people without any prior training in these fields, the training programme offers an opportunity to gain new perspectives and acquire new practical skills.
Against this general background, interested persons can choose between the following certified training paths:
