Imagine yourself floating in a weightless bliss, cradled on all sides by one of the world’s most steadfast elements: water. The world melts away and the only thing left is you.

No, this isn’t heaven, but it’s pretty darn close! This is Water Renewal Therapy, one of the specialty water massage therapy treatments offered at both our Hana and Austin locations. This experience is ideal for anyone who just wants to relax and is extremely beneficial for those seeking relief from sports injuries, surgeries, or other inconvenient ailments.

The treatment is simple:  As your body is supported in a shallow pool of warm water, a trained therapist moves and adjusts your joints, limbs, and muscles to reach a deep, meditative state of mindful stillness. This special technique uses the unique properties of full-body submersion in comfortably warm water to relax the muscles as the spine is supported by buoyancy.

While in a nearly weightless state of being, your muscles can be manipulated and relaxed through methods which can’t be practiced on land, leading to the glorified release of muscle and joint restrictions. This technique will leave you feeling tension-free, allowing you to focus on mindful personal insights and leave you with an overall calmness in your daily life.

At the Spa at Travaasa Hana, Water Renewal Therapy is performed in Maui’s first aquatic therapy resort pool where the serene setting is the perfect place for this experience. Leave the spa with a sense of tranquility that will remain with you throughout your stay. In the Travaasa Austin Spa, take the opportunity to experience weightless bliss before returning to the dreamy world of Balcones Canyonlands Preserve. Don’t miss out on this unique spa offering during your next trip to Travaasa.
