what is bamboo fusion massage
Bamboo fusion massage uses different lengths and diameters of bamboo sticks. The smooth bamboo is warmed and then used as part of the massage therapy, much like hot stones are. However, bamboo holds heat longer than stones do.
The bamboo sticks are wrapped in a heating pad to warm them. The bamboo is easily cleaned and sanitized with antibacterial wipes.
During the massage the bamboo sticks serve as an extension of the hands and the therapist can easily palpate, find tension, and help to decrease that tension. They are also used to knead and stretch muscle and fascia in all directions. The pressure can be as light or as deep as necessary.
Massage lotion or oil is used with the bamboo. A twelve inch bamboo stick is used for large areas to knead the muscles and also uses a crisscross technique to stretch fascia. The shorter tools are used for small areas and deeper work. The warmth brings relaxation in a shorter time as it quickly penetrates to relax the muscles.
