WHAT IS AN ORIENTAL WARM BAMBOO MASSAGE TREATMENT?
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. It is regarded as a body, face 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.
- Increases 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
- More effective work can be done in a shorter amount of time
- The warmth from the bamboo aids in relaxation
- Delivers an incredible sensation of relaxation and calm
- Reduces stress and fatigue
- Stimulates blood circulation
- Relieves muscular tension
- Aids in Lymphatic circulation
- Benefits clients both physically and emotionally
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, as we hold the bamboo sticks, that energy is transmitted to us, which will help us to 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. But the bamboo is also a channel for us, taking our massage to more meaningful level, giving our work a new depth and dimension.
