Watsu was developed by Harold Dull in California, USA, in 1980.

Harold brought Zen Shiatsu techniques into the water, that is, in warm water (usually in a pool). He found that working in water with a client could bring additional health benefits, notably inducing deep relaxation.

Watsu combines muscle stretching, joint mobilization, massage, Shiatsu, and dance in warm water of around 35°C. The receiver is continuously supported, typically floating on his or her back, while the therapist cradles, moves, stretches, and massages the receiver.
