If you’re looking for a rejuvenating massage treatment, there is nothing better than the bamboo massage therapy.
What is it?
Bamboo massage is an innovative way to provide Swedish or deep tissue massage using heated bamboo to roll and knead the tissues to create an extreme sensation of relaxation and well-being. Bamboo massage is also used as a powerful preventive therapy against modern-day stress and to aid relief from many physical and emotional problems.
Technique used in bamboo massage therapy
A bamboo massage is typically done with a hollow organically-treated bamboo canes of different lengths and diameters, which are used at room temperature. Longer sticks of various widths are used for gliding strokes, whereas smaller tools can be used for more detailed work. The canes are used as a tool in all modalities of massage. This is believed to be an ancient therapy. The bamboo cane replaces the hand of the therapist. It allows to give a deeper, firmer massage. The cane is held by the therapist and rolled over the muscle with the same strokes they would use with their hands. The massage ensures circulation, sensory nerve perception and provides a deep sense of relaxation and serenity. Stimulation of the tissues by the bamboo stick helps in getting relief by dissipating the heat that results from an accumulation of toxins and poor circulation. The muscle is then kneaded, which assists in the release of tension and easing of knots. Similar to massage, it promotes circulation, relaxation and other general benefits.
Physical: When we apply the piezo-electric principles to the body, the electrical and thermal energy activates peripheral circulation. Enhanced circulation will remove stagnant toxins and move blood throughout the body, heart and lungs, improving internal respiration. Oxygenated blood will return nutrition and healing aid to the cells and tissues of the affected areas. This enables your work to be deeper to relax and realign muscle fibers without causing micro-tears. Working with the sticks is like creating a yin-yang, cause and effect. It is giving your body space for healing.
Mental-emotional: Emotionally, this therapy provides a total sense of relaxation. Stagnant emotions will surface once the patient feels relaxed, nourished, and has reached a point of trust. The movement that we bring to the session will encourage our clients to freely release and process all their “negative stuff.” With a clear mind and resolved emotions there will be balance and connection.
