Techniques used in Bamboo Massage Therapy
A bamboo massage is typically done with 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 and 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 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.
Bamboo Massage at the Vermont Salt Cave Spa
Bamboo massage is an innovative practice to provide Swedish or Deep Tissue Massage that incorporates the use of warm bamboo and rattan tools to roll and knead the tissue. This creates an extreme sensation of relaxation and well-being, and with the pivoting movements, along with kneading and rolling techniques, the muscles are softened. Bamboo Massage is used by many athletes, such as runners and cyclists that are experiencing tightness in their legs and feet. It is also used as a powerful preventive therapy against modern-day stress and to aid relief from physical and emotional problems.
