Massage with Bamboo
April 28, 2018 @ 8:00 am - April 29, 2018 @ 5:00 pm$290
Workshop Description: In this class we will look at how bamboo sticks can be used in a full body massage so that you can offer this as an additional, unique massage treatment. During this comprehensive training you will gain understanding of historical and therapeutic effects and benefits of bamboo massage. The indications and contraindications for bamboo massage will be discussed.
By the end of the workshop you will be familiar with the handling of the bamboo sticks, how to warm them, how to clean them, as well as learning a full body bamboo massage routine. Participants will also learn how to incorporate the use of essential oils for added benefit. This treatment modality not only adds enrichment to your massage sessions but also benefits you as a manual therapist by giving your hands a break using a tool.
This style of massaging with bamboo sticks can be relaxing, deep, specific and/or broad depending on your clients needs and which techniques are used. It is growing in popularity and is often requested. Come join in this training and register soon as class is limited and is expected to fill up early.
