Treat your clients by learning how to do Warm bamboo massage.
This wonderful technique has been used in China for over 3000 years. It uses bamboo tools that are warmed and applied to the body along with oil that helps the bamboo tools glide as you knead and massage the client's body, giving them a relaxing massage with deep tissue techniques. The benefits include increased circulation, relaxation, more restful sleep, relief of stress, and improved lymphatic drainage and elimination of toxins. Warm bamboo massage is a powerful treatment which has the ability to both relax and energise as well as helping to relieve sore muscles.
