Warm Bamboo Massage
The Art of Bamboo Massage:
Known for its healing properties, this massage works at all levels to balance, calm and energize you physically, mentally and spiritually. There is nothing better than warm bamboo gliding over your skin while allowing the underlying tissues to soften and release. Bamboo massage can be performed with swedish or deep tissue allowing the bamboo to roll and knead the tissue. This creates an extreme sensation of relaxation and well-being.
Bamboo has earned its reputation from its holistic and soft apperance while symbolizing strength, fertility, youth, prosperity and peace.
A bamboo massage is typically done with hollow organically-treated bamboo cane of different lengths and diameters. Longer sticks of various widths are used for gliding strokes whereas smaller tools can be used for more detailed work.
***Warm bamboo is believed to be similar to hot stone therapy. It brings the warming, soothing effect of hot stone into the massage without the extra time, mess and prep work. In addition, bamboo is believed to hold the heat longer compared to the stones.
