MOVEMENT AND WATER PROPERTIES
The wavebalance® system is a comprehensive wellness concept and a complete therapeutic programme developed by a German physiotherapist and trainer of various techniques (such as Watsu), based on a specially designed water therapy bed with an integrated sound therapy system. Its individuality and uniqueness lie in the holistic combination of four elements – heat, water, wave movement and the therapist’s manual skills which, with the use of specific massage techniques, enable the creation of an atmosphere of complete rest and relaxation, creating the best possible conditions for therapeutic work and stimulation of the body’s self-healing powers. This creates a perfect synergy between therapist and Client/Patient/Guest using the healing power of water and sound to regenerate and revitalise the body.
THE WAVEBALANCE® METHOD AND SYSTEM CONSISTS OF FOUR BASIC ELEMENTS:
A unique wavebalance® treatment and movement therapy programme based on a range of well-researched physiotherapy treatments and kinesiotherapy and relaxation techniques, integrable with your current treatment offer,
BalanceFloater – an individually designed water mattress that allows you to perform treatments and exercises using the wavebalance® technique, which is additionally suitable for many other massages and treatments available on the market today,
Built-in AkvaAura sound programme, which uses the oscillatory properties of water to transmit music (the structure of water responds to any form of oscillation – music, words or even thoughts). It is the only system in the world where the intensity and frequency of three separate zones below the water surface can be independently regulated. In combination with special loudspeakers that use circular emitters to create a surround-sound effect based on the principle of spherical dispersion, it enables a natural and deep perception of sound,
A training programme for future wavebalance® trainers and therapists.
WAVEBALANCE® YOGA MASSAGE
During the treatment, the trainer or therapist induces rhythmic waves that spread throughout the body, and the complementary movement of the BalanceFloater bed during massage or therapy treatments supports the effects of water wave movement on the body. Wavebalance® massage techniques gently mobilise the joints and connective tissue, allowing you to achieve a state of deep relaxation and a feeling of lightness and floating. This makes every treatment a sensory experience for the whole body.
WAVEBALANCE® HARMONY MASSAGE – OIL MASSAGE USING WAVEBALANCE® TECHNIQUE
Oil massage using the wavebalance® technique combines care and full-body massage simultaneously in the supine and prone positions. Performed in a lying position, it allows the whole body’s movements to be synchronised with the rippling of the water and opens up blockages in the flow of energy in the body. The wavebalance® method ensures that the most delicate movements of the masseur are co-sensed by water vibrations and sound vibrations, which makes the Client/Patient/Guest feel the change from a dynamic to a relaxing massage more strongly and the therapist more easily recognise the difference between tense and relaxed muscles.
SIGNATURE RITUALS AND TREATMENTS (ORIGINAL)
In our wavebalance® care rituals, we additionally use oils, lotions, essential oils and scrubs made from natural ingredients, which nurture the body and affect the senses, allowing us to influence the individual problems and needs of each person: regeneration, vitalisation and harmony, as well as care for the body, soul and mind.
With wavebalance®, by using the expertise of your therapists and beauty partners, we can create unique treatments and rituals available only in your facility.
The wavebalance® system offers various treatments, including Ayurvedic treatments, Lomi Lomi massage, and facials and body wraps.
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.
EXERCISES USING THE WAVEBALANCE® TECHNIQUE
The exercises are a further development of the wavebalance® method, and the innovative training in this technique is based on learning the principle of primary movements performed in water.
By combining waving and circular movements, the wavebalance® technique ensures they are harmoniously combined. Through linear, circular and counter-rotating movements, the hips of the person receiving the treatment move in three-dimensional, symmetrical circles of decreasing intensity. At the same time, the BalanceFloater mattress undulates in line with these movements so that the wavebalance® technique gives movement training a new quality – it becomes inspiring, effective and enjoyable.
By taking advantage of water’s healing and regenerative properties, wavebalance® 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.
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.
