Update on Watsu Creator Harold Dull

ABMP wanted to share an update on our dear friend Harold Dull, the creator of Watsu. Since our last visit with Harold for the July/August 2018 issue of Massage & Bodywork, his health took a turn. Shortly after featuring Harold in that issue, and photographing him in the pool for one of the last times, a tumor was discovered and he underwent a laryngectomy, which required him to breathe through a stoma in his throat. Since September 2018, Harold has been unable to speak, drink, or eat. And sadly, has been unable to go back into a pool. At the time, Harold wrote us: “The support of my family and my Water Family has been great.” Today, we’ve learned that Harold is in hospice care at his home, with his wife, Pavana, by his side. Please keep the Dull family in your thoughts, and feel free to visit this link to show your support: www.gofundme.com/f/harold-dull-and-family-needs-help.
