Our inner organs can be loose from the gravity
the organs are in a relieved state from that which pulls them down while they are detached from the spine via fascia.- each one of our inner Organs is attached through the Fascia, to the Peritoneum and some of them to the Spine, itself to signal information to the nerve system and the endocrine system when Gravity doesn’t apply, we can potentially offer bodywork to the system in a unique state. +Liberty to the peritoneum -the serous membrane that forms the lining for the abdominal cavity and its organs. Including all of the singular organs within it (as mentioned in Part 1) will experience more liberty than any other moment while gravity applies in its natural way, including when we lay down and sleep.
It’s an optimal way to connect to the water element within the 5 elements system of Chinese/Japanese medicine-
the quality of flow, of the moment of the peristaltic ongoing flow, of the liquids that flows between the organs, are the main principles to overcome stagnation. +In the grace of the warm water, the parasympathetic Nerve system operates well and offers a meaningful encounter with the Visceral system 🥞.

The belly represents the emotional world
usually is being affected by our strong emotions (butterfly in our belly 🦋 in the good case or dysfunctional reaction in cases of fear, grief, sadness, and such ) during the water therapy that opens many emotional Gates in our system, coming in touch with our emotional Organs make so much sense.
Water therapy is an emotional therapy and the belly is the archive of emotions.Practiced within the jungle, in the warm water from the waterfall of the island , This is another one of the great benefits of shallow water , that it holds heat most easily (more benefits of shallow water in the next post) , we practiced with our tribe and shared the experience with few guests from multi national origins, the magic of Koh Phangan Island
