Bamboo massage therapy is one of the lesser-known forms of therapeutic massage. However, this massage therapy may very well rival the health benefits of therapeutic massages such as deep tissue massages and trigger point massages.
What is bamboo massage therapy?
Bamboo massage therapy is essentially the same as deep tissue massage or Swedish massage. However, rather than the therapist simply using their hands to warm the muscles and reduce pain in the ligaments and joints, the therapist uses a roll of heated bamboo.
The heated bamboo is kneaded into the tissue just as the therapist would use their fingers. Yet the bamboo allows the therapist to knead deeper and firmer than they would be able to with only their hands. The length and width of the bamboo used can change depending on the detail necessary for accurate gliding strokes.
