Bamboo Fusion Massage: 6 hours
Bamboo massage is an innovative way to provide Swedish or deep tissue massage using heated bamboo to roll and knead the tissue 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.
A bamboo massage is typically done with a hollow organically-treated bamboo cane of different lengths and diameters, which is warmed or 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 is able 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. Some therapists combine the elements of Shiatsu, traditional Chinese, Thai and Indian Ayurvedic techniques into the massage for best results.
The massage ensures circulation, sensory nerve perception and provides a deep sense of relaxation and serenity. Stimulation of the tissue 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.
This is a six hour beginners class of which the following topics will be addressed:
- Origin of, benefits of, and contraindications of Bamboo Massage
- Care of the Bamboo tool set
- Application of Bamboo~fusion technique
- Proper body mechanics of this deep tissue modality
- Marketing for Bamboo~fusion
