Warm Bamboo Massage Therapy is the latest treatment to take the West by storm. Unique, highly beneficial and fun to give as well as receive – no wonder it is so appealing to both the therapists and the clients!

Warm bamboo massage can be carried out on the whole body including the face. It involves the use of warmed bamboo tools of varying lengths and diameter to roll, knead and relax muscles with numerous deep tissue and acupressure techniques. While increasing the circulation and improving lymphatic drainage it eases the sore muscles and promotes relaxation.

It can be carried out on a massage table or seated making it a flexible as well as portable treatment suitable even for mobile therapists. The equipment is light and easy to carry and the bamboo tools are easy to heat up.

Bamboo has been used in China for over 5000 years. Accordingly to the Traditional Chinese Medicine the leaves eliminate heat and phlegm; the juice cures insanity, and a kind of asthma caused by excessive phlegm; and the root can stimulate the vital forces, quench thirst, and promote lactation. Bamboo cupping jars were also used by the Chinese doctors.
