25 - 28 Oct 2022 27th International trade fair for swimming pools, saunas and spas with congress for pool and bath technology

Internationally successful wavebalance® Therapy at the Interbad trade fair in Stuttgart, Germany



wavebalance® is a comprehensive therapy system, developed by physiotherapist

Manuela Sonntag. People of all ages benefit from the healing rhythm of the

waves. It’s unique feature is the holistic combination of warmth, water, wave

undulation and the manual skills of the therapist – as the basis for the full

unfolding of the body’s self-healing forces. This results in a perfect

interplay of therapist, patient and the healing powers of water with the aim of

‘reorganising’ and ‘reenergising’ the body of the patient.




BalanceFloater® as co-therapist


The optimum foundation for the undulating, rhythmically flowing movement and

treatment technique is the BalanceFloater®. In cooperation with Akva Waterbeds

A/S, wavebalance® has developed a treatment bed filled with approx. 500 litres

of warm water – for massages, therapies and movement. The therapy, aided by

the waves and undulating water, can be done with or without oil, the body being

massaged from above and below at the same time. The resonating water acts as a

’co-therapist’, reducing the therapist’s own energy expenditure at every





BalanceFloater® – various models available


The BalanceFloater® is available as model Fluid, Manual, Care or Active. The

narrow models BalanceFloater®Fluid and BalanceFloater®Manual are suitable for

practically all massage facilities. They are ideal for wavebalance® massages

with and without oil. The height is ideal for smaller therapists, and patients

can climb on and off the waterbed without stressing their backs. Simultaneous

anterior and posterior massage strokes are possible with the patient lying in a

supine position. Together with the movement of the waves, deep strokes are

possible, leading to a sustained mobilisation. Balance is regained in only a few





BalanceFloater® Aura with sound system


The BalanceFloater® Aura extends the wavebalance® programme to include the

component of music via a high-end sound system for water beds. The structure of

water reacts to every kind of oscillation – natural sounds, language or

soothing music. The core of the waterbed transmits the oscillation to the whole

body as palpable vibration. Feeling and hearing blend into one deep-reaching





Success story wavebalance®


Since its beginnings in the year 2009, wavebalance® has developed into a

world-renowned form of therapy. In China, Singapore, America and Europe, the

healing rhythm of the waves is being celebrated. In the neighboring country of

Austria, wavebalance® is introducing a major treatment innovation to three new

projects. Even in the desert kingdom of Saudi Arabia, they are looking to the

healing powers of water in the future.




More and more therapists and spa representatives are informing themselves about

these dynamic waterbeds on-site either at manufacturer Waterbeds A/S in

Ry/Denmark, at their trade partners, or through wavebalance® clients. Often

through a personal introduction from wavebalance® developer and physiotherapist

Manuela Sonntag herself.




What is convincing all these worldwide therapists is the unique effect that this

treatment has: the regenerative power of water combined with oscillation motion.

It is conducted either passively as 3D mobilisation by the therapist or as

active training by the patient. The flowing and dynamic movements are not

difficult for the patient, but are extremely effective. A fascinating







For the holistic wavebalance®System, Manuela Sonntag has developed a training

programme that is tailored to the individual needs of each spa and treatment

facility. Interested therapists can take part in Manuela Sonntag’s workshops

und regular trainings at the wavebalance®Academy in Wuppertal. Trainings in

small groups are also available for therapists in Wuppertal and Munich.




Premiere: wavebalance® Beauty Holistic Treatment


In Brussels, we premiered the Beauty Holistic Treatment for two (friends,

family, couple) on the large BalanceFloater®Active. The „Two on One Wave"

Treatment has become a huge success in Belgium. The BalanceFloater® as well as

the Treatment have received 5-star reviews by several renowned trade magazines.




An enthusiastic community of spa managers and therapists has been successfully

implementing the wavebalance® therapy system in the spa and therapy areas, and

further developing the system with their own creative ideas.




Interested visitors can now experience wavebalance® live at Interbad, the

international trade fair for swimming pools, sauna and spas: Manuela Sonntag and

her team look forward to greeting you from 27 – 30 September 2016 in hall 5 /

booth D70. 4/5. As a special pampering program, the wavebalance® founder will

be offering oil massages on the BalanceFloater® to make any trade fair stress

you may have disappear in no time at all.
