One-day Course

Oriental Warm Bamboo Massage - One-Day Course

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. It brings about increased circulation, relief of sore muscles and a deep state of relaxation. It incorporates bamboo stalks of varying lengths and diameters to provide drainage, relaxation and reshaping, simultaneously.
Bamboo symbolises suppleness and resilience, straightforwardness and simplicity; and the massage satisfies two major needs: relaxation and well-being.

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 helps 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.
