Omer Shenar About & Philosophy 

My name is Omer. I was born in Eilat, Israel in 1972.

Today I live in Ericeira, Portugal and work as a freelance aquatic bodyworker world wide.

All my life I have been surrounded and motivated by water, from my childhood days on the shores of the "Red- sea", my teen years on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, during my army service in the Navy and as a surfer, to present day, as a professional Hydrotherapist - aquatic bodyworker.

For me, water as an element, is a formative force with a powerful, broad and deep philosophical meaning, nature as a metaphor for life and a reflector of being human.

Water is neutral and authentic, transforming and taking shape. It is a living matter, enveloping, nourishing and conducive, with rhythm, memory and dimension, flow qualities, permeation, penetration and absorption properties. Water is dynamic and changing.

The human body and mind ebb and flow constantly, above and below the surface. The water challenges us and encourages breathing, thoughts and a myriad of emotions.

I believe in entwine between therapeutic approaches, the "scientific west" versus the "holistic east", and to express it in practice during water treatments, this philosophy of practice is also expressed through the deep symbol of ״Yin and Yang", while understanding the relationship between land and water, providing tools for observing, assessing and coping. Together with my professional knowledge and experience, I can assist and encourage physical rehabilitation and supporting processes of body-mind-spirit healing.
