Hot Bamboo Massage /Alternative to Deep tissue
This wonderful technique promotes a deep sense of well being with long lasting effects. It's both healing and relaxing while leaving you in a deeper state of relaxation from head to toe.
Smooth heated bamboo massage uses a combo of long and short sticks as an extension of the hands. Large bamboo is used to stretch large areas of muscle and fascia while, the shorter sticks are used for smaller areas of tension, to release (knots) and trigger points that may be causing pain and/or restricted range of motion. Swedish massage strokes can be applied with lighter pressure or varying to Deep as necessary. The warmth of the bamboo holds heat longer than traditional hot stones and allows for deeper penetration of the muscles more quickly. This unique flowing massage brings a warm soothing approach like hot stone but gives more strength for the ultimate deep tissue massage.
Deep Tissue Massage: Release Chronically tight muscles through slower strokes and applies direct deep pressure. Focuses on specific problem areas to lengthen layers of connective tissue in muscles and fascia. Decrease scar tissue, in old injuries, increase range of motion and reduce chronic pain.
