I came across a program on PBS (WCNY-2 in the Syracuse area) that I really enjoyed and it fits right in with the wellness aspect of spas and this blog.   Healing Quest is a weekly national television series focused on the latest in integrative health and natural approaches to wellness.  6 seasons of Healing Quest have aired on a small number of PBS stations across the country.  Each episode features:

  • A lead story and a second story highlighting the latest in integrative health and natural wellness
  • A nutrition tip focusing on healthy eating, organic food and nutritional supplementation
  • Mind-body-spirit wisdom from Deepak Chopra
  • A Healing MomentTMmeditation featuring Olivia Newton-John’s music and David Fortney’s nature footage

A recent episode of Healing Quest featured a segment on Watsu – shiatsu massage performed in the water.  Gentle bodywork and rhythmic breathing in warm water.  You can see the Watsu segment and other Healing Quest other clips here.

I’ve never experienced Watsu, I’m not sure it’s for me.  It seems very intimate and personal.  But practitioners who perform the treatment and those that experience it say that it is a life changing mind and body experience.
