Warm Bamboo Massage is a traditional Chinese practice that allows the therapist to provide a deeper and firmer massage than may be possible with hands alone.
It is said to have originated in South East Asia when a therapist noticed one monkey rubbing another’s back with a stick!
Warm Bamboo Massage is a table 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. It is regarded as a body and limb massage that incorporates bamboo stalks of varying lengths and diameters to provide drainage, relaxation and reshaping, simultaneously.
Bamboo symbolizes suppleness and resilience, straightforwardness and simplicity; and the massage satisfies two major needs: relaxation and well-being.
The Benefits of treatment include:
* 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
How does Bamboo massage work?
It allows the therapist to utilise gravity-assisted leverage with bamboo tools using their own body weight, while the bamboo tools combined with a special oil, glide over the contours of the client’s body to give a well-needed deep tissue massage. The warmth of the sticks relaxes the body, melting away all the cares of the world as the heat penetrates the deeper layers of the skin surface, increasing circulation, relief of sore muscles, and a deep state of relaxation.
