Warm Bamboo Massage

Warm Bamboo Massage is a type of massage that is relatively new to the UK. I am one of very few massage therapists in the area who can provide this type of massage at the moment.

I warm up bamboo sticks in a special warmer, and as with hot stone massage, I massage your body to cover you in the oil, allowing the bamboo tools to glide over your skin. The bamboo tools apply an even pressure across the whole muscle. The sticks vary in shape and size, which allows me to use them in different ways to penetrate different muscles on your feet and back, etc. Like the hot stone massage, the warmth from the bamboo sticks penetrates deep into your muscle tissue – if you like a deep tissue massage then you will love this. Bamboo massage enables you to have a pain free deep tissue massage. It is also good for bodies with a lot of hair as the sticks don’t get caught or pull on them.

What is so good about bamboo?

In many Eastern countries, bamboo is considered to have many natural healing properties. Bamboo has many different uses, not just in the spa and therapy industry – it is increasingly being used for household items like cutlery, crockery etc. What’s more, it is used in the building trade in many countries for scaffolding as it is known for its strength and endurance even in the harshest conditions. Bamboo is a fast growing plant, so it is easily replenished and eco friendly.

Bamboo is thought to be lucky and symbolises fertility, strength, youth, wealth and peace. This extraordinary plant has become one of the most coveted beauty ingredients.

Warm bamboo massage also has the following benefits:

  • Excellent tool for deep tissue massage
  • Used as a strong and powerful therapy that relieves the modern day stresses of work and life
  • Creates a heightened sensation of relaxation and well-being
  • Many people say that bamboo massage aids in the best sleep patterns.
