What is Bamboo Massage?
Bamboo Massage is a table massage or seated massage where the therapist uses warmed bamboo tools of varying lengths and diameter to roll, knead and relax muscles with deep tissue techniques and is beneficial in that it brings about increased circulation, relief of sore muscles and a deep state of relaxation.
Bamboo Massage Therapy is the latest treatment to take the West by storm. Its recent surge in popularity is down to the effectiveness and appeal of the treatment.
The benefits of Oriental Warm Bamboo Massage are increased circulation due to more surface contact, more pressure can be evenly administered to the client‘s body, pressure is effectively maintained for longer periods of time, effective deep tissue work can be done in a shorter amount of time, allows pain free deep tissue work for bodies with lots of hair, aids relaxation, eases muscles aches and pains.
Benefits to Practitioners:
Using the bamboo sticks minimises stressing and straining the hands and fingers, while still allowing for deeply penetrating manoeuvres. At the same time we can maintain strong and healthy hands and wrists, the areas most susceptible to injury in our profession. Once you start working with the tools and learning how to feel through the bamboo they become an extension of your hands and fingers.
