Bamboo sticks are often used as serene decorations in relaxing spas. However, discovery dating back to ancient beliefs reveal bamboo’s revitalizing antioxidants can greatly benefit skin. This has made bamboo the perfect contribution for a rejuvenating massage. The use of bamboo during a massage provides essential minerals, as well as an effective treatment for the appearance of cellulite and body contouring..
What Is It?
A bamboo infused massage is a massage therapy technique performed with the stalks of bamboo for an advanced and relaxing deep-tissue massage. This method is often times combined with the popular cupping method, and is effective at promoting lymphatic drainage and relaxation. It is also said to provide patients with a sense of “whole body” health through sensory nerve perception and improved circulation.
How Does It Work?
Incorporating the use of stalks allows for deeper pressure and release of tension. The layer at which cellulite originates is also deeper in the skin. With the use of bamboo this level is able to be reached while also increasing blood flow in the body and to the skin. The rolling pin motion of the sticks activates the body’s response to naturally eliminate cellulite, tone muscles, and remove toxins that are trapped in the skin. The light friction of the massage is beneficial for remodeling and contouring common trouble areas that tend to accumulate cellulite. It also reaches deeper levels than alternative simple cellulite massages.
