Bamboo Massagea

at is bamboo massage therapy?

Bamboo massage therapy is essentially the same as deep tissue massage or Swedish massage. However, rather than the therapist simply using their hands to warm the muscles and reduce pain in the ligaments and joints, the therapist uses a roll of heated bamboo. The heated bamboo is kneaded into the tissue, allowing the therapist to knead deeper and firmer than they would be able to with only their hands. The length and width of the bamboo used can change depending on the detail necessary for accurate gliding strokes.

Benefits of bamboo massage therapy
Bamboo massage therapy utilizes the technique of deep tissue massage, but with a firmer and more extensive technique to reach knots formed by lactic acid and other tension-causing wastes. Bamboo massage therapy improve your mobility, reduce pain and improve your skin. Bamboo extract contains silica, which assists your body in absorbing calcium, potassium, magnesium and other essential minerals that give your skin a healthy glow. Bamboo massage can also help to alleviate psoriasis and eczema because of its anti-irritant properties and antioxidants.
