How it Works
Bamboo Massage is a popular new treatment to hit the western spas and salons. Taking deep tissue to another level, bamboo massage entails the therapist using their hands to warm the muscles then using the bamboo sticks to work deeper where tension as built up, focusing on those ever forming knots.
The Bamboo stick techniques is perfect for releasing large and stubborn areas of tension across the back and whole body. Once muscles are warmed sticks are rolled and manipulated over soft tissues to break up tight muscle and connective tissue fibres.
Bamboo massage originates from China, and what may seem like a new approach to massage to us, it has been used for many years with simple body works in the east.
Combine with Hot Stones!

Hot Stones are used frequently at YOU Massage Therapy and in Massage practices world over to highly effectively soften hard muscular tesnion, boost circulation and toxin disposal and relax tight areas. It's the perfect companion to our NEW Bamboo Soft Tissue Therapy as the sticks are only incorporated once the tissues are warmed.
The Hot Stones provide 6 x deeper penetration the the tissues, softening and drawing fluid through the muscles, as well as totally relaxing you, it's like a big fluffy blanket has been wrapped around you, so comforting! The sticks can then penetrate the muscle fibres, 'ironing' out kinks and crossed fibres that cause little knots and hold muscles tight.
