Hot Bamboo or “Bamboo-fusion” massage incorporates different lengths and diameters of bamboo sticks and stones. Warmed smooth bamboo, is integrated into a flowing Swedish massage. It brings the warming; soothing effect of the Himalayan salt stone massage to a new experiential level and brings amazing healing and relaxation to the body.
With the bamboo sticks as an extension of the hands the therapist can easily palpate, find tension, and dissolve knots and trigger points. They are used to knead and stretch muscle and fascia in all directions. The massage can go as light or as deep as necessary. Massage oil is used with the bamboo. A bamboo stick is used for large areas to knead the muscles and 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.
