Warm Bamboo Massage: Everything You Need to Know
Imagine your muscles melting into deep relaxation; easing tension, pain, and stress… Doesn’t the sound of ultimate tranquillity sound irresistible?
Known for its healing properties, bamboo massage is one of the best ways to achieve balance and calm while energizing you both physically and mentally.
In fact, many Asian cultures such as China believe that bamboo represents energy, life force, fertility, eternal youth, strength, and prosperity. Bamboo is not only highly versatile, supple, strong, and resilient but it also grows quickly and is easily renewable, which makes it eco-friendly and affordable.
As you may know, at Thair Hair Boutique & Spa we’re dedicated to the best green, organic, and environmentally friendly sustainable way of living. As part of that, we’re proud to offer only the finest quality bamboo massage… and we’re sure you’re going to love it!
The Origins of Warm Bamboo Massage
The warm bamboo massage was pioneered by a Thai massage therapist named Nathalie Cecilia living in Florida, USA. Cecilia would use a long bamboo pole to keep her balance as she walked on her clients' back while performing Thai Massage.
One day she was working on a gentleman in the sitting position when the two bamboo poles that she used for back walking caught her eye. She decided to use one of the poles for a tapotement percussion stroke on his upper trapezius; this is a kind of rapid, rhythmic movement, usually performed by the hands but in this case, she tried something a little different.
Standing about six feet from him she began to tap on his shoulders with her long bamboo stick. The client loved the sensation, so Cecilia began to develop new ways to integrate bamboo sticks into her massage practice.
From there warm bamboo-fusion massage was born! And we’re so glad it was because it’s amazing!
How Warm Bamboo Massage Works
Did you know that bamboo retains heat? This gives it an extra dimension to the treatment because heat helps to relax tense muscles and increase circulation when applied to the body.
We use either a special bag to heat the bamboo sticks, or we lay them out on a heating pad covered by a towel. Our massage therapist then delivers the treatment by rolling, kneading, stroking, tapping, and applying pressure to your body with the freshly warmed bamboo sticks. It’s simply wonderful. They can also apply a deeper and more effective massage when using heated bamboo massage sticks.
It’s truly the definition of luxurious.
The Benefits of Warm Bamboo Massage
Although warm bamboo massages are not ideal for very slight people with more bony frames, for everyone else there are many benefits to this form of massage treatment.
For instance, since the bamboo sticks are heated, it enables a greater, more intense manipulation than basic massage movements allow for. Bamboo massage induces vasodilation, which increases the blood flow around the body helping to flush out all those unwanted toxins from your body, cleansing your internal organs. It’s the perfect way to rejuvenate your body, especially just in time for spring!
Bamboo massage also improves circulation by increasing the blood supply to your muscles while stimulating microcirculation and cell function to promote the rate of tissue repair. Lymphatic function also increases as a result of a general increase in circulation and the heat can relieve pain in both your muscles and your joints while decreasing tension in all your connective tissues.
Bamboo massage is also known to release endorphins—the body's natural painkillers—giving you a feeling of deep comfort and warmth throughout your body.
A warm bamboo massage not only has the advantage of delivering a relaxing massage but it also takes the pressure off of the therapist's joints allowing the massage therapist to perform a deep muscle tissue massage without any risk of injury.
So if you’re looking for deep relaxation, both physically and mentally, you won’t want to miss trying a bamboo massage. It’s honestly one of the best ways to reduce stress, enhance sleep, and increase your energy all while relieving mental and physical fatigue.
