What is Bamboo Fusion Massage?
Bamboo fusion massage, sometimes referred to hot bamboo massage, is a fairly new type of massage therapy made popular by Nathalie Cecilia.
The technique uses warm bamboo sticks for deep tissue massage work. The bamboo tool allows the massage therapist to use more strength and stamina for deeper pressure. The smooth sticks allowed for more penetrating maneuvers and make deep-tissue work easier.
Bamboo fusion massage is at the forefront of the massage industry, becoming the new treatment at top spas and resorts around the country. All Body Kneads is one of the first massage therapy locations in Lansing to bring this technique to the area.
This wonderful technique promotes a deep sense of well-being and delicious relaxation. Many clients report that the positive effects of the bamboo tools seem even longer lasting than deep tissue massage without the bamboo sticks.
Who “Kneads” Bamboo Fusion?
Anyone who enjoys massage therapy or requires it for healing can benefit from bamboo fusion massage. The method allows the message therapist to apply more pressure in an even manner over a large area, so patients who like deep-tissue work and harder massage pressure may prefer bamboo fusion massage.
How is the bamboo used?
Bamboo fusion massage uses different lengths and diameters of bamboo sticks and stones. 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 dissolve knots and trigger points. 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.
