What Is A Warm Bamboo Massage And How Could I Benefit From Getting One?
Warm bamboo massage is a modality that anyone looking for either a relaxing and luxurious massage, or needing some serious deep-tissue bodywork for overworked and injured muscles, would benefit from. The body’s natural reaction to stress, whether it’s physical, mental or emotional, is to tense up and go into “fight or flight” mode. Chronic tension can cause the muscles to tighten and knot up. That’s when a dull ache can lead to pain as muscles become less flexible, and are more prone to injury.
This is what makes a warm bamboo massage ideal, as the soothing heat penetrates the muscles, it triggers the body’s automatic relaxation response making it easier for the therapist to access those areas of underlying tension. Throughout the massage several different pieces of warmed bamboo are used to work the tension out of each muscle. A variety of strokes are incorporated in different styles to stretch and compress the muscle and tissue. Once the body has been thoroughly warmed, the therapist will painlessly work out any knots that need some extra attention. The results are incredible, the body is able to completely relax as muscles get looser and joints become more flexible.
Who would benefit from a warm bamboo massage? Anyone who has tissue adhesions, stubborn knots and tension, long periods with little movement, spasms, muscle tightness, insomnia, strains, sprains, headaches, a cold (tail-end), or daily stress. Warm bamboo has numerous benefits including: improved overall health and well-being, increased energy and vitality, increased circulation, removal of metabolic wastes for faster healing and detoxification, and release of endorphins to promote relaxation and relieve pain. Warm bamboo is not advised for anyone with a heart condition, uncontrolled high blood pressure, lymphatic cancer, nausea, fever or the beginnings of a cold or flu. After a session with the warm bamboo, you’ll notice your stress and tension have been melted away; you’ll feel relaxed, renewed and rejuvenated!
