Everything You Need To Know About Bamboo Massage

Updated: Dec 8, 2022

What is Bamboo?

Bamboo is one of the fastest-growing plants on Earth and has been known to represent durability, fertility, youth, prosperity, and serenity in Asia for thousands of years. Considered to be one of the most multifaceted plants on earth, bamboo has earned its reputation from its holistic and soft appearance, as well as its perseverance under any conditions.

Bamboo has been used in a wide variety of ways since ancient China, such as in bridges, floors, furniture, musical instruments, decorations, artwork, utensils, agricultural tools, and clothing. Bamboo has also been used as medicine, and over the last couple of decades has become a powerful tool in massage therapy. The good news is you can get this service now from Shapecare Therapy.

How does it work?

After laying down on the massage table, the therapist from Shapecare Therapy will apply oil on your body to get your skin ready for the bamboo. During the treatment, a therapist will use a variety of differently sized bamboo canes. The size of the cane will vary depending on your body type, desirable treatment outcome, and the area treated; the larger the area, the bigger the cane.

The longer sticks are used for gliding strokes on the larger muscles such as the back and thighs, while the smaller ones are used for more detailed work such as on the feet. The bamboo cane is able to give a deeper, firmer massage, and is held by the therapist and rolled over the muscle with the same strokes they would use with their hands. Hands are also used to give a more complete feeling to the massage.

Things you need to know before having Bamboo Massage:
