Warmed Bamboo Cane Massage
Bamboo massage is enjoying a strong expansion in physiotherapy, aesthetical and massage centres. It is now used in treating muscular pain, stimulating blood and lymphatic circulation, skin contour modelling and strengthening the cellular structure of the skin. Similar in benefits to deep tissue massage and skin aesthetics, yet it is more soothing during treatment, as it smoothly massages, warms and relaxes the mind and body.
The sustainably sourced and organic round bamboo poles are steam pressed to kill micro-organisms. Steve chooses the appropriate size for the body area, such as the lower back, gluteals, calves, or hamstrings. Distinct muscle areas or a full body massage can be enjoyed with the variety of bamboo. The canes are rolled, slid, and pressed onto the skin and into muscles in a variety of massage techniques, including the ancient techniques of the Aburanuki tribes of China, aswell as modern fascial release.
During the massage, the organic bamboo releases powerful antioxidants and silicon, which repair and nourish the skin, making it toned and elastic with a lifting effect. Gliding sunflower, sweet almond and rose hip oil form a hydrating, lubricating and anti-inflammatory base to further enhance skin tone and make an anti-cellulite treatment.
Steve recommends combining the warmed smooth bamboo cane massage with the rougher, exfoliating effect of a sizzling or steamed hot compress massage. He likes to alternately use both the smooth cane and coarser compress in a heated massage at this same price.
