What is it?
Bamboo is an ancient plant which in oriental cultures is a symbol of well-being, flexibility, sincerity and good luck, perhaps the reason why it has become used for massage. As its name suggests, Bamboo Therapy is carried out using bamboo cane and constitutes an alternative to other relaxation and fitness therapies. It stimulates deep skin tissue, muscles, fatty tissue and even the body’s nervous system, all thanks to the contact of bamboo cane with the various parts of the body according to the needs of each patient. It is an ideal massage to purge and liberate toxins in our bodies and is applied specially to the legs, back and face.
How is it done?
To carry out the massage, various sizes and thicknesses of bamboo cane are used, depending on the specific part of the body being treated, and of course on each patient’s requirements. Either cream or oil is first applied, for example sesame seed oil, so that the bamboo cane can be applied firmly to the body, allowing it to move smoothly whilst being reputedly rotated over the skin. The friction, percussion and pressure of the bamboo over the body lead to a stimulus which allows better channelling of neuronal, nervous, cell, energy, emotional, muscular and circulatory systems as well as affording the patient a complete state of relaxation and physical, mental and spiritual tranquillity.
In short, a massage whose sensations and exotic stimulations works deeply into the skin and muscles, besides relaxing the person receiving it.
What are the benefits?
Among the principal benefits of this technique are the reduction of unwanted body shapes, the burning of fat, and absolute physical, muscular and mental relaxation. Besides, in liberating toxins the body’s metabolism is rejuvenated through stimulation of the circulatory system thereby improving skin tone, strengthening muscles, combatting cellulitis and helping reduce weight more easily than other types of massage since it distributes and even destroys fatty tissue, liquid or solid. If this were not enough, bamboo therapy firms up the skin, reduces wrinkles and facial expression lines, rejuvenates body tissue, and fights tiredness and exhaustion due to its sedative effect on the nerve endings.
Cellulitis is the accumulation of fat, toxins and fluid in certain parts of the body, the prevention and treatment of which is effected through physical exercise, a good diet, and massage.
