Jahara® is an aquatic therapy method founded in body awareness, healthy body mechanics and the gentle power of water. It consists of micro-adjustments of the structural alignment of the body.
These adjustments are done through the ActivExercises™ and Aligned Floating™ — when the Jahara® Specialist floats the client utilizing a number of slow, continuous circular movements.
Jahara's gradual, purposeful movements, together with the warm water, bring about relaxation and a feeling of well-being to the client.
Jahara® brings about an overall sense of expansion. Aided by a flexible flotation device, called the Third Arm™, the Jahara® Specialist provides precise support to the body structure. This support, combined with gentle traction, elongates the spine and decompresses the neuro-musculoskeletal system.
Jahara® is rooted on the understanding of two fundamental elements: the body structure and the unique physical properties of water.
This understanding is basic to healthier body mechanics. It means sound, safe treatments for clients, and is the key that enables the aquatic specialist to work regularly for many years feeling better and better in their own body.
The Jahara® Program is designed to help students develop their kinesthetic sense and learn to work in the water without effort by relying on practical knowledge rather than physical strength.
Ultimately, this effortlessness makes the Jahara® Specialist "invisible" in their practice, allowing the gentle power of water to become the foreground.
