Watsu® for You?
Rockwater Secret Cove Resort Soaks up the Latest 'It' Spa Treatment

News Release January 2009

HALFMOON BAY, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA: Rockwater Secret Cove Resort and the newest spa on the Sunshine Coast, Aorai Spa are making a splash teaming up to create the Aorai Watsu® and Eminence Spa Package. Marrying classic and new, your Rockwater retreat has you spending some serious spa time with two pampering treatments: an hour-long Eminence Classic Facial at Rockwater’s Winter Spa Tent or the warm weather Spa Without Walls, and a 50-minute Watsu® warm water therapy treatment at the Aorai Spa in Sechelt. Stay overnight at Rockwater Secret Cove Resort in an ocean view room at The Lodge or a cozy ocean side cabin, and find a gift basket waiting for you filled with 100% natural Eminence spa products available through Rockwater Secret Cove Resort Spa. Deluxe Continental breakfast the morning after completes the package for blissed-out spa-goers.

If you haven’t heard of Watsu®, you’re not alone. Developed by a shiatsu instructor in the 80s, this off-the-grid treatment is still relatively unknown. Unique to the West Coast, offered at exclusive Resort Destination Spas throughout the U.S. and internationally, Aorai Spa is the first to offer this form of aqua therapy. Combining Zen Shiatsu techniques with the therapeutic benefits of a 35 degree saline pool, Taylore Sinclaire, Certified Watsu® Practitioner, creates treatments that blend graceful and liberating movements, along with massage and Shiatsu point work guiding you through a series of yoga-esque moves as you dreamily float on. Clients experience expansion, softening and ultimately, a deep sense of relaxation. Now, this exclusive treatment has washed ashore on the Sunshine Coast, and Rockwater Resort is the first to take the plunge.

The Aorai Watsu® & Eminence Facial Spa Package includes:
One Night Accommodation in an Ocean View Room or Ocean Side Cabin
Deluxe Continental Breakfast
50-Minute Aorai Watsu ® Spa Treatment
60 Minute Eminence Classic Facial Treatment
Spa Gift Basket upon arrival

The Aorai Watsu® & Eminence Facial Spa Package starts at $299.00CAD per person based on double occupancy. To dip into this package, please call 604.741.6108 or visit
