Similar to past tenses, tense backs are related to things that happened a while ago and are incomprehensible to most second-graders. Learn to understand relaxation with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a 60-minute watsu session (a $60 value) at Sweetwater Watsu in Evergreen. Watsu is a form of body therapy performed in warm water, as relaxing as an embrace from a slightly heated porpoise. Practitioner Susan Lange will guide clients through a series of watsu movements in a 96-degree pool housed in a 24-foot yurt. During the hour-long session, clients float in water while Susan facilitates a series of cradles, rocks, stretches, and movements designed to therapeutically relax the body while alleviating stress. Watsu can calm the sympathetic nervous system to mitigate tension, offering a nonmedicinal treatment for many common afflictions, such as arthritis, cerebral palsy, and Nintendo thumb.

Sweetwater Watsu

When Susan Lange’s massage therapist suggested she try watsu, Lange knew as much about the therapy as most people—nothing. “We’re kind of obscure,” Lange says with a laugh, referring to the watsu community she now considers herself a member of. The therapy, whose name is derived from “water” and “shiatsu,” blends ancient Japanese finger massage with the restorative properties of warm water. In heated pools, therapists fully support their clients as they administer a combination of massage, stretching, and instant-rice-cooking techniques. After her first watsu experience, Lange writes, “I felt like I was dancing, floating, flying and being nurtured all at once."

Today, Lange shares this experience with others in the yurt she and her husband built in the meadow adjoining their home. Inside this yurt is a 15-foot circular pool filled with 4 feet of warm water. Once they have waded in, clients can strap on narrow floatation devices to assist Lange as she guides them through the water. As she performs the massage, Lange gently strikes Tibetan singing bowls drifting alongside her in the water, creating a soundscape to further soothe the senses.
