Claire Sanderson and the watsu therapy

Feb 11, 2019, 12:45 PM
As Editor of Women’s Health, Claire Sanderson knows a thing or two about wellbeing, so finding a treatment she hasn’t tried before isn’t easy. But the watsu treatment at Akasha is a new experience and what’s more, for a self-confessed fitness fanatic with a deadline-driven job, it’s a watery revelation.
 
A combination of yoga, shiatsu, meditation and massage, watsu is a hydrotherapy treatment that uses the body’s reactions in a weightless state to influence the therapist’s bespoke care. 
 
Leave the hustle and bustle, the noise and screens behind, and join wellness journalist Suzanne Duckett on a journey into relaxation and the wonderful, watery world of wellbeing. To celebrate the release of her new book Bathe, she is inviting some special guests to join her in some truly immersive experiences: discovering the invigorating power of bath and birch, the emotional harmony of sound and steam, and the soothing energy of mud and ice. 
   
And you won’t be left behind – in this podcast, listeners get up close and personal with the experience: the benefits, secrets and sounds of each treatment.

Start the year with some new experiences: close your eyes and plunge into a world of wellness. Bathing is a primal ritual, but it’s never been more relevant. The conversation starts here.
 
The podcast series will be 6 episodes long launching Jan 14th and guests include Liz Earle, Melissa Hemsley, Ward Thomas and three more surprise guests.
   
Bathe: The Podcast was created and produced in-house by Bonnier Books UK to celebrate the publication of Suzanne Duckett’s new book Bathe
 
Recorded on location in the Akasha at The Café Royale in London www.hotelcaferoyal.com/spaandtreatments
