MOVEMENT, PREVENTION, THERAPY
The wavebalance® therapy system was developed by Manuela Sonntag, a well-known German physiotherapist. Its innovation lies in the holistic combination of four elements – heat, water, wave movement and the therapist’s manual skills, enabling the body to fully activate self-healing processes.
Manuela Sonntag has also developed an extensive treatment programme and the wavebalance® school of movement therapy for holistic body regeneration. The principles on which they are based can be successfully communicated to your Clients or Guests so that they continue the regeneration process started at Your facility when they return home.
Features of the wavebalance® system:
- Wavebalance® treatments, massages, therapeutic techniques and exercises are based on the natural movement of waves, which inspired the creation of the 3D oscillation technique that underpins the wavebalance® method.
- During treatments, Clients/Patients/Guests experience a powerful dynamic and a soothing feeling of floating and natural regeneration.
- During the treatments, the natural mobility of the body of persons using the system is developed. The muscular system is strengthened while giving relief to the joints.
- The wavebalance® method activates the body’s own intelligence and its awareness to support the body’s self-healing process, leading to an increase in inner harmony and the adoption of new, healthier movement patterns by those using the system.
- The wavebalance® therapy system is suitable for people of all ages.
WAVEBALANCE® – MASSAGE
The treatment performed on the BalanceFloater bed allows the physical properties of water to be tamed. The body is brought into a state of harmony by the gentle, soothing movements of the masseur, who subjects the person being massaged to the movement of water waves. On the one hand, the therapist induces rhythmic undulations, which are transmitted throughout the body, and on the other, the body is affected by the movement of the BalanceFloater bed. The wavebalance® massage technique combined with the therapist’s gentle movements has a soothing effect on the joints and connective tissue, enabling you to achieve deep relaxation, a sense of lightness and being swayed by water. This makes every treatment a sensory experience for the whole body.
CONSTANT DYNAMIC UNDULATIONS AND CIRCULAR MOVEMENTS OF THE WATER
The innovative wavebalance® technique is based on the movement of water, whereby the body is affected by the dynamic undulations and circular movements of the water, combined into one holistic harmony. Through linear, circular and counter-rotating movements, the hips of the person receiving the treatment move in three-dimensional symmetrical circles of decreasing intensity, while the BalanceFloater mattress undulates in unison with these movements.
NATURAL MOVEMENT AND PROPERTIES OF WATER
The wavebalance® method gives treatments a new quality, making them inspiring, effective and enjoyable. By using the healing and regenerative properties of water, treatments and exercises take on a sensual dimension. Wave movements are easy to perform and learn because the wavebalance® technique is based on natural movement patterns. Moreover, the massaging effect of the water stimulates the circulation of all fluids in the body, and the person receiving the treatment absorbs the power of the waves and energises his or her entire body.
NEW USE OF THE BODY’S NATURAL MOBILITY AND INCREASED SELF-AWARENESS
With wavebalance®, its users benefit from their natural mobility and no longer experience the discomfort of chronic medical conditions or age. Treatments performed on the BalanceFloater bed actively support exercise programmes. As a result, even boring, repetitive exercises become a pure pleasure thanks to the use of water movement.
The wavebalance® programme can also be continued as an upright exercise both in the treatment room and when you return home. With minimal effort, such a workout can be woven into daily life activities and performed while you stand, walk, run or dance. People who use the programme simultaneously increase their self-awareness and learn how to cope with pain or excessive tension.
BALANCE FLOATER BED
BalaceFloater was developed in collaboration with wavebalance® creator Manuela Sonntag by Danish waterbed specialist Akva Waterbeds A/S. This makes the BalanceFoater ideally suited to the unique requirements of a wavebalance® exercise programme.
Thanks to the heated, relaxing water mattress, which provides harmonious support during movement and relaxation exercises, people using the wavebalance® method experience deep relaxation. This is because the flow of information to the central nervous system is intensely activated by the sensory system.
The special design of the BalanceFloater bed creates ideal conditions for optimal rest and exercise. The solid, upholstered frame allows for a firm grip when getting in and out of bed and provides the trainer or therapist with adequate support and a place to sit during treatments. Additional benefits during the treatments can also be achieved through the integrated sound system, which transmits music and sounds through the water to the body of the person receiving the treatments, where they are felt as gentle vibrations.
STRENGTHENING BODY, SPIRIT AND MIND
The essence of the wavebalance® method is to use the natural movement of water during treatments. When the person receiving the massage moves to the rhythm of the waves, blockages open up through the natural flow of energy in the body, and all joints, muscles, connective tissues and energy points merge into one harmonious system. This helps to strengthen their endurance, improve coordination and deepen their ability to relax. As a result, after the treatment, the posture of the Client/Patient/Guest becomes more upright, and their mobility is effectively increased. At the same time, at the end of the massage,
the person receiving the treatment experiences a deep state of harmony in which the body, mind and soul become one, and this allows the body to release its strength and self-healing processes.
THERAPY, EXERCISE AND RELAXATION
The wavebalance® technique has been developed for people of all ages and requires no prior preparation from the Client/Patient/Guest. Exercises in the programme are performed on a BalanceFloater bed, and their intensity can be individually adapted to the age and condition of the Client/Patient/Guest. If done regularly, it helps to achieve well-being and improve fitness. They are the ideal complement to therapeutic treatments, even for chronic diseases.
NEW PATTERNS OF DAILY MOVEMENT
Because wavebalance® activates the body’s own intelligence, its users discover for themselves what is best for them. Using wavebalance® movements and technique while walking, running or dancing, they perform rotational, counter-rotational and combined movements with greater awareness, integrating them into a complex oscillatory movement. By being more aware of the wave marks they leave behind as they move, they achieve a new holistic feel for their bodies.
CONTINUATION OF THE METHOD AS A PERSONAL EXERCISE PROGRAMME
The wavebalance® technique is about creative movements without emphasis on performance or competitiveness. After a few training sessions, the exercises learned on the BalanceFloater bed can be combined with movements performed vertically. This allows you to programme a personal exercise programme that can be easily integrated into your daily routine.
With the addition of stretching exercises and massages, the wavebalance® technique is an entire school of movement that significantly improves the quality of life as a form of self-help.
