Aquatic Bodywork is a blend of Massage, CranioSacral Therapy and Thai yoga massage.  It combines movements, stretching and stillness to increase mobility.

You will be gently floated in a warm pool (95 degrees), supported by floatation devices, while the therapist uses gentle swaying, rocking, stretching and rotation, allowing your body to unwind and completely relax.

YOU MUST BRING YOUR OWN POOL SHOES/ POOL SOCKS/ WATER SHOES .  Pool shoes are worn in the pool and have a grippy sole for traction.  This reduces your risk of slipping in the pool area.  They can be ordered from Amazon, Walmart.com, etc.  If you are ordering your shoes online, please allow appropriate shipping time for them to arrive before you schedule your appointment.  (You can also wear hiking sandals that can get wet.)


Appointment times are 7:30-8:30am on Tues-Fri.

The pool is inside High Plains Physical Therapy Center at 18 E Kansas City St, Rapid City, SD.  There are shower facilities available. Please wear swimwear. Individual ear plugs are available. YOU MUST SUPPLY YOUR OWN POOL SHOES.

Our bodies are made for movement.

But often we don't allow our bodies much freedom of movement - we tend to move our bodies in very controlled ways.  Even in exercise class, the teacher tells our bodies how to move.

Aquatic Bodywork allows me to read the body's clues to how it wants to move, and gives it permission in that direction.

In Aquatic Bodywork, we value stillness - because oftentimes we don't give that to our bodies.  We equally value the expression of movement and the releases that can happen from that freedom - whether the release is in our connective tissue, our musculature and holding patterns, or in our emotions.

Our bodies are made for movement.

Aquatic Bodywork is freedom of movement for your body.
