About Us

COVID-19 UPDATE: Due to my inability to have access to the DolFUN SWIM Academy pool (where I practiced Watsu before COVID) until phase 2, I am currently seeing clients for Watsu in a outdoor backyard heated pool owned by a dear friend of mine, near Powell Blvd and 142nd. I am following all guidelines required from the State for performing massage, to keep us all healthy and safe as we can be.

Thanks for your interest in Aqua4Life Watsu Portland!

Watsu is the world's first form of Massage and Aquatic Bodywork offered in a pool heated to near body temperature. The therapeutic effects of bodywork are multiplied by the low-gravity, three-dimensional movement, and the warm, full-body embrace of water.

Aqua4Life offers Watsu to a wide variety of people and Aquatic Education for families...

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Victor asked pertinent questions about my health and attentively listened to my concerns. The massage session was truly tailored to my needs. I look forward to the next session.

    Victor is amazing with the kiddos.

  • As Víctor’s partner, I have had the privilege to witness his journey from his very first Watsu course until today, as a small business owner with a burgeoning Aquatic Bodywork practice. Over the years I’ve received aquatic bodywork from him as well as several other professionals. The quality and combination of services Víctor offers in the water are unparalleled! Whether weighed down by pregnancy or managing acute or chronic pain, Víctor unique set of bosywork skills combined with floatation is the ultimate in stress relief and healing. The sessions I had with Víctor during pregnancy were stellar—from his movement technique to his cráneo-sacral work (my personal fav) to his muscle untangling, all while floating in a blissfully warm, private pool—the best! Victor has swim shirts for you to borrow and ear plugs, and he creates a safe, judgement-free container for whatever sort of relaxation or healing journey your time in the water takes you on. Especially during pregnancy, Aquatic bodywork with Víctor is a must-try. Even with the special cushions, getting comfortable on a massage table while pregnant is tricky. Receiving bodywork while floating in water, who could ask for more!

    Victor was very professional, explained everything and fully addressed my health concerns. The session was fantastic! I felt my muscle tension melt away with the rhythmic movements in the water. I kind of felt like a mermaid!

  • I was not sure what to expect but this was an awesome experience. It was super relaxing and Victor was very informative and professional. Being in my 3rd trimester of pregnancy the combination of being weightless in the water and stretching was a magical combination.

    Great experience! Very relaxing and stress relieving!

  • I felt so relaxed and really enjoyed my session overall. I highly recommend trying Watsu if you never have before.

    The experience of Watsu with Viktor significantly helped me with an acute pain issue. After the session, while the pain was still present, my whole body was relaxed and I felt renewed and able to cope. I highly recommend Watsu for anyone with acute or chronic pain and/or stress.

  • Victor is absolutely amazing and the Watsu experience is the same. After the Watsu session, I left feeling relaxed in a way so much more complete than a regular massage. My mind had been calmed also.

    Thanks for a great first Watsu session - I felt like a fish! I don't usually get relaxation-based work, but this was pretty wonderful and helped my neck and hamstring as well. I would definitely recommend the experience to others.

Unbelievably talented!! Victor gave me a new understanding of wellness!!! Thank you!!!!!!!!!
by Kari on Nov 09
Victor has a wonderful approach to massage informed by many modalities. He listens and works with you, in effective-unaggressive ways. I felt lighter, more mobile, and grounded from my session with him. He also gave me great self-care exercises. The studio space is inside a gym, so don't expect to be pampered with hushed tones and aromatherapy—but savor the exquisite bodywork!

First time receiving bodywork from Victor and I'm already feeling so much better! He is very professional and uses a variety of massage techniques to treat my aches and pains. I'm excited to continue working with him.

My experience was wonderful. I have had the Aquatic Bodywork now 2 times and the second time was even better than first as I knew what to expect and my body was more in tune. Victor is so professional and present, and brings such caring and knowledge to the experience. I am going again for a 3rd time. Did I mention it is a mind and body experience.

Since watsu to me is more than just floating I highly appreciated the way in wich the therapist engaged in asking questions about my conditions. I felt very well taken care of and really had a full hour of good treatment!

My first Watsu was an amazing experience. It was deep and powerful yet gentle and effective. I was surprised how good my shoulder and arms felt, since they have been hurting for a couple of weeks before hand. I just love want to, I would love to have it every week. I feel it was very healing and helped me get in touch with my body, but also out of my head. Victor is very knowledgeable and grounded with a very healing personality.
