Damage/torture to paralyse, but preserve sensations

I have two characters getting vengeance on a third. One of the torturers has very detailed knowledge of anatomy and various torture methods, the other has magic control of water - including water in the human body, so they can inflict just about any damage, even pin-point precise severing of particular nerves or tendons.

How would they go about making sure their victim is completely paralysed - from the neck down, certainly, unable to speak, and if possible unable to do anything but blink - but conscious and able to feel pain in all his body?

The state has to be permanent, and allow him to survive with contemporary medical technology and good care (in a German hospital) for about fifteen years.

I've googled all sorts of medical terms, but the requirement to preserve pain sensation stumps me.
